COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Based on a traditional English stock ale. This beer is a blend of freshly made ESB and a strong ale that has been aging 2 years w/ a strain of brett found in English stock ale barrels. This method allows the beer to have a balance between the dry earthyness of the fresh ESB and the sweetish piney fruitiness of the strong ale.

Growler. Pours a slightly hazy dark amber body with a one finger off-white head that fell to a thin film. The nose is quite oaky with a good amount of alcohol, lots of caramel and fruitiness as well. Some moderate English hops, but they’re mostly overpowered by the oak. The flavor is pretty hefty, some slight oxidation and oak, moderate bitterness up front and moderate alcohol. The ESB thins it out a bit and makes it quite drinkable in larger quantity. Lots of caramel and brown sugar sweetness. I like the raw oak flavor most of all. Medium bodied with a soft light carbonation level. The oak’s a touch drying and tannic. Some lingering caramel sweetness below the hops. Pretty nice, think it was the right call to cut this guy with the ESB, the oak would have been a bit too intense.

Sampled on draft at the brewpub this beer poured a caramel-brown color with a medium sized soapy tan head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was faint caramel, wood, and light fruity hops. The flavor was sour caramel with undertones of mint, orange, lemon and vague herbs. The finish was long, malty, herbal and almost perfumey. Medium body. Disappointing.
