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!

The oak flavor while not overbearing is what really make this beer special to me. Faint notes hit you on the nose and there is a bit of a woody back taste that really left me looking forward to the next sip. At this point it will have some age on it, but at 10% I think if will have held up just fine and will only grow smoother with age.

2005 bottle. Ruby-brown pour with lots of sediment. Smells of oak, whiskey, touch of citrus and brown sugar and lots of alcohol. Tastes of soy sauce, whiskey, vanilla, spices, prunes and tons of alcohol. Medium body with a strong alcohol burn. Good beer but too much whiskey and alcohol presence made it a bit tough for me to enjoy.

2005 Bottle, sampled at Woodshop Quad. Pours a clear reddish-brown with a white ring. Aroma of malt, dark fruits, sugar and pine. Rich taste, of malt, brandy, sugar, dark fruits, and wood. Lingering rich sweetness. Very nice.

Pours a dark brown. Has a woody, dark fruit and caramel aroma. Taste is similar to the aroma but with some stout features of coffee and a little chocolate.

4 oz. sampler at Sunset. It’s hard for me to give this beer a fair rating. You can tell it’s a high quality brew, but it just tasted too much like cough drops for me to enjoy. Otherwise, iit was a good strong wheat ale..

Poured a dark clear brown color with a light brown head. Very oaky aroma with a little malt and light sourness. Also a little sweetness and a little alcohol burn.

On tap at The Greeks in Narberth PA. Pours a dark brown/black with dark white head. Smoked aroma with some maple syrup. Mouthfeel is thick and almost syrupy. Taste is dark and smooth. Less smokey than the nose but full nonetheless. Pete, oak, dark malt and liquid smoke predominate. An overall I excellent beer. I really liked it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Reviewed 8/19/2009 (Bottled January 2008): Pours a very dark brown colored body, with a big creamy tannish color head. Lasting. Fruity aroma, some dark fruit, and some lightish fruit too. Some fig, and some alcohol too. Some roasted notes, and maybe some chocolate. Very strong aroma, kind of funky. Roasty, woody taste. Some wood taste, probably the oak barrel. Some smoke too. This could age in taste very well. Very carbonated. Not sure I really like the taste. A little harsh now, maybe in a few months or years it would taste better.

Bottled July ’09. Poured into my Duvel tulip glass. A-Body is a nearly opaque dark brown-cola color. Pours with a 2-3 finger foamy off-white head that fades quickly to a thin collar. Leaves minimal lacing behind in the glass. Bubbles can be seen steadily rising to the top. S-Impressions of anise, cola, and root beer come through initially with a slight spicy yeast overtone. Phenols can be detected at a moderate strength. T-Much like the nose the overall impression this brew gives off initially is that of root beer, anise, and cola. A wet oak presence is minimal in the background. After a few sips a spicy belgian yeast comes through and blends well with the initial flavors. The finish is spicy and sweet with the slightest hints of molasses and oak coming through as well as a moderate alcohol warmth. P-Medium to high tingly carbonation and a light to medium weight body. Body is wet and yeasty but there is a slight phenolic consistency as well. O- This is a great beer overall. ABV still somewhat detectable but not out of check in any way, shape or form. I wish there was a bit more oak barrel presence as well. Overall I think this is a great brew and great example of BSDA and measures well against the greats of the style.
