OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - MAR 29, 2013
A - A thick 2 finger tan head sits on top of a hazy burnt amber brown. Good retention and big patches of lacing. S - Toasted malt, soft wood notes, and pine. Vanilla is pronounced along with brown sugar, cherry pie filling, maple, and toffee. T - Vanilla coated grapefruit provides bitterness right away. Roasted almond, toffee, amaretto, with woody undertones that become more prevalent towards the finish. Finishes with a dry spicy bite. Aftertaste is of citrus, mint, and slightly woody. M - Medium creamy body. Very complex nose on this one. The oak seems to bring out the pine and hide the citrus in the nose. The oak is defiantly there but doesn’t overpower the rest of the beer. It adds complexity without making it too dry. Serving type: bottle 11-05-2010

cobaink2 (275) - seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 5, 2016
Pours with almost no head. Dark Amber color. Tastes of rich malts. There is lots of herbal flavor in there. Lots of resin from the hops on the back end. Just a tad of oak that I can detect. Not bad but I’m my opinion just a slight upgrade from the base.

ElCapitan22 (321) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 24, 2016
Pours a dark brown color with nice lacing and has excellent head retention. Smells oaky and of bourbon. Tastes malty and of alcohol. Definite bourbon coming through. A real solid beer.

cmacklin (570) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 1, 2016
650ml bottle. Pours a clear, orange brown with a huge, creamy, long lasting, beige head that laces nicely. Strong hoppy aroma of grapefruit, oak, caramel malt, fruit and pine needles. Sweet malty flavour of caramel, oak, grapefruit, dried fruit and pine needles with a dry, bitter, hoppy finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Nicely done.

Brentv (566) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 26, 2015
From bomber, pours red with a one-finger yellow head. Aroma and taste of caramel. Taste is in-your-face bitter caramel, some citrus with a gentle sweetness. I would expect to find some vanilla notes here from the oak, but they don’t really come through - perhaps because everything else is so big. Medium mouthfeel. Bitter finish.

UXO (1121) - CANADA - DEC 13, 2015
Appearance: clear medium amber with one finger of dense light tan head, good retention and lacing. (4/5) Aroma: caramel/toffee, pine, woody, citrus, tobacco, mild vanilla, hint of spicy rye. (9/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, strong bitter. (8/10) Palate: medium-full body, moderate carbonation, lingering bitter finish. (4/5) Big oaky bastard with huge maltiness that is nevertheless just barely sufficient to balance the massive bitterness. Subtle, it ain’t, but man, it’s good. (17/20)
