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!

Huge thanks to boboski for sharing this one with all of us at the Orlando gathering.

Pours a dark golden body with a small, ruddy head. Aromas of wood, candied fruits, vanilla, yeast, some spice. Flavor is dominated by the wood notes, with some funkiness and spice coming to play as well. Finish is crisp, medium length and pretty dry. No sense really of the high ABV. Nice brew.

Dark brown color - thin tan head that quickly dissipates. Aroma of wood, coffee, warm bread and yeast. Flavor is deeply malty, with notes of coffee, smoke, whiskey, oak and a hint of apples. Nice chewy/earthy body. Finish is strong and clean.

750ml bottle, 2009 vintage, 600 cases bottled. Oak aged ale poured a dark amber brown with slight tan head. The aged feel is blended with fruity wheat beach-wood notes. Some dry sweet bitterness in the finish.

Bottle: Pours dark with a huge fluffy tan head that sticks around. Aroma is apples, light fruits, mild wood, very slight hay, slight smokey bacon, and a little funky yeast. Flavor is smoked meat, wood, mild chocolate, mix of dark and light fruits, mild belgian yeastiness. As it warms a nice cocoa flavor comes through. With some of the head it is has a full and creamy palate. A lot of flavor yet it holds back just enough to still be smooth and drinkable.

Bottle. Dark brown. Aroma and taste of dark fruit, caramel, lots of oak barrel, some bread yeasty notes. Light carb, a little syrupy but clean overall mouthfeel. Really great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a dark brownish red in color. A decent half inch of head on the pour, but that doesn’t last. Decent amount of carbonation forming in a ring atop the beer. Smell is heavenly. Dark cherries, plum, oak, vanilla, and some light bourbon. Taste is incredible. More of the dark fruit there with the barrel aging complimenting everything quite well. A definite sipper, but that’s the way this beer should be. Great beer.

This is one of the most amazing BSA’s ever, but it has the body and intensity of a imperial stout. The nose is carmel like and it has some spice. I never want the flavor to end, it has light and dark fruits with toffee and this foamy carbonated finish that kills you with mocha and chocolate. The booze is well masked with the exploding flavor and hoppy bite that stings your tounge like a bee. I personally like the oak and mild smokey finish that sticks to your palate. AMAZING!!

My favorite in some time,but haven’t had that many lately. Dark brown/mahogany. Nice thick,foam. Aromas,are well integrated with each other. Lots of oak,vanilla,yeast. Malt aromas are of dark fruits,and sweet aromatic malts. This just glides down the throat. Lightly acidic,dark fruit,sweet malty,flavors. Finish is dry,but soft with flavors of oak,wheat,and mild hops. Overall,absolutely,drinkable,and one I wish it was easier to keep around.
