750 mL corked bottle to tulip glass

Rich mahogany in color, almost cola like, this Sang Noir gives off a rich, complex and unique aroma, given the style. The typical lactic punch in the nose is toned down, replaced by notes of ripe berries and grapes. Red wine-like nose.

The flavors are even more complex with deep notes of oak and cherries and an almost chocolaty/carob-y aspect. A little more sour than the nose, this is still more complex and oaky than puckering-ly sour. Booze is noted, but not overwhelming given the 10% ABV. Medium finish that closes a lot like red wine, with tannins and oaky residuals lingering between sips.

Probably the best beer from Cascade. I had this a year ago or so, and did a quick rating - relaxing with my own bottle seems to be an even more satisfying experience.
