Bottle share (thanks Donnie!) Pours amber color, a little cloudy. Aroma is very oak-y, with a strong alcohol smell. The taste is fairly hoppy and the oak comes through quite a bit in the taste. Good level of carbonation, smooth dry finish. Not bad, although not quite as mellow as I would have thought. Solid beer.

The aroma is really sweet with a hint of wood. Almost peachy. The appearance is murky and carbonated. The taste starts off sweet then rolls into the wooden flavor that finishes sour. The palate is different. Overall, an interesting beer, that I would buy fo sho.

Bottle from Kasey!. Pours red. Nutty rich and caramel malts in the nose along with some sticky orange and resinous like hops with some spicy citrus and floral notes. Flavor is again oranges, floral, grass, spicy hops, with rich malty flavors and noticeable oak barrel and just a hint of vanilla. Full body and a completely dry finish. Nice twist on a west coast red. Enjoyed.

750 ml bottle to oversized snifter. Looks good; a hazy amber with white lacing. Smells and tastes solid; semi-sweet, malty, and woody with a good mouthfeel. Nice.

rbfishstick (141) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 31, 2012
Enjoyed on tap at Sugar Maple. Pours a brownish red with a large white head. It has a mild, hoppy nose and the taste is very hoppy and dry with a hint of plums. Dry finish.

Tap at Sugar Maple. Pours to a red body with a thin tan head. Aromas and flavors seemed to be your typical imperial red ale type. Malts mainly. I didnít get the complexity of herbs or vanilla or oak. Mostly just a hoppy amber ale. The palate was medium bodied. The alcohol was more apparent than Iíd had hoped.
