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.

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.

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.

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.

Jess aged this beer for 3 years before we tasted it. Mellow with almost no trace of bitterness. Wonderful plum and alcohol nose. Reddish brown, somewhat flat and watery.

2012 25.4oz bomber into Spiegelau Soiree snifter @ 55°; deep vibrant amber body beneath a 2.5" tight light khaki head, fading to a solid sheet with eclectic lace all around; fruity English esters and citrus notes mingle with fresh cut wood merging into creamy fig and caramel malts; taste follows on a warming mmh body; spirit like notes and drying wood finish with some citrus in the background; definitely worth grabbing again, and readily available in my area

Pour is dark red/brown with a light tan head. Nose is malty with hints of fruits like dark cherry and currant. Taste is malt, malt and more malt. The sweetness is well balanced with hop bitterness to give a nice balanced flavor. Mouthfeel is medium and has nice effervescence with a nice but not too lingering aftertaste. Overall very good.
