4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted on 9/30/12 from a corked and caged 750mL bottle sent to me by Chris, big thanks. Pours deep, dark brown with a bit of a red velvet tint, and a thin brown head that slowly recedes to thin lace. The nose is sour with loads of chocolate malt, maple, vanilla, and caramel bourbon, and just a touch of roast. The flavor is a bit more sour up front, moving to all of the chocolate, maple, vanilla, and caramel barrel aged notes, and finishing with some roast. The body is full and tannic with average carbonation and a very long sour and bourbon finish.

Dégustée chez Alexandre Mathieu. Cheers! Servie trop froide, la bière s’est lentement réchauffée pour révéler un côté complexe et agréable. Nez typique de Cascade, de bourbon chaud, de bois, d’épices et de sucre roux caramélisé. En bouche le liquide est extrêmement acide. La gorge me brûle tant le liquide est vinaigré. Beau parfum de vanille qui prend le dessus avec la température qui augmente. Trop intense pour moi, cette bière va trop loin dans toutes les directions à la fois.

750 shared and poured a medium brown with no head. the aroma was a mild sourness, dark fruit and what I called an almost rootbeer flavor. but much more complex. lots of nose power. the flavor was so smooth and mild. but the flavor in general was complex. plenty of sour and dark fruit and total yumminess. second favorite from cascade...

Bottle served in a tulip. 2009 vintage, opened in early 2015 for a special occasion. Big pop and then it starts to gush. Poured quickly without loosing a drop. Lovely murky mid-dark brown pour with a decent sized light brown head. Monster nose: Vanilla, bourbon, dark fruit and heavy cinnamon. Also somewhat floral. Medium plus sour and mildly sweet on the palate. Medium body, decent carbonation, and a tart, light tannic finish. Complex, powerful and warming. Incredible showing especially considering it’s age.

2011 bottle to glass. Bday gift from my brother. Pours a deep brown color with a fizzy tan head. Aroma is tart, sweet molasses, touch of bourbon, vanilla. Flavor has a solid tartness up from that quickly transforms into a molasses and candy sugary sweetness. Faint smoky Bourbon in the finish. Unique. Quite tasty.

Bottle share. Clear deep red brown. Big legs. Aroma of bourbon, bright sour cherry and raisin. Taste is full sweetness and a sour balance. A tingly finish from booze, but not unpleasant.

Sampled at the Kick Starter event at the Humboldt Cider Company to help fund their new tasting room. Pours near black with a light tan head. Nose of funk and oak, along with some fruit and chocolate. Full body, Rich mouth feel. Flavor is a lot of wine barrel and the sourness is very present and this carries over to the finish. I really liked this.
