The Darkness is Back

Just in time for the fall season…
The Darkness, Cascadian Dark Ale
An India Pale Ale, in all things but colour, it's hoppy, bright, and packed full of big flavours.
Dark, dark, dark. Pours with almost stout-like black inkiness, capped with a nice tan head.
First sensation is the hop forward presentation from copious amounts of late hops, and dry hops. It's followed by a gorgeous roasty body with a hint of wheat chewiness, fruity middle notes and then backed up by bracing bitterness in the finish.
This is the time of year when you concentrate on staying warm and comfortable, and crave those rich flavours of the season. The Darkness Cascadian Dark Ale fits the bill perfectly.
Get it on tap at select bars in Halifax.
It will be available in 650 mL bottles at select NSLC stores, Saturdays at the Alderney Farmer's Market, and Saturdays at the Halifax Seaport Farmer's Market.
Of course, you can also get it at the brewery retail store at 78 Ohio Road in beautiful Shelburne.
