Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Mahlik on 12-14-2011

This NW-style sour ale is a special treat from the blenders. We took a 20 month old Thai cinnamon version of the Bourbonic and aged it a further four months on Bing cherries. Dark cherries, Bourbon and spices greet you in the nose. Big, rich, dark cherries, dates, oak, leather and tobacco dance on the palate. Deep cherry notes, dark fruits and a warming Bourbon flavor finish this off as only the Bourbonic can.

EBF sample. Pours a ruddy brown. Smell is all over the place. Sour cherry, lots of oak, spicy notes, caramel. Flavor is both sweet and impressively sour. Sour cherry, sweet cherry, brown malt, yeast spice and a bunch of bourbon. It's clearly more complex than a 2 ounce sample can ever evoke on my palate. I was stunned to find that this was 13% ABV. Booze is hidden very well. It's a beast of a beer.
