2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JAN 23, 2013 Bottle. Clear golden colour, small white head. Aroma hops, caramel, dark fruits, light roasted. Taste medium bitter, almost medium sweet, sweet wood hits you right away, light smoke. Barrel aging brought a new dimension to this beer, I am not sure if I like it, but it is definitely interesting. Minor dark fruits in the taste also, minor caramel. Finish smooth sweet wood with hoppy bitterness. Not bad, but not a lager of the year either. 7 3 7 3 14 - 11.9.2012
Rerate 23.1.2013 - Clear golden colour, nice stable white head. Aroma is plum, raspberry, wood, very light mint (where does it come from?). The wood in this beer is sweet. Some grapefruit sourness appeared, also diacetyl. Wood seems to be fighting with the hops here, mostly in finish. I definitely do not think putting this in barrels was a good idea. However it is good that I had a chance to taste the unusual.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours amber with a large, lasting head.
Nose shows honey, vanilla oak notes, buttery toffee, spicy hops and alcohol.
A bit weird.
Some oak transfers through as a flavour, along with the spicy notes, alcohol and soft toffee. The alcohol seems a little harsh and whisky-like.
Carbonation is too high.
