sample at Stone Brewery. Reddish brown with tan head. Good balance of hops/ malt/oak. My favorite of a great brewery. Some fruity,floral. Very satisfying

Disappointed me actually. It is rare to find this beer as it used to only be brewed once a year. The oak is barely noticeable. You can actually smell the hops which is rare with a beer. Iím not a particularly big fan of hoppy beers so Iím not impressed with the flavor. The bitter overwhelms the subtle flavors in the beginning of the sip. I can respect the beer for what it is, itís just not for me.

Great brew. The oak really helps to balance out the beer as it lends a "malty" flavor that reminds me of sherry. I enjoyed it very much

Roasty, toasty nose. Red, brown color. Wood up front. Medium sweet. Full bodied and sticky. Nice bitter aftertaste.

The oaked vesion is very nice. Its still an agressive beer but a nice beer to have once in awhile.

Beer smelled very hoppy and slightly sweet. Beer pours an off white thick head, beer amber red color and very cloudy. Beer was pretty good it was very hoppy and a slight bitter taste.overall I liked the beer and would drink it again.

Bottle to pint glass. Pours dark amber with a small tab head. Aroma of oak (surprising), hops and toasted malt. Flavor goes from front to back very smoothly - semi-sweet malty to earth hops. Incredibly balanced. Mouthfeel is on the thin side. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured into a tulip, dark cherry colour with a good amount of creamy head. Smells of the barrel, lots of malt and some currant. Tastes like a barrel aged beer, lots of caramel and malt. Gotta say, itís quite bitter in the finish. You get used to it, but I was surprised at how much the back of my tongue was stinging after the first sip. You get used to it fast enough, though. This has been one of my first Stone beers. Itís pretty solid, but Iíd like to try this with the non-oaked version at some point.

Bought 25Jan2008, tasted 02Feb2008. The aroma has a malty,smokey/roasted, sweetness. The brew has a hazy/cloudy deep red/brown. The flavor starts with a roasted/smokey, and sweet maltiness. The hops donít showcase themselves until the very end with a earthy, leathery taste. the palate has a a nice full sweetness from the malts that finishes with a long, bitterness at the end.
