COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Late this year we plan to release a second beer in the Barrel Aged series... a dark, 10% wheat beer. We have been aging a portion of the beer in New American Medium Toast Oak, and a portion in Stainless steel. We will then blend the beers to taste, and bottle condition. The beer will have spent over 6 months aging in the oak and steel at the brewery!

Pour on tap, dark reddish brown pour with tan head, aroma brought lots of dark fruit, toffee, caramel, hints of earth, lots of spice into oak, bourbon, slight cocoa almost in there into some rich red fruit notes. Taste is a mix of oak, vanilla, toffee and molasses into some dark fruit, red fruit, some nice spice into more caramel notes, finishing sweet, slightly spicy.

4/23/2014. 750 ml. corked and caged bottle. pours dark brown with a tan head. Yeast, roasted malt and dark fruit aromas. Flavors are a bit sweet, almost like brown sugar with alcohol, fruit and spices showing through. The oak mellows it out a bit. Overall an outstanding beer.

troyc (2432) - Illinois, USA - APR 14, 2014
[Bottle] Deep brown color with a lasting cap of foam on top. Oak, vanilla, dark fruits and alcohol notes in the aroma. Sweet breads, toffee, chocolate, vanilla and mild phenols in the taste. Very noticeable alcohol throughout. Not getting too much wheat malt in here. The oak is pleasant, but hot alcohols distract from what this beer could be.

Draft. Pours black/brown with slight brown head. Booze is present in the nose along with some oak and earthy elements. Taste is a bit spicy - getting some heat from the alcohol, spiciness from the belgian yeast, stone fruits, rich dark malt. Pretty heavy on the palate.

On tap at Y-Not, Chesapeake, VA. Dark brown cola-like pour with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of sweet caramel, peat, smoke, and wet oak. Taste of light toffee, brown sugar, tobacco, oak, and faint smoke. Finish is surprisingly clean, not sweet, and not too heavy or cloying. Nice beer!
