Bottle. Pours a clear brown with a thick off-white head. Aroma of sweet malt, light fruits, bready malts. Flavor of roasted malt initially, some oaky notes, followed by the sweet malts. Definitely on the sweet side. It is an ok beer, but a little wearing for a whole glass.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bottle. Best by: 03/15/11. A clear ruby red pour with a thick antique white head. A mildly sweet aroma of caramel, biscuity/bready/cereal maltiness, and a little spiciness. Thin to medium-bodied. The taste starts with some semi-sweet caramel and a cereal maltiness. A crisp middle with some biscuity qualities. A little grassiness and lemon at the end. Some mild spiciness and a hint of oak throughout. Not a whole lot going on taste-wise...just a solid and very sessionable brew.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Deep amber color - very little aroma here. Taste is very lacking as well, this isn’t even a good dunkel and I certaintly can’t tell it’s been aged on oak. Some vanilla and caramel flavors - overall a big disappointment for me.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from ericandersnavy. Session 34. Pours dark ruddy copper with a foamy 3 finger light tan head. Aroma is something like woody/oaky dark fruit. Med body. Flavor is not-so-dark fruit with oak astringency. IBU 30 is not expected to be bitter, but the oak is pushing it - sort of like wind chill factor. So this is a moderately sweet, moderately malty tasting, beer that ends up in a mouth all curled up. Some noble hop character just adds to the effect. If you like a bitter, or imitation of bitter?, beer this should be good for you.
