ALLOVATE (2685) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 28, 2014
Ruddy copper and shimmering in the glass. Big, rocky crown of foam is resilient to fade. Good lace. Sweet, sticky, piney, resinous, whole hop flower nose tinged by notes reminiscent of nan’s favourite rose garden, peanut husks, uncooked sticky date pudding batter and pot pourri. Big orange blossom, honey, camphor and rose petal palate. Oily in feel and soft in carbonation with a medium light to medium body. Burnt sugar back end is with little on show of hops. Ends with dashy diacetyl and vanillin which lasts along with way too much burnt toast. Easily quaffed for strength but a little disappointing overall. (12fl.Oz, illegible best by date but assured a fresh sample, The Liquor Shed, Jandakot)

sudomorph (946) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 27, 2014
12oz bottle. Not aged. Pours a deep amber/caramel with a half finger, off white head that laces well. Aroma has notes caramel, barrel, and some sweetness. Taste is sweeter but balanced. Big caramel/dark fruit notes with some hops and barrel taste and a drawn out, bitter finish. Medium-full body with a medium carbonation. Smooth in the mouth. Overall a really great beer. Lots of caramel/real fruit flavour blended with barrel notes. Yum.

Muggus69 (1609) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - JUL 27, 2014
355mL bottle Presents a deep amber body with decent clarity. Dense slightly beige head holds on. Plenty of woody hops on the nose; freshly hewn pine, resiny sap, grapefruit rind, ripe stonefruit with undertones of toffee & biscuity malt. Oak not hugely apparent, a touch of oak toastiness & faint whisky notes. Full body, excellent length & persistence on the palate, moderate carbonation, sticky, resiny texture. Malts take shape on the palate - rich caramel, roast nuts, dried fruits, leading into charred, lightly fruity Whisky notes, and concluding with aggressive American hop notes of woody spice and bitter citrus. Resiny, lingering bitterness gives you something to think about on the finish, a bit of warmth hits home there too. Subtle oak character overall, but not disappointing, comes through more as it warms. Powerful stuff

A- Vigorously poured with a 1in head. Brownish red in color with a tan head fading and leaving a nice lacing. S- A very nice oak character. T- Hoppy and oaky. Not one over powers the other and they work well together. M- woody if there is such a thing. O- I definitely feel like the regular version of this is better. The oak gives it a nice difference but doesnt add much in a positive way,

kchampagne (112) - Jacksonville, Florida, USA - JUL 20, 2014
Poured from a bottle. Color is a deep amber color with a good amount of carbonation that keeps the mouthfeel light. The taste is heavy with malty sweetness and a good amount of bitterness on the back end. This is a great beer, but it may be a bit much for someone new to the style.

FestDecBeet (412) - - JUL 16, 2014
Look: pours a cloudy light brown. Just a little darker than amber. Off light tan head that disappears quickly. Smell: oak. Hops. Alcohol. Tobacco. Taste: oak, alcohol. Tobacco, like an unlit cigar. Black pepper. Feel: thick mouth feel. Leaves a film on the mouth. Fairly heavy carbonation. Overall: don't like this near as much as am regular arrogant. Not sure if it is the oak or what but not quite as good. First drank: home 7/15/14

eaglebones (75) - Michigan, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Bottle. Pours a beautiful copper-red with a huge beige head and lots of lacing. Aromas of malts, dark fruits, and oak. Creamy, medium-bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Sweet flavor up front followed by strong bitterness from hops and oak. Very nice beer but not for the faint of heart.
