Special Tap: Deschutes Not the Stoic

Some may remember the coveted release of The Stoic in 2011, but this is Not the Stoic. No, unlike the Stoic, this is certainly Not made with Belgian candy, beet, and date sugars, as well as a wallop of pomegranate molasses. It's definitely Not the product of careful sequestering partially in rye whiskey barrels, partially in pinot noir barrels. It's Not clean or tangy, Not boastful of its rich caramel and stone fruit flavor, Not weighing in at a deceptively sweet 12%abv, just as we're Not tapping this on August 20th.
