3.93/5  rDev -6.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

22oz waxed bottle.

Pours deep, clear mahogany that shows brighter amber when held up to light. The head is small and tan, but does stick around as a thin cap for a while.

Aroma is almost like a booze-soaked fruitcake. It's got cherries, apples and raisins with some toasted malts and toffee. There is also caramel, chocolate and molasses with a touch of spices.

The taste is fruity with some more of the doughy malts. Raisins are present with some tart cherries and semi-sweet chocolate. There is more spiciness in the finish with cinnamon jumping to the top.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied with soft carbonation and equal parts sweet and roasted in the finish.

This is a nice and complex winter-style ale with strong fruity notes mixed with chocolate and toasted malts. Good.

Many thanks to mnbearsfan for this want. Check this one off the list.

After I got the wax off (any one have a super easy way for this I'm all ears), it pours a dark mahogany with an inch of caramel head

smells of grapes and raisins and cinnamon cloves, slightly medicinal on the end. Very Belgian Strong Ale

Taste follows with some oak, dark fruits, almost bourbon with some red wine notes. I do detect some of the alcohol, but it's not burning.

A little thin on the mouthfeel, which doesn't necessarily work against this beer. Almost allowed me to sip it a little faster than I probably should have.

Overall another solid offering from Deschutes. I've had the Dissident, and I've got a Mirror Mirror and an Abyss to add to the repertoire. So far so good

This is one of those beers. The kinds you see in the display case of high end expensive goods. The ones with high quality wax that you struggle with to even break into the thing. Yeah, one of those kinds.

Being that this is my pre-birthday celebration, I am a bit drunk anyways. Getting the wax off was like James Franco surgically cutting his arm off in 127 hours. Time seemed to slow down, and insanity pursued.

Thank god those 127 hours were worth the wait.

Deep brown body, with some off white sticky lacing.

The aroma is wonderful, just like something out of a bakery. Dates and raisins, molasses, brown sugar. Cinnamon, apple, oranges, and plenty of tart dark fruits. Very nice, just like a fresh out of the oven warm apple pie. Well balanced.

Dark fruits dominate the flavor, with amazing complexity. Plums, raspberry, prunes, and fresh squeezed white grapefruit. Notes of bitter, earthy, tangy, sweet, spicy, neutral, cloying, and assertive all blend together nicely. The complexity is almost too much at once to describe. The deepness of the fruits, and the very well pronounced earthy malt and floral hop background to support it is truly something to behold.

There is just a whole lot going on here, and the amazing this is my arm is still stuck in between a rock and this is the best beer I've had in a long time.

Now you might not know this about me, but I will say it anyways.

You know, I've been thinking. Everything is... just comes together. It's me. I chose this. I chose all this. This rock... this rock has been waiting for me my entire life. It's entire life, ever since it was a bit of meteorite a million, billion years ago. In space. It's been waiting, to come here. Right, right here. I've been moving towards it my entire life. The minute I was born, every breath that I've taken, every action has been leading me to this crack on the out surface.

It's time to say goodbye now, I'm running out of things to say. Mom, Dad, I really love you guys. I wanted to take this time to say the times we've spent together have been awesome. I haven't appreciated you in my own the way I know I could.

And Deschutes, this is one hell of a beer.

Have wanted to open this one on numerous occasions... Finally said "Screw it, I'll dirnk it myself". Best after date of 1/29/11. Poured from a 22oz. black waxed and capped bomber into a Southampton oversize snifter.

A: Standard pour yields a .5 finger semi-coarse off-white colored head with decent retention. Beer is a clear dark brown. Lacing is spotty and stringy with decent cling. Nice legs too.

S: Nose is very unique. Notes of oak, fresh purple grapes, fresh prunes, fresh plums, cinnamon, brown sugar, and bourbon. Purple fruit abounds. Some sweet spices hide out in the background also. Appetizing and it gives me something to look forward to.

T: Opens brown sugar and prune pulp. Some purple grapes and more brown sugar towards the middle with a touch of molasses and tea leaves. Bourbon hits towards the end providing an accented and sweet finish enhanced by a touch of honey. Finish is sweet iced tea and aftertaste is the same with more molasses and brown sugar. This isn't bad but its not too appetizing either. A strange brew.

M: Medium bodied with low to moderate carbonation. Smooth in the mouth with some lingering bubbles and goes down a bit watery with a touch of heat. Finish is messy with an aftertaste that lingers. A bit thin overall for the style.

O: I'm not sure what to make of this beer but I'm pretty sure that it won't hold up for another 9 years. Body is a bit thin and the flavor is awkward if anything. Worth a try for the novelty of it... I can't recall ever having a beer that taste's like this... but its not worth the effort to age in my opinion.

22oz Bomber. Best After 01/29/11. Bought this over a year ago and have been aging it patiently in the old beer fridge. Poured into Tulip.

Pours a deep dark brownish red. Hard to see any light coming through this one. A finger of beige foam fades away to a medium ring. Some slow cascading carbonation around the edges.

Initial smell is of berries and various dark fruits. Also some vanilla, apple, and cinnamon.

Initial taste mixes sweet malt with vinegary red wine tannins. Taste tilts more towards raisins than the sweet berries on the nose. The red wine/grape juice flavor lingers through the middle accompanied by some biting carbonation and hop bitterness. Getting more of an oaky barrel aged note in the flavor than the nose. (OK, just read that this was aged in Pinot Noir barrels, duh, that explains a lot.). Alcohol mixes in with the flavor near the finish, but isn't overly strong.

Body is quite thick and syrupy, encourages slow sipping.

I like this beer a lot, although the cloying sweetness knocks the score down a bit. It is very much a beer-wine hybrid, much like Dogfish Head Red & White, which is one of my favorites out there.

Shared with my brother "kdiggidy"

A - This was the best part of the beer. Very nice pour into modern day tulip glasses. Great carbonation, mahogany pour that turns dark purple/black (almost the color of root beer) in the glass.

S - Fruity, almost wine-like (obviously).

T - Surprisingly flat on the tongue, lacking in complexity. I had way higher hopes for this beer.

M - Silky smooth.

O - I received this for my 30th birthday and have saved it for a special occasion (pre DLD festivities). As hard as it is to say, this beer did not live up to my expectations. I haven't ruled out the 2020. Sadly, I don't think cellaring would have made much of a difference for this brew. Much love to Deschutes for their ambition/innovation. To each their own - happy drinking everyone!

You have to love a beer that reads “Best AFTER”, that’s right not before. AFTER! That means the beer was release a bit pre-mature in my opinion, but hey who cares. Well lucky for me this beer was opened after the date on the bottle so it was “ready” to drink.

And Ready to drink it was! This beer was almost unlike anything else I have ever had. The thick/sticky mouth feel was a pleasant surprise as the sugars took front and center on the taste. Hints of the dark fruits came across, and everything was followed by a hint of barrel/oak funk. The Funk didn’t overpower but simply complemented the super sugary flavor of this beer.

Very Nice Surprise!

A - Has a huge creamy white head over a deep amber body.

S - Very strong hop aroma with and underlying sweetness.

T - Robust malty flavor well balanced with the hops. Hops are very much there but nowhere near what I thought it would be based on the smell.

M - Lightly carbonated and smooth like many stouts. There is a really great full and creamy body.

O - Very enjoyable. Not a session beer. I really like the flavor of this beer but its not something I want a lot of. One bomber split with my dad was enough.

On Tap

Churchill's Pub & Grille
San Marcos, CA

A deep mahogany that barely lets any light through. A thin tan cap and little lace down the glass.

A very fruity aroma that mostly consists of dark fruits like cherries and figs along with some citrus elements. There's some other sweetness and syrupy aromas as well.

A very sweet taste that follows the nose very closely. Along with the dark fruits and syrupy flavors, there's some bready characteristics along with a very warming sensation from the alcohol and an alcohol flavor like a port or a brandy. Very nice and changing as it warms.

A creamy, syrupy, thick, dessert-like mouthfeel. It's a sipper, but the alcohol is not overpowering.

I think this beer is better than its individual parts would let on. It's a dessert sipper, and a nearly perfect one at that.

Dark brown/maroon color with a light khaki head.

Nose is big rich creamy carmel with sweet undertones of coconut and creamy whiskey.

Mouthfeel is rich, viscous and well balanced.

Flavors follow nose with rich carmel, toffee, sweet creamed coffee and creamy rich whiskey/malty tones. Some cooked stone fruit and cooked banana/clover character.

Finish is creamed bitter coffee. Flavor profile was a bit sweeter in earlier tastings. This remains a very nice drink and likely at its peak now, 4/11.

(22oz bottle). Pours clear dark mahogany with beige head and active carbonation. No real lacing occurring here. Aroma is super sweet reminiscent of hardy candy. Reminds me of some of the Hair of the Dog brews. Taste is very sweet with a bit of hop bitterness. Full bodied with a sticky texture and slightly dry, bitter finish. Decent beer, but not once a decade special.

Bought this the night of Deschutes Base Camp Week at Papago Brewing Company in Scottsdale, AZ on Friday, April 8th.

Dark as night. Not much of a head. Malty and sweet on the nose. So smooth and malty on the palate. A bit of alcohol but it's a welcome flavor. Caramelized sugar and molasses all day. Fantastic beer. I'd recommend it to anyone.

Date: 04/01/2011
Vintage: 2010
Type: 22oz. Bottle
Glass: Tulip

Poured a deep brown mahoghany in color w/ ruby red accents, that produced a 1/2 finger off-white head, that left nice lacing. Aromas of strong grape skin, oak, and earthiness. Taste was vinous grape/wine from barrel aging up front, followed by caramel/toffee, and finishing w/ solid hop bite and a touch of booze. Medium bodied and lush due to appropriate carb. Pretty drinkable brew for 10% ABV, but would recommend sharing.

Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this brew. This one should get much better w/ age as the hop bite will fade and make this more English Barleywine-esque. Will be picking up more bottles of this to age for a few years.

Best after January 29th, 2011 - so let's see what we have now:

Poured from a wax-capped 22oz bomber into my Spirit Sippers snifter.

Nearly opaque, dark old-mauve liquid with a thin soapy smattering of near-platinum-colored foam forming an amorphous cap. Vague lacing and very light tears.

Lovely old-ale like aromas - stewed nectarines, prunes, leather, Oloroso sherry butts, malt, and floral notes.

Dried fruit, wood, esters, nuts, and potent malt lead the flavor profile towards the sweet side. Not as hoppy as a barleywine, not as oxidized as an old ale, though it reminds me in many ways of both. Medium-dry, slightly spicy finish.

Rich, medium-heavy bodied, lightly warming, with moderate carbonation.

Not sure it will stand up to extended aging, but I expect it will become increasingly complex over time. Worth setting down a few bottles to find out...

650mL wax-capped bottle with best after date of 1/29/2011. Pours dark ruby/brown with a tan head that stuck around for a bit. Smells very nice, with sweet malt, brown sugar, hops, and wood. Tastes like a big version of Jubelale! Caramel sweetness, maple syrup, dark fruits, hop bitterness, and woody flavors. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Finish is a bit boozy. Very rich and sweet. Nothing mind-blowing but this is a good, very unique Strong Ale.

334th review on BA
bottle to NB globe
650 ML Best after 1/29/11

App- Dense thick browns with rays of lighter brown jetting out of from the center. Nice developing one finger head. Nice scattered lacing.

Smell- Smells a lot like fruit juice with a lot of booze in it. Could be the pinot aging so i'll go with that. Very grape/cranberry in the nose. A little malty and medicinal but for some reason its growing on me.

Taste- IMHO, this is one of those beers you either love or hate. The grape/fruit flavors will leave a lot of people happy and the ABV will make a lot of people happy but to cross the too might be difficult. I found this to be very tasty and inviting. A nice blend of sweet and malty to blend with the ABV. It had a lot of tannin flavors to it but it worked and it was tasty and a little complex due to its aging.

Mouth- Medium bodied with a low/medium carb level. Slightly sweet with a tad malty aftertaste.

Drink- A sweet malty brew with many big flavors. The balance of the booze with the fruit flavors made this quite enjoyable. I might just have to go find another bottle for an aging of my own.

Poured into a tulip. Dark plum color looks almost black. Decent sized tan head leaves lots of lacing.

The aroma is sweet caramel. Toffee and nuts are also evident.

There is a rich sweetness all around to this beer. The aromas are mimicked well here. There isn't a lot of complexity, but it is very enjoyable as a rich sweet sipper.

The body is heavy and the beer feels nice and smooth (though it by no means drinks smooth a la a macro).

A good beer, but does nothing to separate itself from the pack.

Another wax capped bottle shared courtesy of Andrewinski1. Thanks again! Poured into a tulip. Pours on the lighter side of dark brown (if that makes any sense at all) with about a finger of khaki head. Very impressive, espcially for a ten percent beer.

Mostly fruit in the aroma. Very evident this was aged in pinot noir barrels were as over ripe grapes come through the aroma with a bit of brown sugar. Must grapes in the flavor; again I feel like the noir comes through pretty dominantly. Finishes with a touch of vanilla, but this is a fruit dominant beer in my opinion.

The feel is probably one of the beter things on this. Nice full robust body with soft carbonatino. Overall, a pretty nice offering. A bit heavy and a little boozey but a respectable effort from the folks out west.

I waited to open this beer until well after the "best after" date of 1/29/11. This has been sitting in my cellar since I first bought a few in February 2010 when it was released.

Pours a deep crimson/hazelnut color with a small 1/2 inch beige head that fades to absolutely nothing. Tiny spots of lace randomly left on the glass on the drink down. Smells of dark fruits, brown sugar, toffee, vanilla, oak. Tastes much like the smell with plum, cherry, burnt sugar, toffee. A wine like bitterness on the finish from the barrel aging. Slight alcohol warming in the throat after each sip. Carbonation is light with a medium body. This beer sort of coats the mouth after each sip. Overall, this is a good beer that is a rare treat seeing as it is touted as being only brewed once a decade. I have 3 more of these in the cellar with access to more bottles in the future. I can't wait to see how much better this beer will get with some age on it.

Murky deep brown and some red highlights with thin brown foam with okay retention and no lacing. Chocolate and molasses aroma with hints of peat. Molasses and alcohol taste upfront blending into chocolate and notes of peat. Brown sugar and floral hop finish. Slight lingering bite. Thick and fuzzy with slight syrup mouthfeel.

Tastes almost exactly what a double-Jubelale would taste like. A little less peat than I remember with of course a higher alcohol feel and flavor. Really, I must say I enjoyed Jubelale better than this overall. The flavors were a little clearer and enjoyable. This is still enjoyable from start to finish although I wish I had kept it another year.

Had this when it first came out, and have 3 bottles in the cellar currently. This review was from a bottle a friend brought to my birthday tasting recently, so it was just past the recommended tasting date. Review from notes.

Poured from a waxed dipped 22 oz bottle into a Bruery tulip glass.

The beer pours a deep cloudy mahogany colored brown. A half inch beige colored head rose slightly, then faded to just a ring, with just a slight amount of lacing.

The aromas are quite nice. I mostly pick up on dark fruits, as well as candy sugar with notes of plums, dark cherries, also some pinot and oak notes in there as well.

The flavors in the taste mirror the nose for the most part, and it is less sweet then it was fresh, which is good. Dark fruits on the draw, cherry, figs, with a solid caramel and toffee nuances in the middle. After letting it warm a bit, I also get some grape and vanilla notes as well. The Belgian yeast comes through, but it is not overpowering, which is also good.

The mouth feel is thick, with medium to light carbonation. Still a bit sweeter then bitter, but the aging seems to be helping that balance well.

Overall, I'm glad I still have a few bottles of this "once a decade ale". The 10% will allow it to hold up, and so far in my opinion the graceful aging has helped it so far.

Cellared for a year before enjoyment. Thanks to my friend and Pacific Northwest connection, Carla.

A - Dark and deep purple body that is topped by a nice ripe head of small bubbles and is a medium brown color. Decent stamina dwindles to a firm layer coating the surface.

S - Molasses and anise with a hint of spice.

T - Tasty spiced cocoa and a rich molasses. This is full flavored and leaves nothing out. If you like the American Strong Ales you will definitely like this beverage.

M - The feel is full, thick, sticky, smooth, and in the ending a hinting of coarseness to bring out even a bit more flavor.

~ This is a sensational brew. This is one I wish I had shared with a friend just because I want someone else to enjoy it as much as I am. On the other hand, this leaves more for me. get a bottle, you won't regret it.

Shared with Nikkibrews13. Cheers bro!

A - Pours a hazy amberish brown color with a foamy light tan head that fades quickly.

S - Has a Belgian beer smell, and a slight roasty fruit aroma.

T - Toasty, warming vanilla, roasty fruits and barley. The best way I can describe this taste is a cross between Belgian and Barley Wine.

M - Light-medium mouthfeel. Slightly syrupy, almost chewy.

D - Goes down very smooth for 10%! I think this is an extremely drinkable beer... but I'm still wrestling with what to think of it.
