2011 Project 750mL bottle. Aroma has a light acidity with a moderate dark fruit character with notes of cherries, berries, plums and prunes. Medium light oak note. Some residual notes from the malt, mostly toasted bread, toffee and caramel. Pours a cloudy brown with a thin tan head that quickly recedes to the edges where it disappears. No lacing and sheets of alcohol. Flavor is fairly tart with a moderate fruit presence of cherry, berry, prune and raisin. Some residual malt notes of chocolate, caramel and toffee. Medium oak notes and low bitterness. Moderate spice note that works well with the beer - cloves, allspice and other fall spices. Light alcohol spice in the finish that is hidden by the acidity and spices. Some sweetness upfront. Mouthfeel is medium full bodied with medium carbonation. Low to medium low astringency and medium alcohol warmth. Overall an alright beer with a clear sourness. The spices work well with the beer, but I think I might enjoy it more without the spices. As I have said in other reviews, I am not a big fan of dark sour beers (though I seem to continue to buy them). Interesting, but not one of my favorites.

Amazing sour Porter with wood and fruit flavors. Similar to Russian River Consecration which is also amazing.

Bacterial (2811) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - MAR 26, 2014
I was lusting after this beer for a while. Being a microbiologist I simply had to have this beer, clearly named after the bubonic plague, caused by the bacterium Yersinia pestis. One of the most complex Cascade sours I have tasted so far. Brown pour with a tan head. Slight bourbon nose and lots of sour notes (acetic and lactic). Some sweet malt moves quickly to very sour, fading into a nice sour bourbon finish. Well done, Cascade!

on draft at EBF, another stellar beer from cascade. Sweet rich flavors are attacked by a piercing tartness. The barrel blends it all together into great complexity. Amazing stuff.

Medium brown pour. Aroma is mild sour like sweet tarts. Pretty sweet with minor sour flavor. Good but expensive.
