750ml bottle care of Elise. 2012 Project. Deep murky grey dark brown-red, almost purple tints. Initial head fades out but the sides stay bubble thanks to the lively carbonation bubbles ever-rising. Sort of harsh acetone-vinegar sourness. Some pleasant sour cherry tones. Leathery bourbon caramel...mild, but adds some nice depth. No finesse in the sour, just hits you over the head. This beer is probably best in 5 oz samples...in no way sessionable, sort of a task, albeit an enjoyable task, to drink. A great concept, Cascade just doesn’t succeed in subtlety.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy dark brown, pretty dark. Tan head. Aroma of dark fruits and sourness. Hint of cherry too. Don’t get bourbon barrel, but sour. Taste is tart, feel it in my jowels. Lots if tart cherries, abv is well hidden. Get some sweetness in the taste too. Really nice balance of sour and sweet.

Bottle share thanks to beechner224. Dark brown pour with light brown creamy lasting head. Big sour, acidic, cherry, oaky, vanilla aroma. Sour, tart, lots of cherry notes, light roasty malt character, more of the barrel ones through here too. Tasty, well balanced, nice.

(bottle - corked & caged 750 ml - 2012 vintage) Dark copper pour with a thin tan head. Sour and tart funk in the aroma with a hint of cherries and sweetness. Nice sour and tart flavor at the start that gives way to a sweet fruity and cherry middle and you can definitely get hints of the barrel. Not so sour that it overpowers and really does well with the sweetness.

Tonkun (756) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 24, 2014
Tap at brewery. Dark reddish brown pour. Port wine, cherries, leather, oak, caramel. Medium to full body. Well balanced where it is not too oaky and you can actually feel the cherries and other fruit. Very nice

vyvvy (3876) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUN 22, 2014
On tap at the brewpub - Pours dark brown with a tannish head. The aroma has rich cherries, dark caramel, oak, pie filling, oak, pedio / lactic sourness and quick rich and malty. It has a full smooth rich body with really soft carbonation. The flavor begins with rich berries, vanilla, oak, bourbon, tobacco, dark fruits, berries, toffee and caramel. The finish has lots of malt, barrel and fruit. Really nice.

Daniel719 (105) - Safety Harbor, Florida, USA - JUN 15, 2014
Pours a very nice dark red. Smell is all bourbon and cherries. A tiny hint of oak. Pretty awesome. Taste is pretty tart. Bourbon mostly in the front and back end. Just enough cherry. Overall a great beer.

tiong (3611) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUN 8, 2014
Draught @ Cascade, Portland, OR

Pours dark reddish brown with a smooth head. Aroma of wood, oak, bourbon, vinous notes, tart berries and yeast. Taste is tart, sourish and woody with loads of bourbon, berries and red wine. Finish is malty, tart and woody with some oak, bourbon and berries. Quite complex and tasty.
