I made it to the 'better after' date!!

This beer is about 1 year old.

What a good looking brew! Garnett, with orangish/red around the edges. Decent lacing and head retention.

Smells wonderful! Raisins, dark fruits(plum, fig) grand marinier, black cherry, english toffee, citrus/earthy hops.

THe taste is sweet initialy with earthy bitterness to end. In the middle we have a symphony of flavors that include brandy soaked fruits, caramel drizzled sweet bread, orange liquer and perhaps a touch of molasses.

Medium full bodied, a moderate amount of small bubbled carbonation give it a crisp texture.

The is easily one of the best American BWs that I've had so far. Ever so complex yet balanced(the key word for any Deschutes beer IMHO) The feel and body are near perfect. The bottle is already 1 year old, i can only dream of what it will become with more time. I better go to the bottle shop...now!
