On tap at the Bier Stein, Eugene.

Deschutes says this has been aged in both bourbon and wine casks. This is a beer of tobacco, dark fruits, bourbon, and some hoppiness. The nose is heavily bourbon, as the bourbon barrel aging seems to have mostly defeated the wine barrel effects.

Overall, it's terrific stuff. Deschutes should bottle this, and put it in their regular bottled rotation, alongside Abyss, Mirror Mirror, and other masterpieces.
