Fantastic hoppiness just like the original. I do like the oak but I feel like it takes away from the drinkability of the beer. I prefer the original but Iíll switch it up every once in a while.

Bottle. Dark red body with a small offwhite head. Piney aroma with wood, dark fruits, malt. Taste is rich sweet of caramel, some grapefruit, oak, pine, apples and chocolate. Strong hoppy bitterness behind the sweetness in finish, aftertaste is a little to woody for me, but itís absolutely a nice beer.

gegwilson (1026) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2014
Bottle from the Bottle Shop in Lancaster. Pours chestnut with a good creamy beige head. A really fruity taste to begin with. Lots of tropical notes, mango especially. The initial sweetness gives way to a nice long bitter finish with plenty of pine. A damn tasty ale, although I prefer the unoaked version.

John25 (436) - Middletown, New Jersey, USA - AUG 13, 2014
Bottle. Super dark amber. Aroma is heavy rich malts, oak wood, and pine. The taste adds caramel, a lot of oak, and a citrus hop bitter note on the finish. Low carb, rich coating in the palate. Excellent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

minutemat (1502) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2014
355ml bottle from Utobeer. Pours opaque brown with big off-white head. Malty toffee nose, taste is bitter roast, caramel and twiglets. Canít detect much of an oak influence. A bit too rich for my liking.

jmgreenuk (4230) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 29, 2014
Bottle from Beers of Europe, courtesy of my kids for Fathers Day :-) Poured a clear medium amber with a frothy white head and some broken lace. The aroma is malt, resin hop. The flavour is medium bitter with a smooth big wood, toffee resin hop bitter, light toothpaste, boozy alcohol palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation. A rather unusual beer and highly drinkable.

Bouteille. Saveur Biere. Robe ambrée intense aux reflets rubis, mousse beige. Nez de caramel et de vanille. Bouche gourmande de caramel avec des notes légères de chocolat et une saveur puissante de cachou. Finale sèche de vanille, d'herbe et de bois. Une belle réussite. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ALLOVATE (2382) - 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 nanís 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)
