I had this on tap at Hangar 9 in Carbondale, IL and felt lucky to do so. I bought a bottle at Speakeasy Liquors last Spring and I've been aging it for optimal tastification. I look forward to cracking it in a couple weeks, at which point I will re-review. The look and mouthfeel are dynamite, and it was super boozy. By far the best thing I have had from Deschutes.
