4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: APR 10, 2010 750 ml bottle labeled as The Oak Podge at Churchkey in DC. ABV listed as 9%, which makes me think this is a separate beer from the Bourgogne Barrel, but I haven’t tried that one, so can’t say for sure. Poured (by Greg the beer manager) with a massive tan colored head that settled quickly and left nice lacing. Aroma had notes of licorice and caramel candied apples. Taste had emphasis on the malts with a subtle background of wood, dark cherries and figs. Long lasting finish was both dry and mildly bitter. Best beer of the night.

Tap. Deep brown body with a small tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, woody notes and red wine. Slightly sweet flavor that ends up dry and quite sour too. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. A very nice Impy but maybe the red wine is too dominant. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Too much going on here besides what I like in an impy. Slightly acidic it seems - the berry component taken too far in this oak aged version. Almost funky, with the dark roast stout part an afterthought.

I enjoyed this beer, but stout’s are just not my thing really. I’d love to drink this once again, but would not especially go and search for it. Just a decent beer.
