This beer is no longer being produced by the brewery.
A little bit of oak a lot of roast, coffee, toffee, chocolate. Booziness has mellowed being an 8 yr old beer. Very nice, a bit more roasted than more modern equivalents.Earned the Cheers to Independent U.S. Craft Breweries (Level 2) badge! Earned the American Craft Beer Around The World badge!

Bought at the brewery in Bend , Oregon by a friend last month. Everything about it is great. Not a fan if molasses ir licorice but I assume time muted the flavors. Not mad at all and i look forward to another from DeschutesEarned the Hopped Up (Level 4) badge! Earned the Photogenic Brew (Level 19) badge! Earned the 2X (Level 13) badge!
Catch up - unreal. The well aged nectar flows and warms and as you sip the dark fruits, deep resinous colors and tastes set in as you imagine sip a high end brandy which forms so well with a steak and potato day. Like the brandy barrel aged one in fact
