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.

GG (2332) - NorCal, California, USA - OCT 31, 2014
12oz bottle - When a brewer sets out to make a style of beer that has such a huge range of variety, being able to make a beer that crosses multiple spectrums is truly an art. I’m not the worlds biggest Deschutes fan...but wowza. What a friggin’ beer. Aroma is chock-full of heavy oak and bourbon, candied dark fruit, port, vanilla, dark brown sugar, some light dill or celery notes, with chocolate and red wine.....huh? Some how with all those aromas, it works. Huge, huge complexity in the flavor with a perfect amalgamation of wine, whiskey, brandy, brown sugar, and toffee. You are hit over the head with flavors and aromas multiple times and you love every second of it. A stunning beer.

Lagerboy (1935) - British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 24, 2014
12 fluid ounce bottle, Best After: 4/30/13. Murky opaque brownish copper, tan foam settles quickly and rings. Aroma of dank bourbon barrel and rich sweet malt. Taste is strong, tart and vinous, boozy and oaky, deep sweet roasted malt, lots of complex whisky/wine barrel flavors. Soft carbonation, medium-full bodied, moderately hopped. Surprisingly smooth and soft for such a high ABV, a pricey experiment. DNFL (Definitely Not For Lagerboys)

wedgie9 (2633) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 9, 2014
From old notes, tasted with Curtis and some friends in Nashville, probably some time near the summer of 2012, from a 12oz bottle, big thanks to SVT for sharing I think. Pours clear amber with a thick off-white head that leaves dense, smooth lace. The nose is perfumed, caramel malt, oaky vanilla, and vinous fruits. The flavor is a touch tart up front with the vinous fruit, moving to the caramel malt and oaky vanilla, very unique. The body is full and sticky with average carbonation and a long sour and malty barrel finish.

kbudd19 (984) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 9, 2014
Bottle. Dark thin red pour with a small layer of tan head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is rich caramel, mild cherry tartness, brown sugar, oak, somewhat port/sherry like. Taste is light sour, somewhat thin, followed by rich malty sweetness, with a slight cherry tart finish. Very nice beer, real mix, of sour and malty goodness.

jkwalking05 (4587) - Arlington, Texas, USA - AUG 24, 2014
12 oz bottle. Brown in color with a small beige head. Aroma is of toffee, prune, raisin, grapes must, cinnamon, vanilla, bourbon, wood, and light berry. Taste is of oak, vanilla, vinous, prune, dried cherry, whiskey and caramel. A little too much going on in the beer. It’s almost like they were trying to make it everything at once, which seems to subtract from the beer’s quality.

RIch and complex flavour with butterscotch, wood, red berries, bourbon, some caramel, red wine and herbal notes. Full bodied and oily mouthfeel. Really soft, aggressive, sweet finish. Very rich and complex in flavour. Great.

jkwood04 (5281) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 19, 2014
12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours deep brown with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of light tartness, some oak and vanilla, a lot of caramel and toffee and hints of chocolate from the malts, some wine and whiskey from the barrels, light notes of dark fruits, and some hints of bitterness. Flavor the same with a great blend of everything. Smoother texture. A really unique beer.
