Jubel 2010 - Deschutes Brewery

Pours a crimson tinted mahogany. Sparkling carbonation with a crystallized rim of caramel hued head.

Aromas of blackened cherry and coconut laced plums. Softened with vanilla and brown sugar.

Rich cedar ripened grapes and fiery tannic raisins. Subtle bitter cocoa finish. Smoked sassafras spice and toasted citrus. A bit hot but should become velvety with breathing age. 10%.

Aged in pinot noir barrels for 13 months. Bottle says best after 01/29/11.

Patience is no virtue.
