95 The Dissident, Deschutes Brewery (OR) 2010 Reserve. 10.5% ABV (9/11)
Deep amber copper color. Vibrant aromas of sour cherry and apple breads and pies and a hint of parmesan cheese with a rich supple, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a long, toasted grain bread, peppery spice and earthy/barky hop -accented finish. Tremendous complexity and richness.
