BuckeyeBoy (2469) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 11, 2011
750ml bottle Pours out darker brown topped with a tan head. Aroma was of bourbon, oak, vanilla, pit fruit, and funk. Taste was much as the aroma with the bourbon leading the way. I have to say I was really excited to try this as soon as I heard about it. When we opened it what a letdown, but as it sat it opened up and made a comeback. Unfortunately it didn’t live up to my hopes.

TimE (2978) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 8, 2011
moderately sour mouth, notes of bourbon, oaky, vanilla beans, a touch of chocolate. Alcohol is well hidden. Moderately sour finish with a touch of brett. Sour dark cherries linger as well. Bourbon and funk dominate the nose. Nice.

jrallen34 (3478) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 30, 2011
Another big thanks to Sean for brining this pair...Pours a watery dark brown, semi clear, not overly attractive. Light tan head with some nice retention, spotty lacing...Aroma full of oak, spicy bourbon, acidic...Taste is lactic oak, almost reminds me of something infected, spice shows off predominantly too. The taste is less successful. A weird oaky finish that I don’t like. Decent, but nothing special at all.

JoeinEscazú (1325) - Ozark, Missouri, USA - MAR 11, 2011
Something like a funky chocolatey barley wine. Naughty. Faint lambic leanings but a resolute imperial stout babckbone, still a touch sweet, with long and lingering chocolate taste. Weird. Damned interesting.

thirdeye11 (5394) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAR 5, 2011
(GABF 2010) dark brown pour with dark tan lasting head. Nose of pipe tobacco, raisin, cherry, light acetic and brown sugar. Taste of sweet brown sugar, tart cherries, tobacco and caramel. Sweet creamy finish, nice beer.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAY 2, 2011
Bottle. I keep finding im not a big fan of strong sours. Pours a hazy bruin body with a yellow off white head. Big bourbon and bugs up front. Huge warmth, sour cherry and fig. Sticky with vinegar and a big sour warmth. Seems really messy and phlegm inducing. Not a big fan.

TheEpeeist (3187) - Swarthmore, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 25, 2011
25.4 oz bottle. Dark brown with clear edges and a haze. Nose is funky, dusty sour cherry and dates with hints of vanilla and cinnamon. Tough to pick out the spicing without knowing beforehand. Medium light with a tingle. Taste is very complex with cherry jam, sour citrus and bourbon, cinnamon and a touch of dates. Not as acetic as the aroma with a surprisingly balanced flavor profile.

Served in a snifter. Pours a somewhat-dark brown color with a bit of a crimson hue. Slight retention as well as a nice cap as it settles down. The nose brings forward a sourness as well as some funk and oak. Strong lactic character. A bit of bourbon. The flavor is quite strong with some bourbon, booze, and a bit of a sour character. The flavor and feel have a bit of a strange astringency plus quite a bit of booze. Very odd indeed. I did not like this nearly as much as the Vlad. Probably my least favorite Cascade beer to date.
