Day #314 – Deschutes The Stoic

November 11, 2011

I realized that I haven’t reviewed many beers of the following style, and I was very fortunate to stumble across this one at the Saucer.

Deschutes The Stoic

This beer comes from Deschutes Brewing Company out of Bend, Oregon. It is classified as an Abt/Quadrupel and has a daunting 11% ABV! This beer is reported to have been brewed with pomegranate with 16.5% being aged in oak wine barrels and 16.5% being aged in oak rye whiskey barrels.

Tap at the saucer. Pours a clear copper orange color with a frothy white head.

Aroma is peanut brittle, wood, white wine and grapes with a slight sweetness.

Flavor is sweet Belgian fruit and yeast, brown sugar, wood and a bit of spice. There is a nice warming tingle on the finish that makes this very good, just watch yourself on this one!!
