COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This NW-style sour ale is a special treat from the blenders. We took a 20 month old Thai cinnamon version of the Bourbonic and aged it a further four months on Bing cherries. Dark cherries, Bourbon and spices greet you in the nose. Big, rich, dark cherries, dates, oak, leather and tobacco dance on the palate. Deep cherry notes, dark fruits and a warming Bourbon flavor finish this off as only the Bourbonic can.

On tap at Cascade, pours a deep dark amber / mahogany with a small tan head. Aroma brings out sour cherries, red wine barrels, bourbon, and wood. Flavour brings out sour cherries, vanilla, bourbon, wood, and vinous notes. Quite woody, with the cherries adding a wonderful complexity. Fairly acidic and vinegary, perhaps more so than the base beer. Great stuff.

04AUG12 - at barrel house. From the live cask. This beer blew my mind. I would pay $25 for 12oz of this, and buy a case. Seriously. Nice and dark brown with cherry hues. Flat appearing. (This beer will get inflated appearance score simply because I feel it deserves it based on the overall experience) The Nose is cherry - sweet, dark cherries. Sherry, oak, vanilla, tawny port, caramel, hints of sour cherries as well. I spent quite a bit of time in the glass of this beer. Then ordered more to share with the wife. I canít articulate the nose on this beer. Flavor was a blend of ruby and 10yr tawny ports, vanilla, cherry, slightly sour, leather, tobacco, tanning oils, slightly toasted sugars. Fuck, I donít know - the stuff you wanna taste - it was here. Full bodied with a viscous finish and velvety feel. Please, make more. Serving type: cask 08-07-2012

douglas88 (5573) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 4, 2014
On tap at the Barrel House. Pours a dark very red brown color with a small white head. I had a big glass of this, subsequently got buzzed quick. A huge nose of cherries, bourbon, rich wood. The flavor is mostly sweet totally natural cherries, vanilla, bourbon, very woody, light base stout elements, some tartness especially tart cherries. Wonderful beer. Superb palate. Overall, the heart of this is certainly the cherries. A beast.

On tap at the barrel house. Dark brown pour with a thick brown head. Aroma is tart cherries, bourbon, some roast notes. Flavor is big and boozy. The tartness plays nicely with the fruit and malt notes. This was an amazing beer. Really nice.

Smurf2055 (1303) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 29, 2012
On tap at the barrelhouse. Pours hazy brown with a finger light brown head. Amazing acidic cherry smell, strong, earth and estery banana. Taste is light up front, but very strong yeast and cherry and an almost vegetable quality toward the finish. Very well done.

madvike (2584) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 12, 2012
Live barrel at the Barrel House - Pours murky brown with no head. Nose is deep and malty, sweet with sour cherry and bourbon sweetness. Taste is big and sweet with lots of sourness and malt. Not too tart, but restrained. Toffee sweetness hinted at on the finish, along with some Smarties tartness and black cherry. Smooth, big body. Itís good, but a little all over the place.

Draft at barrelhouse. Strong bourbon with smooth vanilla and cherry followed by a strong alcohol warming. A little much on the alcohol. But a great barrel and fruit compliment.
