12oz bottle shared courtesy of TomDecapolis. Poured a medium brown color with a small sized off white head. Aromas of roast, caramel, nuts, lightly earthy, smoke, and light oak. Tastes of caramel, nutty, roast, and light vanilla. Where’s the Oak (very subtle).

j12601 (9548) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAY 12, 2009
Bottle at the “Drink for Charity” event at Rattle & Hum, shared by Malubrius I believe. I honestly think there are actually two Ithaca breweries. One of them puts out the Excelsior stuff, like the amazing Brute, Ten, and White Gold. The other makes apricot wheat, nut brown, etc. Pours a clear brown with a thin white head. This smells just like the normal nut brown. If they tossed in some oak chips, I couldn’t really detect it. Unpleasant.

blipp (8181) - La Mesa, California, USA - JUN 4, 2009
Draft at Coles in Buffalo. Pours cola brown with a thin head. The aroma is sweet, with butterscotch, brown sugar, and hazelnuts. Oak shows up in the flavor, along with some sweet caramel malts. A bit muddled, the oak just seems out of place. Still not that bad.

TaktikMTL (7034) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 20, 2009
Bouteille de 12 oz achetée directement à la brasserie. Arôme: Odeur de caramel avec une pointe chocolatée. Apparence: La couleur est brune avec une faible densité de bulle. Présence d’un mince col beige mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût de caramel avec une pointe d’amande. Courte durée de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps et la texture sont mince. Faible effervescence en bouche. Légère présence de caramel en arrière goût. (Rating #2137)

egajdzis (6105) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 27, 2008
Poured a lightly hazy, red amber color with a small, light tan head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malts, light cocoa, nuts, caramel malts and a bit of vanilla oak. Taste of nuts, light roast, vanilla, citrus fruits, and caramel, with a lightly bitter finish. Thanks to Tom for sharing!

kramer (5827) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 20, 2008
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear amber brown body with a minimal off-white head that ran to a thin ring. Not much to the nose to signify that this was aged on oak, it is just about your average Brown Ale. Nutty, slightly grainy, a little bit of Nutella, and some light toasted malt. The flavor is minimally oaky as well. Slightly sweet with toasty nutty malt, a touch of graininess but not a whole lot. There may be a tad of raw oak on the late finish, but it is so little I do not think that I would have ever noticed if it were not on the label. Mouthfeel is light bodied, a little thin, with fizzy moderate carbonation. Overall, a decent drinker, but do not pick this up if you are looking for a wood-aged beer fix.

Rciesla (5500) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - JAN 8, 2009
Bottle extra in a trade. Pours a dark brown amber body with a light off white head that diminishes to nothing. Sweet malty nose, a hint of nuttiness, almond. Very weak thin watery body. Nutty with a lingering light roastiness almost tobacco esk. Not much more, i was eager to move on.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 10, 2010
Bottle. Pours a light brown/amber and a thin lasting head. Aroma is nutty, toast, light chocolate, vanilla and oak, raisins leather and earth- ropey- almost shoelace? Light lactic sour taste with chocolate, oak, and roasted nuts more leather and slight plastic in the end.
