This is an American style Stout, which was aged on American White Oak after its fermentation. The smell of oak, coffee & roasted barley dominate the aroma of this full-bodied opaque black ale. The flavor of roasted coffee beans, dark bittersweet chocolate & rich caramel make up this hoppy stout served in an English pint.

On draught at the Moosejaw brewpub in Wisconsin Dells, WI. Pours an opaque dark brown (not black) colored stout with a creamy tan head that has nice retention and lots of lacing. Aroma of mostly toasted dark malts, coffee with some mocha and a hint of vanilla. Taste is medium to full bodied, flavors of toasted dark malt, coffee some grassy and floral hops and a hint of vanilla. Finish is semi-dry with some mild bitterness and coffee aftertaste. For the oak-aged there is some vanilla in the aroma but the extra hop profile hides the oak-aged flavor and character.
