Black Mirror – The first of Deschutes Brewery’s Reserve Series lineup for 2019 will be released this week.  Black Mirror, an American Style Black Barleywine, is deceptively unique and with its dark color and rich full body. Aged in 98% bourbon and 2% American oak barrels for eleven months, Black Mirror comes directly from the barrel with notes of chocolate, coconut, vanilla, whiskey, toffee, and dried fruit.

The rich malt character brings a subtle sweetness to balance the hint of oak in this robust beer. “Black Mirror is a tip of the cap to Deschutes Brewery’s Mirror Mirror, it’s a dark version aged in bourbon barrels as opposed to wine barrel aging in Mirror Mirror,” said Assistant Brewmaster Ben Kehs.

Black Mirror is 13% ABV with 45 IBUs and available in 22oz hand-dipped wax bottles and draft everywhere Deschutes is sold.
