Bottle from Uber Tavern. Body is a nice dark amber with brown and a nice off white head. Aroma is very malty, with a light hint of alcohol, a slight nuttiness, and earthy. Taste is vanilla, oak, malt, alcohol, with light caramel. One of the better oak aged beers. Bravo!

Deep copper mahogany tone with a mild head. Oaky, vanilla, bourbon robustness makes this a nice desert brew. Share with a friend because this one is special.

Pours a transparent dark copper mahogany with a thin tan head. Nice bourbon oaky and sweet caramel malty aroma has some vanilla and mild peat. Body starts with sweet peaty caramel toffee well balanced with a nice bourbon oaky complexity toward a dry bittersweet finish. A unique and well-brewed beer.

22 oz bomber. Dark brown with hardly any head. As it warms, the aroma of oak comes out. Taste is smooth and alcoholic with flavors of the wood, caramel, vanilla and roasty nuts. Tasty chocolate in there also.

Bottled. Cloudy nut brown. Oaky nose. Sweet and full bodied. Vaniklla and oak dominates. Itís stil too sweet, but the oak aging has given it much more character and together with the alcohol it feels almost whiskey-like. Not very refined, but I find myself enjoying it.
