OnWisconsin (132) - Wisconsin, USA - DEC 21, 2012
Appearance was a almost amber in color with a nice white. On the nose I get sweet grapes up front with a maltiness followed by some wood character. On the palate I get sweetness up front with a nice smooth malty backbone followed by a nice earthy hop finish. A nice transition from the front of the tongue to the back. A solid strong ale.

daje (2254) - NORWAY - AUG 21, 2014
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 it’s 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 (462) - 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

355ml bottle from Utobeer. Pours opaque brown with big off-white head. Malty toffee nose, taste is bitter roast, caramel and twiglets. Can’t detect much of an oak influence. A bit too rich for my liking.

jmgreenuk (4257) - 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.
