750ml bottle. Pours milky brown with a tan head that leaves a nice lace. nose of apple, vanilla, wood, honey and a hint of paint thinner...oddly not in a bad way. Quite sweet in the mouth with a heavy maltiness with honey and vanilla. Finishes bittersweet. A little too viscous on the palate for me.

SlovakSniper (3894) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 4, 2011
75 cl bottle. The look : Mahogany with a small tan head. Lacing all around the glass. The nose : sweet malts, light touch from the barrel, vanilla for sure, notes of fruits. The taste : caramel and honey sweetness with the quiet strenght of the oak. The mouthfeel : body is well rounded, bubbles are there and the texture is slightly oily. The finale : soft caramel and honey finish with a kiss from the wood. Overall : pleasant to drink late at night.

Bouteille 750ml, "Grande Réserve" vieillie 4 mois en fût de chêne. De couleur ambrée-brune foncée et claire. Nez boisé (fût de chêne), malté de caramel toffee sucré, moyen de fruits (prunes sucrées, traces de pruneaux et de raisins) et de vanille avec des notes d’alcool liquoreux, de miel et d’herbes. Moyenne-ronde en buche avec un pétillement moyen-bas et une texture légèrement liquoreuse et aux petites notes huileuses. Moyen goût fruité (prunes sucrées, léger de dates, traces de raisins) accompagné d’un goût de vanille et d’un goût boisé (fût de chêne) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût malté de caramel toffee sucré avec notes rôties et terreuses ainsi qu’un léger goût de miel et de notes de pain grillé. Parallèlement, un léger goût d’alcool réchauffant s’installe jusqu’en finale où l’on y retrouve également une légère amertume de houblon herbeux, des traces de noix grillées ainsi qu’un léger regain de goût de fût de chêne et des traces de fumée de bois. Post-goût moyen-long, légèrement amer de rôti, d’alcool et de houblon herbeux avec un léger goût boisé (fût de chêne) et fruité (pelures de prunes).

godofsky (274) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 18, 2011
750ml bottle. oak aged for 4 months. pours a murky dark brown with hints of amber coming through it. the oak dominates the aroma with some slight caramel. taste is sweet, with vanilla and honey leading the way. again, the oak makes its presence. full bodied, thick texture, soft carbonation. i prefer this beer without the oak aging. still great stuff, but double the price for nothing.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAY 12, 2011
Bottle. Pours a dark bruin body with a yellow off white head. Dry herbal and wooden splinter like tones. Light vanilla notes, some oak with a light fruit tone and a wisp of smoke. Soft with vanilla, honey and caramel with a mild warmth. Very nice.

Lanchester (189) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 17, 2011
Oak aged for 4 months. Pours a deep amber with ruby hints and a thin, quickly diminishing off white head. Hardly any lacing to speak of. Full aroma, replete with notes of whiskey, vanilla, and earthy/woody undertones. Strong oak presence in the flavor, really dominates and in a way stifles the complexity of the brew, although nonetheless makes for a very enjoyable experience. Finishes on the sweet and boozy side with a lingering woody character. Even with the lower carbonation level, this is quite full bodied and borders on being syrupy on the palate. Very nice. The only downside is that this beer is not highly drinkable; I would recommend enjoying this in small quantities as it can become overwhelming rather quickly.

En bouteille de 750 ml. Au départ, belle apparence mais la mousse et l’effervescence disparait trop rapidement. Les arômes qui en ressortent sont toutefois très plaisante. Le caramel, la prune sèchée, le miel, le chêne et les fleurs forment les effluves de ce bon liquide. Ses points moins forts sont en lien avec le manque d’effervescence mais ses forces sont les arômes et les goûts. Bonne bière.
