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.

Tasting at Bruce’s pad. Hazy amber beer, small white head. Palate is suprisingly light and crisp. Mild fine carbonation. The promised white chocolate is delivered and whilst it is sweet it isn’t sickly sweet as white chocolate can be. Alcohol spice and a little dried fruits. Nice beer but still more aging would not go amiss.

brokensail (10530) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 24, 2012
Pours a cloudy golden orange with a small white head. Nose is full of rich vanilla and chocolate. Very sweet with plenty of bourbon, oak, caramel, and toast. The vanilla and chocolate notes are the stars of the beer on the palate as well. Plenty of bourbon/oak flavors with a subtle toasted maltiness. Just a hint of spice and yeast in the background.

Leighton (10419) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2014
Bottle shared in London - many thanks to Manic Mitchell. Pours lightly hazy gold with a fine, white foam head. Odd nose, some dry cocoa, a. It of ripe fruits. Big sweet flavor, some alcohol kick, banana, pale toffee. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Warm finish with lots of sugary pale bread, some toffee, apricot, actual white chocolate. A bit of chalky cocoa. Decent. Pretty drinkable. Like it but it is a bit odd.
