1.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. Amber in colour, with a sweet caramel aroma. Cloying in the mouth and tasted of liquid butter. Not for me.

2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Fantastic aroma I couldn’t wait to try it. The flavor was reasonable but the heavy robustness came out and filled me up before the first bottle was consumed. And a bit expensive at 4.75 a bottle in stores. I will drink it again at a later time to perhaps re-rate. Perhaps before a nice meal to excite my palate.

1.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pale amber colour, sweet aroma with vanilla, caramel and wood. Tastes the same as it smells, overly tannic and astringent presumably from the oak. Not really my kind of beer, I don’t like the cloying sweetness and astringency.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: APR 6, 2015 Pale brown colour. The oak and whiskey come through in the aroma. Texture is thin. Flavour has sweeter malty and vanilla notes. A half measure of a whiskey beer. Fairly easy drinking but not hitting in terms of depth and complexity.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a clear honey amber with a tall foamy head. Aroma is very nice and sweet. Caramel and sappy oak. Med body. Silky carbonation. Taste is sweet and hoppy with traces of alcohol, wood, and honey. Not a bad beer but not my style.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very different. pours clear amber/orange with slim, lasting white head. Smells delicious, sweet, citrussy and vanilla. Flavours start light and fruity, finishing woody, malty and slightly metallic. Smooth and gently warming.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Very pale orange/yellow colour and a smell reminiscient of a traditional lager. But this is an ale! The taste though, is all ale ;o) Slightly honey-sweet to begin with, it transforms into a malty taste with clear taste and aroma of oak.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The aromas of caramel and vanilla are strong and pleasant. It has a simailar flavour in description to its smell. Not very bitter but full flavoured nonethless. Truly different...in a good way.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rich aroma with caramel and vanilla dominating, but also some woody notes. Medium to full bodied, not too refreshing, but more packed with flavor. Lacking bitterness in the finish to balance the sweetness. Very interesting beer.
