COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is aged on new Missouri oak. The wood has a medium toast, which helps to caramelize the sugars in the oak and adds a nutty character to the beer as it soaks into the wood. Leave the corkscrew in the kitchen drawer and pop open a beer that will reward you with more flavors than most wines can dream of.

Bottle. Pours brown with reddish reflects. Small beige head and some lacing. Aroma: caramel, malt, oak, alcool and vanilla. Taste is fairly the same. Nice sweetness. Balance is great, alcohol is not too present. Godd BW, but something is missing to make it a really good BW.

2010. Pours a muddy red color with a thin off-white head. Aromas of very sweet malt, citrus, and a subtle oak. Taste is some sweet caramel, orange peel, and oaky vanilla. Some honey. The finish is sticky with a grapefruit-like bitterness. Not bad.

DiarmaidBHK (3386) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 4, 2013
Bottle from The Vine. Pours brown with a thin brown head that disappears quickly. A lot of oak on the nose. A lot of alcohol on the tongue. This one burns at times. The oak on the tongue is subdued. Not my favorite style.

Caramel, ginger, licorice, raisin flavors. Alcohol is strong in this one. Decent offering from the local craft brewery.

This is a 2008 bottle fom free beer week courtesy of Kier! Great aromatics coming off this, heavy in caramel and toffee, with hints of alcohol. Taste deep malt with caramel and toffee favors that just dance on the tongue. No alcohol is tasted. Palate is clean and tasteful. Really like this beer!

2011 bottle sampled at Kurt’s Blarneywine tasting on 3/16/13. Clear amber pour with nary a head. Aroma of malt, apple and oak. Malty and oaky flavor with a bit of apple character before a sweet finish with a bit of hop.

Steve_0 (2575) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 20, 2013
Bottle shared @ Crooked Stave ROY-G-BIV Day. 2010 Vintage. Pour is deep crimson with a small white head that quickly dissipated. Slightly oxidized aroma - dark fruits, caramel, earthy hops, red licorice, and oak. Taste is big oak, lightly grass, semi-sweet, bready, doughy, a touch of spice, vanilla, and toffee - pretty smooth. Medium body with soft carbonation. This one aged decently, but there was definitely some oxidation present. Not bad.
