Has a dark amber color with a light brown head. I smell oak, dark malts and fruits. I taste all of the same with some butter, vanilla, and a touch of nuttyness. I also taste chocolate in the finish. This is a smooth one. Very soft mouth feel. Damn good! Smooth.....

Pours a light caramel brown color with a big foamy white head. Pleasant semi sweet aroma. Very smooth but flavors aren’t very bold. OK but not really that special.

Drank from a pint glass, poured from a 550ml bottle, brewed in 2009! Super oaky aromas, & raisins. Pours a beautiful deep, dark copper color, with a bit of white head. Super smooth, and light in body. Malt forward, with wonderful flavors of oak. Awesome brew, I need to grab some more of this and condition it longer!
