2013 vintage at the brewery. Had a lot of great sours here, but for me this was the best.

Belgian candi sticks out, while the vanilla bean and bourbon components are blended in perfectly. Great body, nice roasting as but just the right amount. It's sweet, but I like that and can't find anything to complain about here. A+

I saw this among a list of sours, and I'm always down for a good stout.

Look: Black with very little head.
Smell: Chocolate, coffee, and strong dark malts.
Taste: Initially it has a light bitterness from the choice of malts, then a wash of chocolate and coffee, then ends with a light sweetness.
Feel: I love my stouts thick as oil, but I was surprised I wasn't missing the viscosity.
Overall: I really enjoyed this, it was nice to see a predominantly sour brewer make a delicious stout.

On tap at Borefts 2015. Dark pour with a litthe espresso head. Smooth moutfeel and excellent aroma and taste notes of coffee, milk chocolate and cocoa. Very well balanced.

A - Dark and stormy rum complimented by a rim of mocha-camel foam. Elegant lacing endures.

S - Milk chocolate and hazelnut. Melted Nutella spread on toasted white bread.

T - Sweet, mellow vanilla-bean bourbon. Awesome and delicious. Spiced rum, cinnamon and nutmeg. Chocolate malts shine through, pairing wonderfully with the cocoa beans with which it is aged. Phenomenal chocolate character.

M - Gorgeous and with lovely balance. My only criticism is that it could be thicker and with greater viscosity.

O - Astonishingly, I found this far more impressive than all of the sours on which Cascade made their name. And I tried every single sour pouring. Truly a phenomenal beer which took me completely by surprise. Underrated for sure.
