Foggy ruby with long lasting rocky half inch of foam. Aroma is toffee, candy, pine, oak, vanilla. Taste is significantly bitter. Oak is there, but fairly subtle. Honestly there’s more "just bitter" than interesting flavours it seems. Good.

Poured a darker amber color with an averaged off white head. Woody aroma with light vanilla. I found the woodiness to really come out in the flavor (a lot stronger vs. the aroma). Malts in hops in there as well. Lighlty sweet.

"this beer was very good. it mellowed most all that i didn’t particularly care for in the regular AB. Very smooth, as the oak aging treated this beer VERY well."

Really good brew...not too oaky thouigh...I am not bitching cuz I do not like a ton of unbalanced oak. Big malts and great hops as stone always does.

Bottle from Cellarbrations Sandy Bay February 2014. Good beer with a woody almost smoke like aroma. Goes down a treat.

Bottle to Nonic Pint glass. Pours a rusty red with off white foam and lacing till the last drink. Carmel and vanilla aroma with a hint of oak. I picked up some toffee, citrus, and oak flavors. Finishes with a chocolaty and dry finish.

jsnicholas (252) - Woodinville, Washington, USA - OCT 5, 2014
Bottle (12oz $3.25): Pours a dark golden or redish brown. Little head, but nice lacing. Nice carbonation. Where it falls down with me is that over burn/toasted favors and the lingering bitterness.

manuelMTL (164) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 1, 2014
Pour is dark brown and slightly hazy. Aroma is sweet malts with dark fruits. Prune notes and some vanilla. Taste is a lot drier than expected. Punchy resinous bitterness which is backed up by the dried fruit flavors. Some burned coffee notes too. The woody notes from the oak chips are not dominant but add to the complexity of this brew. Great beer!

Bork (335) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - SEP 23, 2014
Dominated by a long, dry, hoppy bitterness. A fair amount of dark, dried fruits in there, but not a whole lot of oak. Arrogant it is, but also immensely tasty.
