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.

2012-05-02, bottle from Chevy Chase, Washington DC, in 2009, 4+ years old, 8-4-8-4-16=40
Hazy amber color, with small head. Strong oak vanilla aroma and malt. Sweet malt and caramel flavor, a bit buttery, with oak vanilla character; good bitterness, with a nutty edge, and a warming alcohol finish. It shows just minimal signs of age.

2010-04-23, tasting at Papsø, vintage 2006, 3+ years old, 7-4-7-3-14=35
Hazy amber color; generous creamy head. Creamy aroma, vanilla, sweet caramel and fudge, with very light sourness; chaotic. Quite strong body, sweet toffee and fudge flavor, with vanilla oak; the final is a bit drier. Confused, obvious, unimpressive.

ChrisOs ’Donkey Dork Lord’ Pre-GBBF Tasting. Hmmmm! Deja Vu! Coulda swore I’ve had this before but have no record of it. Light haze on a deep amber beer. Small pale tan head. Light palate, semi dry and crispish. Dark toffee - nicely jusged - not too sweet. Lovely oak notes, vanilla. Mild caramel. All hangs together is a tasty treat of a barleywine.
