4.56/5  rDev +1.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Bottle poured into a teku glass.

Pour: Completely hazy deep, deep red with some murky brown aspects mixed in. A finger of light tan head appears and dissipates quickly.

Smell: Wow. I get tart cherries, tobacco, leather, vanilla, a light bourbon, and a hint of funk. What a combination - and it's incredible.

Taste: Even better than the nose. Tart cherry with no hint of sweetness. Instead, sweetness is provides by a nice tobacco caramel, mixed with some vanilla and leather. A lactic acidity provides an amazing bite without being cloying. An oakiness rounds out the flavors and incorporates them together. This is exquisite.

Mouthfeel: I know some people say Cascades can be overly sour, but I love how tart this is. Carbonation is on point. The barrel aging provides a buttery smoothness.

Overall: The merging of bourbon barrel and pinot barrels in the aging process of this beer produced a whole new kind of beast. I will absolutely seek this out again.

4.33/5  rDev -3.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A - Deep, dark, ruddy brown. Almost Rodenbach Grand Cru territory but not quite. Pink cream head.

S - Definite sweet bourbon on the nose.

T - Bourbon nips the palate. Bourbon, cherry and port are the main takeaways.

M - Dry. Letting the beer wash around the mouth provokes pucker.

O - I didn't particuarly like the flavours in this beer, but I did find it interesting so I gave it a higher overall score

Serving type: on-tap
