Small Bottle. Dark red to amber color, medium sized head with lacing that lasts through the beer. Very big beer, lots of strong hops and there is a nice oaky flavor, not overly oaked, the balance is really great. It hits pretty hard but still goes down pretty smoothly.

A completely different beer than the regular version. pours deep crimson. More balanced, bigger malt presence, much sweeter and more complex. Hops more subdued. Oak flavor noticeable with smokey notes as well.

Oak flavour doesn’t taste as prominent any more with every time tasting this. Just a shame the regular version hasn’t made it to Europe.

You will get more hop aroma than oak at the start. Nice light oak notes when drinking, but definitely not as heavily oaked as the name implies. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

Extremely hoppy (per the norm with Stone). In this case I wasn’t impressed. Very bitter, too much of a fruit type taste. Not my favorite.

Absolutely do not drink this cold, or even particularly cool. As it warms, the flavor from the oak chips really begins to come out, and it’s much better for it. Pours a very nice deep red color, with an off-white head to match. There’s a typical Stone bitterness on the tongue, with some citrus and creaminess that lingers for a while. The oak element is subtle, this isn’t your typical ’barrel aged version’ of a beer, it’s very light with some sips more pronounced than others. IMO, it compliments the famous ABA tactfully.
