Out of the bottle from Fred Meyer. Pours extremely dar with a reddish hue. It has a full white head that is slightly creamy. Smells sweet and malty. Taste is very sweet without being overdone. Slightly nutty and roasted taste that I can’t quite place. Very unique and excellent winter beer. I am excited to add 10 Barrel to the list of great winter seasonals in Oregon!

22 oz bottle from Roth’s Sunnyslope Market, in S.Salem.
$3.99. Alc. is 7.0%
Pours a dark slightly murky ruby/amber, lovely thick,bubbly tan head ( about half an inch).
Aroma is very malty..dark chocolate,figs,slightly smokey with some resinous hop.
The taste is similar to the aroma,with the hops leaving a nice after taste.
Nice smooth mouthfeel makes this a quite drinkable strong ale.

Bottle @ The BeerMongers... Poured dark reddish/brown/burgundy with a thick forming, light beige head. Nice floral hops here with a rich maltiness. Thick chewy mouthfeel and dark fruits. Nice drinking winter warmer and hefty booziness was nice. troopie (2351) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - NOV 28, 2010
Draught. Poured dark brown with thick white head. Much lacing. Malty aroma, with something else, like the aroma of a fine unlit Havana cigar. Full bodied flavour, malt, cocoa, and ’n bietjie molasses. Malty finish. I loved this and hope they’ll bottle it. 19Ei8hty (1166) - Washington, USA - NOV 30, 2009
Deep brown body. Hearty malt backbone highlighted by a bevy of lightly toasted and somewhat roasted cereal malt complex. Sweet molasses accents. Very rich grain character.
