Sour woody aroma. Mid brown coloured strong in alcohol fruity and sour with a cherry flavour. Warming whisky malt finish. b3shine (9137) - Indiana, USA - DEC 5, 2013
750 ml bottle to snifter (shared by DrSilverworm). Looks good; a cloudy dark brown with beige lacing. Smells solid; tart with notes of cherry, oak, vanilla, bourbon, and spices. Tastes like it smells with a nice mouthfeel. Good beer. kraddel (8861) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - OCT 2, 2016
At Borefts 2016. thnx for sharing,everyone ! Pours black, smell is sweet, bit bourbon, OK. Taste is sharp, sour/sweet, roasty malts. Almost like a cherry aspect. OK, which is surprising for a sour stout, yet I still don’t get the fuzz and don’t think the combo is a nice thing. nimbleprop (8743) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 31, 2010
Curtis, the brewer, was kind enough to allow me to sampled this on tap from the keg room at the brewery. This beer is completely legit. Pours an opaque, deep brown with a very frothy off white head. The nose is really good, sour mash, lactic acid, big vanilla, whiskey, brown sugar, licorice, chocolate, dried fruits. Flavor was just as good, starts with a lactic tartness which is rounded out by a mellow sweetness, oak, vanilla beans, light Belgian chocolate, some light spice. Full bodied, roasty, tart finish. So happy I had a chance to try this, it’s very exceptional.

So there you are, tubby. Look like a bucket of lard on a bad day. You baby gorilla. Why don’t you work in a zoo, and stop bothering people? Got a call yesterday from Baskin Robbins. They said that they’re down to only five flavors. You’re swelling up as I talk to you. BuckeyeBoy (8455) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 11, 2011
750ml bottle Pours out darker brown topped with a tan head. Aroma was of bourbon, oak, vanilla, pit fruit, and funk. Taste was much as the aroma with the bourbon leading the way. I have to say I was really excited to try this as soon as I heard about it. When we opened it what a letdown, but as it sat it opened up and made a comeback. Unfortunately it didn’t live up to my hopes.

Bottle provided by CaptainCougar. Thanks! Poured a really nice brown color with a tiny tan head. Aroma was sour notes, a touch of vanilla. Flavor was vanilla oak, with some bourbon and a touch of sour notes to it. A nice melding between a sour and a bourbon barrel aged ale. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - FEB 5, 2011
750, corked and baled. Pours nearly black with a tightly bubbled surging tan head. Big sharp bourbony nose with roasty malt character and tons of vinegary lacto. What a fantastic combination. This is definitely a sum of its parts effort, as is the mid-palate. Some things play well together, some things don’t, and then some things just crystallize perfectly into an ideal amalgamation and really jump out at you. This is one of the latter. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toasty, roasty, vinegary, bourbony, and there’s no real reason why these things should work together as well as they do. But they do. Long tart lactic finish. Very satisfying and skillfully executed beer. Hugely ambitious concept and the results really shine--as always with Cascade, the bottles really dazzle too. Doesn’t show the booze. Until you stand up. Then you show the booze.
