Lucky to score a 12oz pour of the 2005/06 into a tear drop @ Bier Stein... 6 year old Mirror Mirror, umm, yes please.
A - Pours a hazy burnt orange w/ 1 finger beige head that fades quick to a ring and slick, no lace, has legs though, and the carbonation is rolling up the glass.
S - Smells of big sweet malts, toffee, caramel, sweet alcohol, dark dried fruits, light spiciness, light chocolate, light vanilla and oak. Oxidized.
T - Big toffee and caramel tastes, chocolate, fruits/dates & raisins, spicy alcohol, oxidized/sherry notes as well.
M - Medium/full body, firm, but not intense, bitterness, sweet, spicy, coats the entire mouth, alcohol is there and warms, but isn't harsh or hot at all.
O - Awesome. I love a good English BW, and this one takes the cake for sure. Little oxidized, but what do you expect from a 6 year old beer? Big malts, smooth, alcohol is nice, bitterness isn't tongue scraping. Oakiness is present but not dominant. Another score for Deschutes.
Serving type: on-tap
