Pours beautiful reddish brown. Aroma is massive dark fruit molasses and boozy. Taste is lots of bourbon Barrell booziness and that fruity molasses. Really quality stuff

not being a huge fan of Belgian style beers, this is one of the best I’ve had. Smooth, complex, nice carbonation, hides the high abv dangerously well

Draft at Bricks. Pours ruby brown with no head. Nose is plum and oak. Taste adds vanilla and vineous notes. Alcohol comes through the nose in the aftertaste.

On tap 10oz pour into tulip. Minneapolis. Pours cloudy brown with slight red hue. Aroma is brown sugar, fig, alcohol, a little woody. Taste is sweet, dry mild bitterness in the finish. Full bodied, soft carbonation, long finish. For a quad this was pretty decent. Sweeter than I was expecting. Something was a little off- could have been the wine barrel aging.

I really appreciated the extra oak and whiskey notes in this one; the original needed it. Love that they realized an opportunity to continue refining an already-released beer and went with it. Sweeter and a bit drier, perhaps a tinge of heat. Very tasty; better than the original.

thesherm (1) - BALDWINSVILLE, New York, USA - DEC 30, 2014 does not count
This was a delicious first try of a Deschutes Brewery offering and I wasn’t disappointed. The pomegranate molasses is pleasant on the palate with an almost vanilla fume and gives a nice contrast to the slight maltiness. Essence of funk in there too.
