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.

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

I always like a nice dark IPA. This 99 IBU kicker hides the hops a bit with a malt forward blast of caramel and chocolate. Nice and roasty, with a touch of pine. Long bitter finish. Nice thickish sticky mouthfeel. Surprised it’s not rated higher. At first I was like blah, but then it grew on me quick by the end. Unique for sure. I think I might prefer it to the double mad tom’s even.

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!

Ceramic 750 ml swing-top bottle. Packaged on May 18th, consumed on Sep 2nd. I first tried this beer on cask back in the spring, and honestly didn’t care for it too much - my notes say that I found "more booze than hops" in the aroma and flavour, and that the palate was sweet and sticky, making it tough to finish the pint. So I left this bottle in the fridge and half-forgot about it until finally cracking it tonight. I’m not sure if it was just because of bottle vs. cask, or if the three months or so of cold aging helped it, but I found it to be a quite different and very enjoyable beer. The aroma is less boozy than I recall, but still big, with the oak, malt and hops playing very nicely off each other, creating a nice combination of orange, caramel and mellow wood. The flavour starts sweet, with some notes of caramel and tropical fruit, but it turns dry and bitter remarkably quickly, with a wonderfully long and lingering finish of pine and grapefruit and wood. Mouthfeel is full but not sticky or cloying, with just enough carbonation to keep it feeling lively. All in all, a very nice beer!

Bouteille 600 ml. 9.9%. Couleur Ambrée-orangée, mousse crémeuse beige. Arôme de bois, houblons, malt caramel. En bouche, douce, bois, malt, torréfaction, un peu de toffee, alcool, fruits noirs séchés. Finale caramel, houblon, amertume. Très bon, je m’attendais à moins...je ne sais pas si c’est la nouvelle batch mais wow...excellente.

600 mL bottle. Pours a dark amber colour with a lacy, lasting head of beige foam. Aroma is complex, candied orange, oak, caramel malt, cream and pine. Big and sweet, rounded out by a great big hop bite, 99 IBU’s of it to be exact, a long layered finish. Smooth as silk and medium carbonation. Do yourself a favour, don’t waste this by serving it right out of the fridge. A massive beer, really liked it.

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.

HeistAlmighty (1127) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - JUN 6, 2013
600ml bottle. Deep brown amber, not filtered, big toffee head. Aroma is grapefruit, pineapple and some caramel malt. Not especially intense. Flavour is more present, good balance between the toasty caramel malts and the big hop taste. All 99 IBUs are there, but they creep up on you. Touch of wood, too. Creamy body. Overall, this exceeded my expectations.

Pours a clear copper colour with a bit of a reddish tinge and a small off white head that disappears into a faint ring around the glass. Aromas of oak, caramel, light citrus and pine. Flavours of oak, vanilla, alcohol, citrus, sweet caramel, bitterness is a bit low but may have mellowed from time and oak aging.

Purchased from LCBO in the Wild Oat Series 4 pack. It was a bit different, not quite like other Double IPA’s but overall I still liked this beer. The high 9.9% alcohol was well hidden in this beer.
