I talked with Glenn Cole about hops this week and the role in flavor they have.  It's interesting how the growing environment has so much to do with flavor.  But it's the reason there's such thing as a New England IPA vs a West Coast IPA.

But we should've planned better because it's Radicle Effect's 7 Days of Darkness celebration. 7 Days. 7 Beers. From what I understand...the darkness comes from the malt. The more the grain is roasted the darker & more complex the pallet becomes.
I think.  You should go to Radicle Effect Brewerks to find out for sure.
In the meantime, you can check out Glenn's Podcast "What's Tappening" here where they talk with brewers from...not only the QC but all over the world.
