Kennet. Poured a cloudy orange with almost no head. Aroma is apricot and a funky yeastiness. Taste is light(?) and smooth with flavors of more yeast and light malt. Nothing at all to write home about as I was expecting a lot more from this stuff.

KSBF: Pours amber with a thin head. Aroma of wood, hops, and sweet malt. The wood and the hops blend in the aroma in a very nice way. The flavor is the same as the aroma but with the sweet malt taking a more assertive position. Very nice rich, deep yet drinkable flavor. Every thing blends together in a very nice cohesive way.

KSBF 04 Small white head, fair retention. Clear amber, copper hued brew. Sweet malt nose, sugary notes. Med/full body, silky texture. Full, medium sweet malt flavors, light spiceyness, caramel notes, light oak notes. Medium sweet finish, coating mouthfeel. 11% alc. is well covered.

On tap at the Kennett Square BF. Poured a medium copper color with a white head. Sweet. Aromas and tastes of brown sugar, caramel, citrus, and oak. Small alcohol comes through. Very good beer.

Kennett Brewfest... Poured a slighty hazy, copper color with a medium sized white head and light lacing on the glass. Citrus and pine hop, plus oaky aroma. Strong bitter grapefruit comes through, very light alcohol, oak compliments this beer nicely. I prefer this unblended version over the blended.

UPDATED: DEC 26, 2004 Wow, what a thing this is. Tasted at the First Annual Hops Throw-Down in Brookline, MA, this beer poured out with no head whatsoever, looking like apple juice. The smell was of alcohol, oak, citrus, alcohol, hops, and alcohol. This beer was incredibly bitter and abrasive, yet with a sturdy malty foundation. Iím sure more will come out with this beer, but according to the info at the bar the "Woody" had an "unknown" IBU, but an 11.5% alcohol level. Not sure how long itís been aged in the barrel, but a very interesting idea, I thought, oak-aging an IPA. Powerful, powerful stuff.
