22oz bottle thanks to Rick. Medium amber pour, clear body, small beige head. Old musty, malty aroma. Taste follows and is a bit underwhelming, malty, but flat and bland. Some of the wooden barrel notes come through. Maybe good in its own right, but doesn't stand out in a lineup.

Lucky enough to snag a bottle while in Bend at the brew pub. Really good stuff, I wasn't sure what to expect, but it poured a rich amber color with a nice cream colored head that stuck around for a short time. Nose is great, some cherries lead the way with rich sweetness such as caramel and toffee. A bit of spice in there as well. Really great flavor, some plums, cherries and raisins. A bit of spice, maybe some light tobacco flavor and just a hint of tartness from the brett. The mouthfeel is what makes this beer exceptional, medium bodied, but nice tight carbonation with a lingering dryness that is quite nice. Happy to have snagged this little gem. It's like the dissident, but a little smaller and not as sour. A really nice drinking beer for 9ish %. Happy to have this one in the books.
