On tap at the brickstore as part of their 12 year anniversary celebration. Pour is a murky brownish red color with zero, I mean zero head. The look is not incredibly appetizing. Luckily the beer drinks better than it looks. The sweetest beer I had today. Some chewy malt backbone with a touch of bittering hops. Oak aging adds a touch of hotness and a bit of wood and nuttiness to this beer. Creamy malt texture and relatively drinkable. The hot alcohol is slightly dis-orienting but other than that this is a really nice creation.

Sampled at the second annual Bistro’s West Coast Barrel Aged Beer Fest: Pours a transparent orange bronze with a thin ring of wispy white head. Aroma of big fresh grapefruity hops and a touch of fresh American oak. Body starts fairly full and toasty malty sweet with lots of fresh citrusy hops and good oaky balance. Finishes crisp and bittersweet and very drinkable. I loved the clean oaky flavor in this.

draft @ bigwood fest - couldn’t resist one of my fav laqunitas brews now oaked aged; rich, ruby brown with slight tan head; big brown sugar aromas with slight malt and alcohol hints; creamy texture and sugary flavor mix of malts, oak and molasses; prefect balance of sweetness and alcohol; yummy

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 1, 2007
At Portland’s 2007 Holiday Ale Festival--Brown and slightly amber body. Nice off-white head. Caramel, oak, and hops punch. Biscuity and biting. Smooth creamy finish. Class act beer!

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - NOV 30, 2007
On tap at the Holiday Ale Fest 2007. This is one where I think the regular versions is a much nicer beer. The barrel character overwhelmed, thinned out the flavor, and left the finish very bitter. I prefer the malt flavor I got out of the original, it felt like it all battled with the oaked flavor in this.

aspidites (1272) - manteca, California, USA - NOV 22, 2007
Mild vanilla and brown sugar on a big sweet barleywine nose. Hops and oak come thru on the palate with notes of caramel, toffee, bubblqum and biscuit. Sweet hoppy finish.

Draft at the Bistro’s West Coast BA Fest, 11/10/07; Nose of ivy, hops, and oak; hazy rust with a ring of straw bubbles; flavor of hop bitterness, light woodiness, caramel, and ivy hop bitterness.
