4.33/5 rDev +1.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: Pours with a mighty head that quickly
recedes, dark brown in color.
Aroma: Super well defined clean bourbon wafts
out, and then the random lactic sour smell comes, seemingly from nowhere. Smells great, but really kinda weird. Vanilla and brown sugar (dates?) come through.
Taste: Sweet n sour, oak, smidge of bourbon, but not to an overpowering extent. Brown sugar, damp oak, lactic acid. Super hidden alcohol, 12%?! Never would have guessed! So strange but I really like it.
Mouthfeel: Relatively thin and effervescent. Carbonation creates
percieved fullness, so it's not really a problem. Good for a wild ale, weird for a bourbon barrel beer. Buuut it works well for the beer.
Drinkability: Each curious sip invites another to see if you can find out what the hell is going on. Again, no hint of the 12.1% ABV, except for the buzz I seem to be getting. This beer is an enigma. A delicious, delicious enigma.

2009 bottle poured into a snifter. The brew appears a clouded brown color with a khaki head. Some mahogany look to it when held to the light. A swirl revives the cap painting patches of lace on the glass.
The aroma is quite vinous initially, then fruity with dark sugars and vanilla. A soft amount of oak. As it warms up, it gets a hint of vinegar overtop molasses, caramel, toffee and earth.
The taste is sour but not sharp. It is vinous and fruity with vanilla, and chocolate malt, vinegar, earth and almost nutty/meaty in the aftertaste. The blend and contrast of fruity/sour verse caramel/vanilla is truely unique and memorable.
This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. A really unqiue blend of flavors and hands down the best Cascade offering I have had...dare I say top 2-3 best dark sours I have had to date. Wow, I want more of this.
