Absolute Darkness India Dark Ale – Vancouver Island Brewery

Limited Release

From Victoria BC’s Vancouver Island Brewery comes their new limited release “Absolute Darkness India Dark Ale” a Cascadian dark ale.  This CDA pours an opaque black with a small brown head.  The aroma consists of roasted malts, floral hops and chocolate.  The flavour is of roasted malts, burnt coffee, pine and hops bitterness.  The alcohol content of this brew is 6.5%.  This is a wonderful CDA with a great balance between roasted malts and hops bitterness.

Commercial Description:  {Absolute Darkness} Just like the eerie sensation that local cavers feel when going “lights out” in one of the Island’s 1,000+ recorded caves, our IDA is a deep descent into your taste buds. Dark in colour with a prominent Northwest hop aroma, the body is balanced with semi-sweet malt flavours of roasted coffee and chocolate. So go on and take a sip into absolute darkness.

    I love this beer… and the bottle is glow in the dark! I’d love to see the liquor store the moment after they turn out the lights at night, this bottle would be glowing on the shelf! Too cool!
