COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The primary component of our “White Oak” ale is a 100% barrel aged wheat wine that we affectionately refer to as “White Oak Sap.” Essentially a “summer” barley-wine style ale, but made with a wheat heavy grain base, White Oak Sap is aged in used bourbon barrels for nearly a year and comes out rich in flavors of coconut, honey, caramel and vanilla. To compliment the already rich flavors of the beer, we’ve added cacao nibs and vanilla beans to give this beer the delicate flavor of white chocolate…hence the name.

(bottle - 750 ml) Hazy orange pour. Lots of malt, white chocolate, dark fruits and bourbon. Flavor is pretty much the same. Dark fruits mixed with sweet white chocolate and a lot of vanilla from the bourbon. Much like a yogurt covered raisin. Sticky sweet but could be good with a few years on it.

Bottle. For me, the smell and taste were the same. White chocolate and raisins. It reminded me of those yogurt covered raisins they had back in the 90’s just with a big alcohol burn. It was to young. I think with a few years on it, it can be great

Pour is a transparent dark amber with a foamy white head. Nose is a fair bit of bourbon, heavy wheat base and odd caramel malt, muddled and dirty with a hint of coconut and notes of milk chocolate. Taste is extremely sweet and not integrated at all. The bourbon is lighter, notes of apple juice and some overly sweet caramel. The chocolate and nib notes are extremely out of place and don’t fit in at all. There is tons of sugar, hints of booziness through the softly carbonated finish. The body is big, soft palate and creamy.

750 ml bottle poured into a mini-snifter. Pours a hazy copper with a white head of foam. The aroma has funky notes of chocolate. On the verge of bad. Thicker body with lower carbonation.

Cool - pralines )thx ferris), really really really white chocolaty. Like crazy. Extra sugar piled on - a liquid sugar, caramel, weak alc, vanilla and honey. Taste is not my thing at all. Way too strong to enjoy, heat, white choco, coconut? (Word of the day), don’t like this at all.
