From tap at Stone Bistro. Pours a clear golden amber with a creamy tan head. Mellowed down in aroma and flavour on malt and bread compared to the none-oaked version, but goes rather smooth and light. Smooth finish too with a mild spice note.

Ungstrup (29699) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 1, 2007
Bottled. A dark amber beer with a dark orange head. The aroma is extremely hoppy which gives it strong notes of grapefruit, but it also has strong notes of alchol. The flavor is sweet malty with strong notes of caramel and grapefruit, and only hints of vanilla, leading to a dry bitter end. Nice - but to me the oak notes are too subdued.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 8, 2007
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Clear, dark amber with an off-white head. Very pleasant hop aroma. Medium body with some caramel. A very discreet whiff of aroma hops, but otherwise just a raw and unrefined bitterness. A bit of a disappointment. 291206

oh6gdx (20883) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 27, 2008
Bottled (thanks omhper!). Amber colour, mediumsized beige head. Aroma is big fruity and grassy hops along with some wood and berries. Flavour is much the same with some licorice and sweet fruits.

omhper (19809) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 25, 2008
Bottled. Mahogany colour, small creamy head. Powerful grapefruity hop aroma that collides abrubtly with oak. Sweet and rounded with solid caramelly body. Massively hoppy, citric and grapefruity. The oak and hops bitterness combine to an unpleasantly inky finish.

anders37 (17224) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 27, 2008
Draught @ Issaquah Brew House. Pours a dark amber color with a small off-white head. Has a malty hoppy aroma with some hints of oak. Very malty hoppy vanilla and woody flavor. Long malty warming finish with some hoppy and woody hints in the aftertaste.

Highly hopped ale with a sweet malty finish. The hops are never over bitter and are crisp and refreshing. The oak chips impart a nice subtle vanilla.

Brown color wih nice generous head and nice lace. The aroma features mainly harmonious vanilla and some oxidisation. The mouthfeel is very smooth, well blended, with caramel flavor and nice Bourbon vanilla; more dark caramel later. Maybe less impact and freshness in the final. Still good, I wouldn’t age it more.

2009-11-09, bottle at Bishop’s Arms, Vasagatan, Stockholm, 7-5-7-4-14=37
Hazy dark amber color; small head. Rough aroma: alcohol, dust, sweat, yeast. Strong body, caramel flavor, harsh hop resins; not enough fruity or sweet.

Dark brown color; creamy persistent head. Beautiful aroma, where the hop is melting into sweet caramel and vanilla. The body is well structured, malty and caramel flavor, but I was expecting more sweetness at the end. Bold bitterness of course, but not enough exciting. Pleasant but controversial.
