Cascade 2017 Bourbonic Plague

#3 Top 25 beers 2020
Return to List

This is tart stone-fruit forward, with some light malt roast in the background that never quite settles on any of the traditional, familiar flavors. A dry, tannic midpalate and finish would indicate that significant time was spent in wood, taking on the characteristics of previous occupants. The brewery calls this an imperial porter aged in Bourbon barrels with dates and spices. This is a springtime sipper, when there is still a chill in the air but promise of warm weather ahead.
