Tmoney99 (10590) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 15, 2014
Bottle shared at Natifest ’14. Poured a dark copper color with a moderate frothy tan head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy complex roasted malt, earthy dark fruit aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy dark fruit sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet and small alcohol burn finish of moderate to long duration. This is a solid beer.

On draft. Muddy brown with a tiny bit of off white head around the rim. Malty smells, bready, caramel, brown sugar, savory, barrel. Sweet caramel, raisin bread tastes, vanilla, plum, cinnamon, a little alcohol burn. Good rich sweet flavors with some barrel character. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

shigadeyo (3006) - Harrison, Ohio, USA - AUG 2, 2014
8/02/2014: Deschutes Mirror Mirror (2014 Reserve)... Attractive shiny copper color with a beige crown (not that anybody really cares). Sugary and malty; sweet, but not cloying; and bit candy-ish with just enough bite in the finish to keep it from being overly sweet. Honestly, this beer need 1-3 years of aging; some oxidation would do wonders for this beer.

Bomber at NF14 - malty toasted Booze. Sweet. I’m aging this so I can’t wait to try it again when it tastes better. Nutty aftertaste.
