Braincage1 (147) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - JAN 4, 2010
Bottle from Total Wine. A brown and ruby brew with a tan head. Good aroma...at first just grapefruit but then I got an intantly recognizable burst of vanilla and caramel. Flavor has a sweet start, hoppy and rather generic in the middle but a definite long lasting oaked toward the end. Would have preferred more flavor complexity but do enjoy the addition of the oak flavor in the end.

ChrisFields (77) - Ashtabula, Ohio, USA - NOV 7, 2014
Poured a dark bronze with a thin light head. Aromas of caramel, toasty grains, and apricot. Tastes of roasted nuts, smokey wood chips and sweet malt. Medium body with mild carbonation. Overall very good.

Arcadia (23) - DeLand, Florida, USA - NOV 4, 2014
Bottle from ABC. Pours a thick, dark brown with a very thin head; gone almost instantly. Smells of caramel maltiness and faint vanilla. Dark fruits abound. The oak taste definitely comes through for me. Full bodied, oily, thick mouthfeel and a really smooth finish. Acquire. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hawthorne (4) - - NOV 3, 2014 does not count
Appearance: Deep amber color with ¼ inch cream head. Head appears to have viscosity of whipped cream. No real lacing to speak of. Smell: Caramelly, molasses-like. Bananas and rum. Oaky. Taste: Surprisingly balanced, based on the smell and oak-aging. Not too sweet. Starts with gentle, bubbly carbonation followed by a creamy, rich mouthfeel. Hop bitterness comes through fairly strong for the style. Definitely tasting the oak and maltiness as it finishes, and a warm heat exudes from the alcohol. Overall: Pleasing aromas and a very well-balanced beer. A little thinner than I imagined, but other than that it is high-quality.

Foggy ruby with long lasting rocky half inch of foam. Aroma is toffee, candy, pine, oak, vanilla. Taste is significantly bitter. Oak is there, but fairly subtle. Honestly there’s more "just bitter" than interesting flavours it seems. Good.

unclemike (2280) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - OCT 22, 2014
Poured a darker amber color with an averaged off white head. Woody aroma with light vanilla. I found the woodiness to really come out in the flavor (a lot stronger vs. the aroma). Malts in hops in there as well. Lighlty sweet.

"this beer was very good. it mellowed most all that i didn’t particularly care for in the regular AB. Very smooth, as the oak aging treated this beer VERY well."

Really good brew...not too oaky thouigh...I am not bitching cuz I do not like a ton of unbalanced oak. Big malts and great hops as stone always does.
