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.

fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 13, 2013
Bottle from CoOp Bellingham
Beautiful red-amber color with medium sized head. Aroma of vanilla oak and wood, light cookies, light alcohol. Sweet mouthfeel, malt and toffee flavor, good share of oak and vanilla, some whiskey, rather boozy, light fruity and sour touch, pungent.
Personally, it’s a bit messy, not cohesive, not rich, alcoholic, and definitively not worth the extreme price.

saxo (13455) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - JAN 17, 2013
Bottle. Nice head with good duration. Color is dark amber. Aroma and taste are a mix of barrels - ranging from white wine to bourbon, oak and fruits. Funny idea and surprisingly successfull. Slightly acidic. Great experience.
