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 poured into glass. Big Big thanks to Randy (the future) for breaking this bottle out. I had no idea that a wheat wine could smell and taste so delicious. White chocolate spot on! Super easy to drink, ABV masked extremely well. Everything works in harmony together perfectly! Can’t wait to try this again.

What a contrast to Black Tuesday, but just as delicious. Poured a sip by a guy on St. Patrick’s Day 2014 at a local bottle shop! What a surprise!!!

pours a nice light tan color. Nose is incredible with notes of toasted chocolate. The taste is just unbelievably like white chocolate with some caramel and whiskey in the finish.The 14% alcohol is barely noticable. Wow. This beer tastes exactly how the name describes. Unreal!! it tastes and smells like WIlly Wonka’s factory. Just delicious. I have found my new favorite beer. Would buy a case and drink forever and ever!!!

The smell gives off coconut, biscuit, vanilla and a strong chocolate finish. There is no booze on the aroma. Big vanilla and chocolate flavors dominate this beer (just like the name says). Like the aroma there is a biscuit and coconut aftertaste. Surprisingly smooth, there is a little alcohol bite on the back end. This is one sweet beer. Don’t try to finish this bottle in one shot or you will be sorry. A good beer to share with some friends. This beer has a fantastic creamy mouthfeel. It really is like drinking White Chocolate. Typical little or no carbonation. This beer is fairly thick and sticky. If you are a fan of the sticky sweet beers, this beer is for you. Amazing flavor profile coupled with a unusual mouth feel make this beer a winner in my book. The longer I held onto it and let it warm up the better it got.

Omg. This stuff is amazing. Pours golden brown with a thin white head and a carb fountain that doesn't stop. The nose is exactly as the name implies, white chocolate, vanilla, whiskey booze greatness. Taste is ultra sweet but the bitter balance is there. It's so decadent. Mouthfeel is crisp and sticky coating. The body is like a hulking gorilla and the finish lasts forever. Amazing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750ml bottle pours bright orange pour light tan head. Bourbon oak vanilla and white chocolate aroma. Great taste. White chocolate cookie taste. Once it warms the boozy bourbon comes out but still big chocolate coconut and vanilla.

Bottle from my Summer Secret Santa 2013, big thank you. Hazy orange golden color with huge white head. Aroma of malt, white chocolate, vanilla. Sweet malty taste, wit vanilla, white chocolate, loads of white chocolate, caramel, coconut, bourbon, wood. Alcohol is strongly present. Extremely tasty, full bodied unusual beer.

Bottle... This beer rocks!… Pours cloudy and amber with no head. The amazing aromatics are a wet-dream of warm, melted cocoa butter poured gently into a mixing bowl with several fresh, sticky, crushed vanilla beans and a healthy splash of Pappy Van Winkle Family Reserve 20-Year. Just outstanding. Full-bodied and viscuous with laid-back carbonation. The flavor makes me imagine a box of liquor-filled white chocolate bottles enriched with crushed vanilla and bursting with Pappy 20-Year. So rich - so sweet - so warming. The experience is neatly wrapped up in a warming, white chocolate and vanilla finish. Amazing sweetness without being cloying. Amazing whiskey warmth without being boozy. Bravo Bruery and thank you biggsbowler!
