    So, I had brew earlier this afternoon called Cascade Black & White Coffee Sour. It's not listed here, and Cascades website is less than zero help. I'd like a bit more info before I add it. Anybody help a brother out?

    Yeah the one I had was a nice clear golden color but smelled like a stout and had some stoutish qualities in the taste before the pale malt character kicked in. I can't say I liked it but it was interesting.

    1st time actually. Live in Seattle, but have work obligations in Tacoma that are pretty heavy this time of year. Got the last seat at the bar - cool spot.

    Yes. Extremely interesting beer. Have never had anything posing as a blonde that just kicks you in the head with coffee. Definitely worth trying.

    With the caveat that I don't like coffee, it was, uh, interesting. It was fun to try a coffee beer that wasn't a stout or porter, but the coffee was so intense, that I couldn't taste any beer in it. It had plenty of coffee bitterness, but I didn't get any sour at all.

    This beer uses Oblique's Landauer Coffee beans. I preferred the coffee blonde that used Oblique's Harrar beans instead. This is the third beer that Cascade has used beans from this roaster in case anyone was wondering.

    Cascade black and white coffee stout. Not sour, stout. You try it at Elizabeth station?

    Yes. They had it labeled as a sour stout, but things get mislabeled sometimes. Did you get out to NF for some Spotted Owl?

    No. Bummed. Was running short on time. Sounds like good stuff though.

    I was at a tasting earlier this week, and Eric, the brewer at NF, was there too. He said that it's not moving fast, probably because of the $20 price. It should be there a while, if you get the chance.
