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 donít, 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 thereís 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. Doesnít show the booze. Until you stand up. Then you show the booze.

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. BMan1113VR (7931) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 19, 2010
On tap at Stone Sourfest. Pours with a tan head over a brown body. Aroma is a bit buttery, bourbon, and dark fruits. Taste is dark fruits, a bit of raspberry, bourbon and incredibly decadent. Light carbonation.

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 donít get the fuzz and donít think the combo is a nice thing. BuckeyeBoy (7512) - 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 didnít live up to my hopes.

750mL bottle, 2009 vintage. Opened with a loud pop, and it gushed a bit.. poured medium-deep brown with a tall beige head that fizzled down quickly. The aroma picked up sour oak, bourbon, and leathery notes over sour coffee and licorice notes.. sweet roast came through in a nice way.. spicy on the back of the nose with more bourbon barrel. The flavor found tart oak, lightly metallic barrel, and some tannins on the tip of the tongue, with sweet, roasty black malt and vanilla following.. tasty bourbon and lactic notes laced throughout.. finished with great balance between the porter and the barrel.. and some belly warmth. Medium-bodied with fizzy carbonation.. moderate-plus overall sourness, and it was always in balance.. really tasty stuff! Sledutah (7487) - Utah, USA - JAN 15, 2014
