Named after an area in Western PEI where the shore appears black from layers of peat moss, Black Banks Cascadian Dark Ale is deceptively dark. It’s like a little lie in a glass. At first glance you might expect strong, roasty and coffee aromas, but instead you’ll get a snoot-full of bright citrus and tropical hop aromas gliding just above mild but rich chocolate and bread-crust aromas.
Brewed with roasted wheat, hopped like mad with Millennium, Cascade, Amarillo, and Columbus hops in the boil. We dry hopped with Falconer’s Flight, a blend of aromatic hops from the Pacific Northwest.
