UPDATED: JAN 4, 2013 750ml bottle courtesy of CaptainCougar. Really nice merge between a sour and a big bourbon beer. Sweet huge brown ale, but completely balanced by the sour tones. Dark orange brown body. The sour starts to eat away at other flavors Excellent beer.

mcberko (9224) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 15, 2012
750mL bottle, courtesy of bvc (thanks Brandon), pours a deep murky dark amber brown with a small tan head. Aroma is very complex, full of oak barrels, dark fruits, maybe some bourbon barrels, no hint of the spices – very deep and complex, characterized by red wine oak barrel complexity. Flavour is remarkably complex, with dates on top, loads of woody oak barrels, mildly tart fruits, a slight hint of bourbon, and loads of other dark fruits. The tartness is not overbearing, but perfectly accented, with both the wine and bourbon barrels well situated amongst the many flavours. Lively carbonation, which brings out all the complexities perfectly. Extremely complex and delicious stuff – a highly complex sour.

Brown with tan head. Bourbon and fruit nose. Taste is some dark fruit and toasted sugar with good tartness. Medium body and carbonation. Pretty good beer.

Bottle provided by CaptainCougar. Thanks! Poured a really nice brown color with a tiny tan head. Aroma was sour notes, a touch of vanilla. Flavor was vanilla oak, with some bourbon and a touch of sour notes to it. A nice melding between a sour and a bourbon barrel aged ale.

UPDATED: JUN 17, 2013 750ml bottle: Pours a clear deep copper amber with a spotty-lacing beige head. Has a sweet toasty malty nose with some black cherries and bourbon oak. Starts with good effervescence and toasty malty sweetness with good tart balance and bourbon complexity before a drier a bittersweet finish.

750ml bottle thanks to drez77. This beer was a pretty good gusher but at least it didn’t spray the ceiling? Dark brown and it has a good head. Smells very odd with the porter malt aroma conflicting with sour and just ouch..The flavor was a disaster to me, so many things in conflict: porter, sour, cinnamon, barrel, yuck! This is like Ron Burgundy drinking milk on a hot day: a bad choice. I love sour beers but this was just a let down. I drainpoured my glass :( Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 04-06-2011 04:18:04

Pours a dark brown with no head. Aroma of a bourbon barrel impy stout. Taste is bourbon, smoke malt and sour. Different, not my favorite cascade but still really cool ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
