A Note on This Beer
If you’re envious of your buddy’s barrel-aged beer collection or you’ve been eyeing photos of vintage beers online, today’s brew will kick off your cellar with a BING! BANG! POW!
There’s no need to wait years for a brew to mature to silky-smooth perfection when you can snag today’s 2016 Vintage Collage #2 Barrel-Aged Vanilla Caramel Strong Ale.
Collage is such a fitting name for this artistic blend of whipped white frosting, honey roasted peanuts, coffee cake, and saltwater taffy that expands over your taste buds. It’s a bold, boozy brew with vast layers of flavor derived from cask-aging alchemy.
Cellaring for several years brings out even more oaky, vanilla-caramel depth!
A boisterous 14.3% ABV has been tamed by time — it’ll still warm your belly, but take caution! It’s easy to lose track of how much you’ve imbibed due to its deceptively smooth body.
Deschutes has been personally aging this 4-year-old collaboration with Hair of the Dog and they just granted us access to their climate-controlled cellars for a taste! Lucky us, and lucky YOU!
This bottle will be one of the stars of your collection, whether you’re just starting out or you’ve been cellaring for years — it comes from two of the most senior and well respected breweries in the Pacific Northwest.
