On tap at Brouwer’s Bigwood. 09 vintage.

Slightly hazy with a small white head and little retention. Amberish color.

Smell is faint, dry and fruity, a bit sweet.

Taste just wasn’t there. Watery and a bit of alcohol burn.

Almost no carbonation, very light bodied.

It was ok at best. This is my first Deschutes that has been a disappointment.

2009 bottle

A: Dull cloudy shade of orange brown with a full creamy head. Good retention.
S: Brown sugar along with some grassy hops. Surprisingly, wine barrel is still evident. For whatever reason I get a sugary strawberry preserves-like aroma.
T: Very mild fruityness - again, strawberry jam, vanilla, and plenty of caramel. Plenty of residual sugar apparent on the finish along with a nice alcohol bite. Very mild herbal bitterness. Overall, a smooth procession.
M: Medium to light for the style, with soft carbonation. Pretty resinous.

After seeing Deschutes had a new barleywine out, I went digging for this and was not disappointed. This bottle was slightly oxidized, but not enough to detract much. Very nice.
