A little smoky on the nose, but not much hop at all. Kind of a biting barrel-aged quality to it, without the development some hopping and malts with structure would have imparted.

Draft at The Dam Pub, Thornbury. Dark amber colour with bubbly head. Slight sweet aroma. Medium bodied, sweet tasting with the oak flavour coming through prominently. Nice beer for a bit of change from the usual. Seems to taste better on draft than when I have tasted it from a bottle in the past.

This beer didnít seem to know what it was trying to be. It was almost special but weaker than described.

330ml bottle from Alko Malmi. Clear amber colour, hardly any head, soft carbonation, full body. Very fruity aroma, with some toffee, vanilla and oak, sweet taste, slightly boozy aftertaste, not much hops. Some decent aromas but way too sweet for me.

11.2 ounce bottle poured into a brandy snifter. Pours a translucent copper with a thicker white head of foam. The aroma has a mildly woody note on top of some grassy and slight skunking. The taste has a lot of wood and vanilla with some nutty semblances. Very sweet. Sticky mouthfeel.
