illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 4, 2008
Draft at Stone Bistro at RBSG, aged on French Oak. Pours a deep copper with a dissipating off white head. Cognac like aroma. Nice body and mouthfeel. Initial flavor of caramel, maple, and sweet raisens that moves toward a spicy and subtle pepper bitterness. Wood comes through on the finish. This beer warms the wind pipe. Not quite as bitey as the Brandy Barrel version, and a bit more simple (in a good way).

Lagunitasfan (1323) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 4, 2008
RBSG on tap. Has a smooth sweet, aroma. Not much of a head, with a moderate haze. Hints of almost burnt citrus. The oak flaver stood out in a very nice way. I was suprized at how much the flavors were effected by the different woods, or lack of.

A unique and gorgeous dark red, thick and foamy head. Aroma is fruity, hoppy and inviting. Bitter and spicy up front, pleasant and malty. A nice beer.

(Draught) Pours a lightly hazy amber body with a tall long-lasting beige head. Aroma of caramel, bread, citrus, vanilla, and pine. Flavor of hops (citrus, pine), caramel malt, and vanilla. This beer has heavenly goodness!

ACBF 2008. Wow, this was the first beer that I had at the fest, and I guess in my head I didn’t distinguish between the oaked AB and the oaked double, so didn’t think this was anything too special. It sure was tasty though....

What is there to say about this? It’s a glorious taste that cannot be described in "wine" terms.
