Great nose with the vanilla and caramel. Color is nice too, with a rich bourbon color. There’s some malt on the first taste - but it’s all at the front of the mouth. It’s one of the only beers I’ve had where there’s almost no finish... It’s viscous on the palate, which is your only sense that you’re drinking an 11% beer. This one could sneak up on you.

How much balls does a southern tier suck if a southern tier could suck balls? I don’t know. I don’t even know what that means. I also don’t know what the brewers were thinking when they made this beer. First of all, what the hell is it? Ale aged in oak? Sounds plain enough but I’m sure the boys at ST will manage to put enough sugar in it to make it cloying and undrinkable. Oops, they did it again.

Aroma has a very potent alcohol note with oak. Flavor of vanilla and some caramel. Not very enjoyable

Tap. Aroma boozy and caramelly/sugary, maybe some vanilla that is oddly artificial smelling, and some plastic that matches it. Flavor continues to be a lot of not-too-interesting sweet notes, vanilla, booze, big but not rich malt. Eh.

Bottled@O’Haras. Reddish amber colour, small beige head. Aroma is fruits, alcohol, mild chocolate, some strong dry hops. Flavour is quite much the same. Quite crappy to be honest.

Bottle at post Borefts BF 09 tasting. Red amber, thin beige head. Sweet amber malt in aroma, not sure I like the oak in it. Too woody for me. bit too oaky, sweet, some hop on end.

Pours dark red with a thin white head. Smells of caramel, pepper, roasted malt. Tastes cloyingly sweet and mesy with up front weird bitterness.

This beer prompted me to be completely over the oak-aging phenomenon. Amber pour with ruby highlights and a small white head. Oak, vanilla, sugary malt in the nose. Flavor is very, very oak-y. Dominated by it totally, in fact. Very sweet. Wood, caramel, vanilla. A decent beer, I’m sure, but too much oak.

Bomber, shared with Brenn79, thanks bro. Pours murky burnt orange with a small beige head that collapses into a collar of foam pretty quick. Smells like an over-the-hill barleywine, a smell I don’t care for at all in a beer. I really hate over the top maltiness. Taste is way too sweet and malty, way too oaky. Carbonation is average and the body is full. Not my thing.

Dark red. Smells like plum. No head. Not balanced at all. It just doesn’t work. Very strong alcohol. Dominant oak flavor. It just doesn’t work.
