COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This special beer has been brewed using Munich malt and golden oats to give it a beautiful biscuit backbone and a creamy smooth finish. Fuggles hops add their signature earthy and rich character before maturation in bourbon oak unlocks delicious flavours of vanilla and toffee from deep inside the oak grain. Available exclusively in all provinces of Canada (except Quebec and PEI).

2011. Golden with a small white head. Aroma of grapefruit, with a bit of lemon peel, grain and grass. Sweet sugary malt flavour with a grapefruit note.

thewolf (11838) - Kolding, DENMARK - JAN 9, 2012
Bottle, bought @ Bierzerg.de
Pours deep coppery amber with a small, creamy, off-white film head. Aroma has dry oak, caramel, sugar, vanilla, some floral notes. Medium to low carbonation, fat and oily mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet, fat caramel, light oak, some mild dryness, sugary. Kinda dry oaky finish. Fine, light warming finish.

Sammy (10555) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 17, 2011
2011 vintage, kept a half year old. Way too smooth. Easy drinking but very uninteresting. Rum and slightly hazy coloured body, a little creamy lace.

jercraigs (9253) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 23, 2011
2011-10-23. Crisp dark amber orange body with a small beige head that fades. 3+ Flavour is fairly sweet malty profile, light bitterness and hops, creamy sort of vanilla like character that I assume is from the oak. The wood is muted otherwise and not overpowering like some of their other offerings. Hints of citrus in the finish, maybe? 6+ Light alcohol notes in the aroma, mild oak and vanilla, caramel. Decent but not entirely to my tastes. Bottle from LCBO

JoeMcPhee (9169) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 24, 2011
Deep amber golden pour. The nose is fairly caramelly and toasty. Lots of soft vanilla and toffee over a light sweet brown sugar backbone. The beer isnít terribly sweet, but it has a lot of malt components in it. A little bit of woody character in this one with a touch of peppery alcohol (had no idea it was 8.3 before I started drinking it). Very oaky with only a bit of biscuit malt backing it up - lots of bourbon character. Itís decent, but kind of a simple brew.

j12601 (9100) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - APR 5, 2013
Bottle at a tasting at Andyís. Pours a clear brown amber with a small white head. Lots of little dirty flocculated yeast in there. Sweet and malty with a bit of wood and a caramel. Medium bodied, sweet and bordering on cloying. Long sweetness and a bit of wood again. Decent, but nothing amazing.

MoritzF (9094) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - JUL 18, 2011
(bottle, 33cl) Clear, deep golden to amber colour with a medium-sized tanned foamy head. Cara-malty and slightly oaky aroma with notes of biscuits, vanilla and a subtle citrus-fruity touch. Sweet flavour, almost full bodied with a moderate carbonation. Biscuity malty taste with notes of caramel, vanilla and fruity notes; sweet malty and slightly oaky finish with a present alcoholic bite. 07.VII.11
