Bottle from Corvallis Brew Supply, a slightly more acetic and sharp character than the other three. Very tannic, nice but American Oak takes the cake here.

HogTownHarry (6130) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - OCT 6, 2014
September 6, 2014 - 330ml bottle shared by theydon_bois with me and harrisoni. Cloudy deep amber with a decent fluffy lasting straw-coloured head. Smells like a barleywine - nutty, lots of malt, definite alcohol, some woody character but not a lot - spicy (8+). Taste follows, but a tad thin - not the malt monster I was expecting. Average body, airy mouthfeel, medium-length finish, and not at all boozy - a little dry tingle in the aftertaste.

Theydon_Bois (9945) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2014
Bottle split in Mother Arch, acquired from Brasserie 4:20 Feb ’14. Murked up amber/chestnut brown with a well appointed beige covering. Nose is candied fruit peel, spice, toffee, sweet notes, mellow dark fruit, nutty tones. Taste comprises toffee, light spice, dates, figs, dark fruit rinds, lightly oxidised but not too detrimental to the flavour, candied fruit. Medium + body, fine carbonation, sweetish licks in a semi drying close. Decent enough offering, has aged fairly gracefully, drinks below 11%.

Borresteijn (4927) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 15, 2013
37.5cl Bottle from De Molen, bought a long time ago. Why is this listed as a BSA here, when it clearly says "Strong IPA" on the label? Anyway: Hazy orange colour, almost no head. Aroma of apple juice, liquorice powder, yeast, oranges. Flavour is medium-sweet, malty, orange, floral, yeast, earth, liquorice, something quite spicy, sharp citrus, some biting alcohol, bitter fruity finish with a hint of wood. Medium to full-bodied. It’s way past its BB date I think, doesn’t smell or look very nice, but has some interesting and nice flavours.

daje (2609) - NORWAY - JUL 15, 2013
Bottle at Olympen, june 29th 2013. Cloudy dark golden body, small white head. Aroma of malt, spices, wood and grapefruit. Taste is yeasty with grassy and red-fruity hops, lots of caramel. Sweet taste, thick body, piney end, warm alcohol and malt aftertaste. Not quite sure what to make of this.

Wolfbass (937) - Firenze, ITALY - APR 27, 2013
All’inizio non mi colpisce favorevolmente, sia all’aspetto che al naso, un pò troppo mieloso; mentre dopo un paio di sorsate diventa irresisitibile. Va giù che è un piacere nonostante gli 11 gradi, e soprattutto non stanca, anzi ce ne vorrebbe sempre di più. Grande bere!!

PotjeBier (1771) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 5, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2013 And a third 4 year old bottle, next to the French Oak & American Oak. Golden to amber color, clear, seems there’s a bit more carbonation. Aroma’s: herbal, tea, caramel & biscuit retronasal, bergamot. Flavor is medium sweet, light bitter, with biscuit. Medium bodied, drinks easily too. Finishes slightly dry with a medium bitterness. Not much left of the wood, alas.

zaf (248) - ITALY - FEB 3, 2013
aroma: caramel, cereal, resin, floral, alcohol, woody, apparenza: orange, red, sparkling, rocky head, gusto: medium sweetness, very bitter, palato: full body, slick feel, soft carbonation, bitter, le premesse erano ottime e alla fine si è rivelata essere una super birra..premetto che su ratebeer non c’è la versione da me assaggiata,ovvero quella maturata 6 mesi in acacia oaks e 6 mesi in french oaks,quindi la voto su questa qui..natale la introduce come un liquore di luppolo,con la carbonazione "assorbita" dal legno che però le ridà un bel sentore legnoso misto all’alta presenza di luppolo (110 IBU)..aroma resinoso e legnoso,floreale,maltato..schiuma compatta,marroncina e densissima,birra ambrata/rossa..gusto pieno,amaro a mio parere bilanciatissimo con l’alcolicità e la presenza di malto..finale deciso e amaro..super birra! bevuta all’elfo!

Richmond 19th. Medium brown, aroma yeasty, some caramel. Even more caramel. Not bad. First beer done on acacia wood I think!
