Collage Conflux #1

Opened this collaboration ale by Deschutes and Hair of the Dog a little too soon! Didn’t see the “Best After 4/30/13” stamp until afterwards. The beer is a collage of both breweries’ beers including The Dissident, The Stoic, FRED and ADAM blended and cask-aged somehow, and released in May of this year; references to Rye Whiskey, Pinot Noir, Cognac, Sherry, and Oak abound. We found it very complex with obvious wine and whiskey aging characteristics, and so much more. I want to find another bottle to cellar, as it will most likely mellow out a bit and taste even better!
