joekfsu (138) - Boardman, Ohio, USA - SEP 9, 2007
12 oz bottle. Small off-white head that is mostly diminishing. Pours a clear amber. Mild citrus, hop, and woody aroma. The initial flavor is dominated by hops. The oak aged taste comes on the back end, kind of spicy. Medium body, creamy texture. Mild carbonation with spicy, hoppy finish. Complex beer yet drinkable. Other than the price tag, would have no problem drinking this every day of the week.

Anglofile (138) - Piti, GUAM - DEC 30, 2007
Copper/amber colour. Small fizzy head that dissapates. Smells like grass (alfalfa) and a hair salon or barn-hay (HOPS!!!!). Strong hay flavor with lots of bite. Really slams into the back of your tongue. Marketing is cute but aims to make up for the lack of drinkability.

MrStitch (138) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 18, 2008
Bottle. Pours a dark stained wooden color with a nice tan head that leaves good lacing. Aroma is wood, hops, and malt. Flavor is excellent! Smooth and warm with hints of oak, hops, and malt all playing off of one another and leading to a clean finish. A great beer that I will most certainly be drinking regularly.

Bottle. Dark reddish-brown and nice lacing. Aroma is dominated by the hops. Taste is sweet but the hop presence is dominant.

BallyLoser (136) - Redmond, Washington, USA - OCT 6, 2007
Bottle: There is a sweet aroma with a hint of orange. a brownish orange colour.bitter and a bit of a wood taste. Seems dry for a moment, then finishes smooth.

pjweaver (136) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 4, 2009
Wafty hop aroma with woody oak and grassy soil. Dark caramel with solid head (slightly beige). Metallic and bitter on the tongue, some citrus tones. I was disappointed overall, very metallic and I got mostly cheap oak chip character from the oaking. Tangy and bitey on the tongue, smooth and velvety in the mouth.

Wordsworth (135) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 19, 2013
Bottle poured into snifter. Color is a deep red amber with a thin white head that lingers and leaves soapy lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel, malt, vanilla, hops. Flavor is both bitter and sweet with caramel, vanilla, hops and more hops. Slick mouthfeel. Finish is very long and bitter with subtle vanilla. Pretty good but I imagine a long-term aged one would be even better.

harbuck76 (134) - El Cajon, California, USA - APR 18, 2009
12 oz bottle.Pours reddish brown with tan head. enjoyed this more than AB. More mellow better flavor, I prefer smell of oak with hints of vanilla than regular AB . Not Bad,still not as good as double bastard ale.

thickfreakness (132) - AUSTIN, Texas, USA - SEP 11, 2008
Pours dark ruby color with a short lived beige head. Smell is strong of astringent oak, caramel, hops and some dustiness. Flavor is oaky, fruity, hoppy, caramel malt. Oak again is a little astringent and fresh for me. I much preferred the aged bottle I had in the past but I didn’t take notes for it. Not a big fan of this one while fresh.
