You absolutely DO NOT want to use black patent...use a Carafa. The black patent will impart way too much burnt bitter astringent roast character. The Carafa is dehusked/ debittered and contributes color without significant flavor. You get a hint of roastiness but not the acrid flavor the black malt will give you.
A Cascadian Dark Ale should taste much like an IPA with a subtle roasty character that brings out a different side of the American hops used than a traditional IPA.
