BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Cascade Brewing / Raccoon Lodge & Brewpub
Oregon, United States
cascadebrewing.com

Style: American Wild Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 13.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

Tasted this at Cascade Brewing in Portland where it was featured as a live barrel. Smelled uncannily like port (currants, raisins). Several layers of flavor: sour cherries, porter, bourbon notes. Overall, outstanding.

04AUG12 - at barrel house. From the live cask.

This beer blew my mind. I would pay $25 for 12oz of this, and buy a case. Seriously.

Nice and dark brown with cherry hues. Flat appearing. (This beer will get inflated appearance score simply because I feel it deserves it based on the overall experience) The Nose is cherry - sweet, dark cherries. Sherry, oak, vanilla, tawny port, caramel, hints of sour cherries as well. I spent quite a bit of time in the glass of this beer. Then ordered more to share with the wife. I can't articulate the nose on this beer. Flavor was a blend of ruby and 10yr tawny ports, vanilla, cherry, slightly sour, leather, tobacco, tanning oils, slightly toasted sugars. Fuck, I don't know - the stuff you wanna taste - it was here. Full bodied with a viscous finish and velvety feel.

Please, make more.
