Game Day Beer Review: Granville Island Brewery Cloak & Dagger Cascadian American Black Ale

(6.25% ABV). Purchased at the Granville Island Brewery and drunk that very same evening at the Sutton Place Hotel in Vancouver, Canada.

Cloak and Dagger poured a root beer black color with a toffee colored head filled with bubbles of mixed sizes.  The beer smelled hoppy more than anything else, but there was a certain malt balance evident, as well. Upon a second sniff, we also caught a whiff of chocolate.

The dark chocolate and hops were  apparent on the finish of this medium bodied beer; it was fairly well carbonated, too. Nothing to write home about, but we wouldn't turn it away, either. B
