hopscotch (9371) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 8, 2011
Bottle… Cloudy caramel-colored ale with a mid-sized, frothy, off-white head. Excellent retention. The bouquet is estery and leathery, presenting additional notes of raisin and dried plum. Medium-bodied and sand-papery with fizzy carbonation. Woody flavor. Also some vinous notes intermingling with moderately bitter tannins. Finishes bitter and Sahara-dry. Abrasively over-attenuated. Zero residual sugar, it seems. 11% abv? Definitely would not have guessed that. Drinks more like 4%. Bottle generously shared by landhoney!

Bottle thanks to Seth. Burnt orange pour with an off white head. Hoppy with bitter orange, butterscotch, and and caramel malt flavors.

erickok (3745) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - NOV 23, 2011
Golden copper body again here with a tiny white head. Some more fruit this time around, plus the wood character and light yeast accompanied with dry leaves and grapes. Starts out quite harsh - even though there’s a light sweet contrast - and then evens out into a longer dry, leathery taste. Salty even. This one concludes my series tasting and (unfortunately?) the reference, non-aged version wins overall for me. It doesn’t hide the alcohol as well but adds a balanced and smoothing sweetness that’s lost in the woody characters.

Rosebud butternuts (2396) - Denton, Texas, USA - OCT 3, 2011
bottle thanks to bu11zeye. poured gold with a white head. aroma was orange, caramel, and citrus. flavor was pretty much the same plus a big fruity hop profile. body was light and fizzy.

kermis (5606) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 17, 2011
Bottle shared with friends. Similar appearance to others in the series. Not particularly different and certainly very little oak in the flavour

The Revelation Cat Woodwork Series. Let’s line’m up and knock’m down. Departing from the base beer and tackling the two oaked varieties we’re finally here at the end of the line, at the acasia-barrel aged beer.

Eh. Both the American and French oak wood added some slight tannic astringency that carried to and past the finish, as well as a small, small hint of vanilla. Both seemed to faintly mute the hops, allowed a bit more sweetness, but, then again, the base beer had a fair amount of sweetness to it to begin with. And, well, the acasia doesn’t bring anything really different to the table beyond a low note of pepper.

The scant few days this beer sat on wood allowed it to pick up a few vague additional subtleties, but not nearly enough to warrant going out and acquiring a bottle of each. At last, the menacing-looking, sneering cat revealed: the experiment was a flop. Man, cats are assholes.

Habanero (2721) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - AUG 26, 2011
Bottled. Pours hazy, deep amber with a large off-white head, that’s leaves some nice lacings. Fruity nose of citrus, passionfruit and vanilla notes. Sweet flavour with citrus, passionfruit, caramel and wood + acasia notes. Medium to full bodied, creamy to oily texture and average carbonation. Ends up nice bitter and with an alcohol touch. Also an excellent brew, but very simular to the reference, maybe a little more complex.

bottle at tasting. similar appearance as the rest of the series. this was the more interesting of the group. a bit of pineapple and caramel in flavor and the wood seemed to make a slight appearance. overall, i like the idea of the simple experiment(one hop, one malt, 7 days of barrel aging).
