Fairly viscous deep mahogany/brown pour with a small off-white head. Slightly syrupy body that coats the mouth with raisins, dates, figs, prunes, rummy notes, deep, dark chocolate, and a finish that is quite bittersweet. Flirts with cloying, at times, but avoids it. Another Excellent effort from Deschutes.

On tap at Saraveza on November 2nd, 2017.

L: Opaque deep brown. Almost black, but ever so slightly ruddy.
S: Pumpernickel
T: Like a sweet vanilla latte made by a master.
F: Thick, almost milkshake like, though that is clear hyperbole. Coats the mouth, and and has a very subtle effervescence.
O: Three years of age has done the old bastard good. If you're in Portland run, don't walk. You shan't regret it.
