Gathering Storm Cascadian Dark Ale

<p>Most people would say that the Howe Sound Gathering Storm Cascadian Dark Ale doesn&rsquo;t even exist. This beer sold out before it hit the shelves of most craft retailers. The colour is a dark brown with 2+ fingers of head topping the glass. The head is thick and settles slowly. The smell coming off this beer is thick with chocolate and a crisp Northwest style &ldquo;Cascadian&rdquo; hop. The flavour is full and heavy with notes of coffee and chocolate masking the strong hop bitterness. This beer has a perfect balance of sweetness and bitterness giving the palate something to be excited about. As a seasonal beer this combines the best of a dark and full flavour with the hoppyness of a crisp IPA. This is a great tasting beer.</p>
