Draught at Alibi Room, Vancouver
Dark color, near black. Aroma of alcohol, traces of acetic acid or acetone, dark fruits. Full bodied, the elements come together in the taste, chocolate malt with dark fruits, balsamic vinegar, wood astringency, and bourbon oak.
Wonderful.

Batavi (385) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - MAR 26, 2017
Geproefd op Borefts 2016, diepe zwartbruine kleur, met een kleine beige schuimkraag, die snel wegtrekt. De aromas zijn zeer complex en aangenaam, eerst een lichte zurigheid van rode en zwarte bessen, rode wijn, en fruitige balsamicoazijn, aangevuld met eikenhout, pure chocolade, vanille, zachte bourbon notities, licht rokerig, aarde en leer. Het smaakpallet is aangenaam mild zuur en zeer complex. Fruitigheid van bosvruchten, pruimen en dadels, gecombineerd met warmere en aardse tonen van cacao, eikenhout en leer, waarin telkens de zachte bourbon mee verweven is. De alcohol van meer dan 12% is zeer goed verborgen, drinkt opvallend gemakkelijk voor zon zwaar bier, alleen in de afdronk geeft het een lichte warmte mee, met een zachte vanille bourbon notitie. De carbonatie is zacht, de afdronk is subtiel zurig met alcohol warmte. Wat een geweldige eerste kennismaking met Cascade Brewing, dit bier is zo complex en in balans, voor mij een van de beste bieren van het festival.

R4N5H (1111) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 22, 2017
On tap at Oedipus Brewery, Amsterdam on 22-Jan-2016, served in a long stemmed tulip glass. Dark brown with a large off-white head. Aroma of fruit, malt and wood. Full body and soft/medium carbonation. Taste of sour plum, cherry and chocolate. The flavour of the bourbon barrels wraps the fruit with a nice smooth taste. Surprisingly smooth for the high ABV - not as heavy as I would have expected. Pretty good.

Svartvit (512) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 20, 2017
Sampled from draft at OIBF & Borefts 2016 as well as from bottle at Oedipus. Pours a very dark warm brown with a small beige head. Bourbon, cherries, oak, molasses, caramel, roasted malts, vanilla, tart fruits, funk, chocolate, dates, raisins, raspberry. So complex, like a great porter and great sour ale in a perfect blend. Medium sweet and sour. Over medium body, low carbonation.

Iznogud (3699) - CROATIA - DEC 30, 2016
On tap at Borefts Beer Festival, 2016. pours black, small tan head. Malty, fruity, berries, blackberries, plums, dark chocolate, pleasant sourness, vanilla, bourbon, wood, some sweetness. Medium to full bodied. Balanced and incredibly drinkable for the abv. One of the best beers of the festival for me.

monk191 (1949) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 10, 2016
Had the 2009 vintage. Not normally a huge sour fan, but this is pretty good. Pours a dark brown-black with a thin tan head. Smells of strawberry, apple and bourbon. Taste is sweet, lots of bourbon, strawberry and apple, and a tart but not sour finish. Had on tap at Raccoon Lodge.
