COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
(Wild Oats No. 3 • 9.9% alc/vol) Screamin’ Beaver (Oak Aged Double IPA) is an amped-up version of our Beaver•River I.P.Eh., Beau’s award-winning, extra-hoppy spring seasonal. This monster weighs in at 9.9% alc./vol. and 99 IBUs, and has been dry-hopped and aged on oak. Despite the intensity of malt and hop character, this beer is still incredibly drinkable and nicely balanced. Screamin’ Beaver was designed and first brewed in 2010.

600 ml bottle from the brewery via Lubiere, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear deep copper with a large, orange-tan head. Aroma: Quite sweet and malty, somewhat fruity, a bit savoury/brothy, pine/resin and vaguely citrusy hops, big rich caramel/toffee and treacle, slightly peppery with maybe a touch of a barfy, infected note, a touch of floral hops too. Palate: Medium+ body with velvety effervescence. Flav.: Very malt-forward with lots of brown sugar, slightly burnt, bright fruitiness, some pine/resin and citrus, a bit floral, vaguely fruity, a bit of booze; lightly sweet with disappointing bitterness and a slightly boozy, fairly malty, slightly harsh finish.

This beaver is screaming for more hops.

Pour a maple syrup brown with an ugly offwhite bubbly head that fortunately receeds into nothing but a small rim that doesn’t leave much lacings. Aroma is composed of a little hops and a lot of malt sweetmess. Taste is somehow bitter but with a malty sweetness to match. The balance is a little too much toward malt for my likings but it is still quite drinkable and not cloying. Not getting much barrel aromatics/flavors but it does feel different from a classic DIPA so there must be something I’m missing in there. Not bad, not great.

[bottle at BJCP study session] Tangerine (Pacific Gem) aroma that’s a bit creamy. Almost clear, dark orange-amber under a tawny, off-white head. Creamy butterscotch flavour that is very bitter and salty with hops: tangerine and spicy. Medium body, medium carbonation, moderately bitter finish.

Solid amber colour. Big white head. Sweet aroma of oak. Very sweet and oaky.

rejtable (1787) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 5, 2013
Pours dark orange with some light head, not much lacing. Nose is biscuits and earthy hops. Aromas are earthy hops, caramel malts and some citrus in the finish. Tastes are medium sweet and medium bitterness. Mouth is medium body with lively carbonation. Having oak version, but not picking up much from oak. Decent beer.

Aroma of piney citrusy hops, oak, nuts, toast. Beautiful red-brown colour. Taste like the aroma but frankly too sweet. The alcohol content is well hidden, however - just warming. Could have been a contender.

From the "Best of Beau’s" 4-pack for 2012 - dark and heavy like apple cider. Copper beige head. A sweet, fruity aroma that tricks you, or at least tricked me. The bite of the hops hidden by the sweetness and oak flavour and bite lingers quite long at the back of the mouth. If opening a bottle, let it breath a it. Not quite my thing, but a pretty layered, full flavoured brew for Beau’s. Oh and the 10% alcohol is accurate. As a light weight, felt like I had taken a few shots of tequila.

Pours an orange, copper color with thin head. Aromas of Oak, caramel, grass and nuts. Oak, nuts, pine, grass and caramel on the palate. Smooth, a touch of bitterness and lots of oak on the finish, best beer from beau's yet! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Part of their "Best of Beau’s" 4-pack for 2012. Nice to try one of the early Wild Oats Series (No. 3) and with a 9.9% ABV. this time. Pours a clean copper colour with a beige head, decent retention and dirty lacing. Interesting hoppy nose with warm caramel malt and alcohol. Hints of tropical fruits and nuts even. No burning at all in the mouthfeel (is this really a 10% ABV. brew ??). Goes down too smoothly... ha, ha. Nice warming taste of grapefruits, caramel, with notes of nuts, wood and hop dryness. This is quite good for a cold winter and the 99 IBUs balance things very well.

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 25, 2012
Best of 2012 Beaus 4 pack. Dark orange, medium sized orange tinted head. Strong alcohol and sweet malt aroma. Taste is quite good - really strong sweet malt taste, a ton of booze, and a ton of earthy hops. Sweet and thick, yet really easy to drink. This was very good and the whole 4 pack was very solid. Glad to get a chance to try Beaus one offs, well done folks!
