COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Deschutes Brewery and Hair of the Dog Brewing join forces to weave The Dissident and The Stoic and Fred and Adam into an artistic collage of cask-aging alchemy. Damn. Beer is fun!

Conflux No. 1 - Collage is the second release in the Deschutes Conflux Series. These beers were brewed in March of 2010. One hundred percent of these beers spent two years aging in a variety of oak barrels: Rye Whiskey, Cognac, Sherry, Pinot Noir, Bourbon, used American Oak, new American Oak and new Oregon Oak.

Less than 200 barrels of this intelligent blend was produced.

Pours a hazed dark mahogany with a tan head. Strong bourbon aroma, vanilla, lots of dark fruits, brown sugar, and quite a lot of alcohol.

gramity (1301) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 20, 2012
Thanks mcberko! Pours a dark, ruby-brown with a fluffy white head, sticky, lingering head. Big time red wine aroma coupled with whiskey. Flavor is also dominated by red wine, whiskey, oak, a little dark fruit sweetness. Also very warming going down, but not overly boozy. Cool collaboration by two superior breweries.

pours a clear amber with a red tint, a small tan head that dissipates, and some lacing. smell is of alcohol that curls the noise hairs, caramel, and some dark fruits. taste is very strong, barley, caramel, and malt. tastes more like a barelywine than a strong ale.

Marheb (1940) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 17, 2012
Rien de particulier ne veut la pôle dans ce cocktail un peu éparpillé. La vanille, les petits fruits, le raisin vert, le tabac parmi tant d’autres, j’ai peine à cibler les saveurs filtrés par l’éthanol. Le côté rustique du vieillissement en baril est très subtil.
