Small beige head. Clear dark brown body. Syrupy tar and molasses aroma with roasty licorice notes. Sweet perfumy smoky spicy taste with musty vanilla notes. Full-bodied. Mild, flat, slightly hot mouthfeel. Dryish alcohol and vanilla aftertaste with smoky tarry lavender perfume notes. Too perfumy and sweet, but the base beer shines through and is still great.

On tap, Haand Festival 2012. Theregular version is one of my very favourites, the oak chips give an extra dryness and some vanilla. But I’m not convninced it is really an improvement.

UPDATED: APR 19, 2014
Draught @ CBC ’12 as ”Sunturnbrew Oak’d”
Very slow bubbles coming from the bottom of my glass. Aroma is rather nice with smoke, wood and ash from a campfire. Also some artifical, finger colour -like notes. Flavour is very oaky and somewhat smoky with ash, wet wood and hints of tannine. Dry and somewhat leathery finish with throat-warming alcohol. Intensive, nice and not too stuffy.
