Brown pour with a nice head. Nose is interesting, big toasted oak. Taste is less interesting - not bad, but oak and wheat seems to need something else in there.

Good job on style, comes together pretty well but a little light on palate. Light prune and citrus with some floral hops. Pours red with good head and lacing. Finishes with some sweetness. Very faint hint of smokey oak barrel. Tap at Churchkey.

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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
[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.
