375, wide-capped and paper wrapped. Pours a pretty and opaque bright bronzed medium amber. Huge dense creamy tan head that really sticks around, showing gorgeous tight bubbles. Lemony, chardonnay-like acidic brightness on the nose. I donít know what acacia wood smells like (historic Greek warships, I suppose), but I am sure the bright fresh-cut wood smell coming through this is acacia. Probably a little too barrely but itís so interesting and singular that itís forgiven. Creamy medium body with tight carb. Lemons, grapefruit, peaches, and fresh cut wood on the mid palate. Mild finish. Really not bad, but, given the ingredients list and the post-ferment effects laid onto this beer, itís not really as dimensional as one might expect.

DocLock (8053) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 7, 2010
Bottle from Caponeís. Highly carbonatged pour wwhich pours turbid deep coppery orange with 3 finger fizzy yet clingy off-white head. Nose is earthy malt, resiny piney NS hops, some spicy esters. Tastes earthy, oaky, very resiny, and hot from the start. Gets yeasty and cobwebby late, with more earthy notes and a bit better balance as it warms, and the oak supports rather than taking center stage. Enjoyable.

patrickfannon (1241) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 24, 2010
Bottle. 12.7 oz. Split with and courtesy of Vin. Pours a deep, nearly opaque chardonary white wine-orange with a huge, monster, solide head with sediment on top. Slowly fades to a thin, off-white bubbly head. Aroma of sour white grapes, honey, funk, tart cherries, dry wood, and juicy hop resins. Full, smooth body with a rich, ripe fruit palate. Tart in the finish. Awesome double IPA.

DaSilky1 (2606) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 11, 2010
Bottle: Nice looking italian-shaped bottle...green, mind you, but wrapped in paper. The beer joins at the bottle of the glass a deep, hazy, dark orangish-brown color...the head atop is twice as tall as the beer underneath...light, fluffy, with a glass sheen and a peach colored hue. Nose is quite nice...a little like the japanese classic...musty, spice-like wood characteristics with a sweet, grapey underlying hop note or two that bends in the way of a molassis-like sweetness acting as a foundation for the spicy wood fumes. Flavors have a lot of that wood influence still...but some pretty intense nelson sauvin bitterness with a sweet, grapey, almost tart bite to it...even so, the sweetness and the bitterness are very complimenting to eachother...neither is too far reaching...and the nice warm alcohol behind it melds them into one. Iím so glad europe is starting to take the IPA and IIPA concept out of the hands of the americans...since american IPAs bore the living shit out of me lately...this brings back some fucking excitement to the style. Shit...I was only planning on drinking 1 beer tonight...but I may tap into that French Oak aged cat next.

BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - JUN 10, 2010
375ml bottle. Poured a slightly cloudy dark golden color with a thick and lasting head. Light perfume, mustiness and subdued hops in aroma. Getting a damp cellar thing with yeast involved. now picking up some soap and again some floral definitely the wood aging. Smooth body with medium carbonation and some bitterness in the finish. Flavor is lacking and maybe the wood did a number on the hops here. A bit sweet with some caramel and finishing dry. Overall an interesting experiment which yielded something not that interesting in the end.

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 12, 2010
In short: A sweet, sugary, fruity and woody ale that feels like a barley wine. Acceptable
How: Bottle 375ml at Brasserie 4:20, Rome Italy
The look: Partly cloudy orange body topped by a very small white head leaving good lacing
In long: Nose is surprisingly subdued for a 11% IIPA. Light aroma of dried fruits and woodshed. Taste is rather sweet, a bit too much so. Candied fruits, dried fruits, residual sugars, some construction wood. Not much bitterness. The barrel aging surely killed the hops. As a IIPA it fails but as some kind of sweet fruity woody barley wine this is decent. I love cats, those mysterious cute furry animals that exist somewhere between my eyes and the tv.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - MAY 10, 2010
(37.5cl bottle thanks to bu11zeye) Pours a cloudy gold with white fizzy head. Aroma of nice citrus hop and an odd woodiness that is alien to me. Flavor is the same. Still tasty, interesting, but tasty.

maxpizzo (62) - ITALY - MAY 3, 2010
awesome beer produced basing on the ideas of a roman brewer. presents great hoppy notes and aroma of wine and citrus. the idea of the barrel aging is interesting but in myu opinion doesnít add too much to the beer

Embrouille (2830) - SWITZERLAND - MAY 1, 2010
Bottled 375ml. Interesting aroma. Again, I think the barrel aged components donít add anything. Still pretty good.

(37.5cl bottle thanks to bu11zeye) clear yellow with light bubbles. Nose of candi sugar, grapes, vinous. Taste of bitter grapefruit, citrus, cane sugar, medium-light oily body.
