Nate (3648) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 21, 2014
On tap at Twisted Jimmys. Light sweet malty aroma with hints of oak and cherry skins. Mild caramel, cocoa, soap. Dark ruby brown clear with thin head. Medium-heavy body with medium-light carbonation. Starts sweet with alcohol, cherry, tannins, and salty quality. Light cocoa finish and back of my tongue feels like I just finished a cherry Sucrets lozenge. Not much oak presence.

Pours mahogany into a Trappist glass. Vanilla head with medium retention recedes to hug rim. Caramel aromas. Thick and sweet with vanilla and caramel front to back. Warm lasting toffee and bourbon finish.

BillWyce (698) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 29, 2014
Pours hazy chestnut brown with a small, thin tan head that was gone quickly. Aroma of nutty malt with a notable woody note. Full body, just a touch syrupy, with a light astringency in the finish. Nutty malt flavor with a woody note, as well as some cocoa at the back.

A nice barrel aged beer. Forgot what oak aged (without bourbon etc) beers tasted like. Nice strong woody aroma with nut, toffee and caramel. A little weak but decent. Pour was a nice dark brown with a one finger off white head. Taste was a nice mix of caramel malt, toffee and oak. Almost tastes like my mouth may have splinters in it it’s so woody. Mild carbonation. Hides alochol dangerously well. Good beer

Tap. Brown pour with off white head. Smells of dark malts and sweetness. Tastes of the same. A little thin but not bad ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Jesterdeal (1801) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - MAY 18, 2014
Bottle from Wineworks. Aroma is mostly oak with notes of maple candy, garbage, and caramel. Pours dark dull brown with a medium bubbly white head. Taste is oak forward, chocolate, rotten oranges, and maple syrup. Overly sweet and the oak flavoring is just off-putting. This was a miss.

This one poured a reddish brown color with a beige head. Aroma was of green hops, caramel, maple and toast. Flavor was similar, a typical ASA< but well balanced between hops and malt, maple is there and alcohol is hidden well. Pretty solid.

kramer (4866) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 17, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear dark brown body with a minimal fizzy off-white head that quickly receded to a thin ring. The nose is pretty big and intense, lots of caramel and nutty maltiness with a little light roast and an almost coffee like note. The oak is fairly light on the aroma, but there’s a touch of it, and it seems to work pretty well with the nutty qualities and the slight bit of alcohol. The flavor isn’t as wonderful as I was expecting from the nose. It’s decent though, lots of sweet toasty, caramel, and nutty maltiness up front. Finishes with just a hint of oakiness and some minimal alcohol. This actually gets a bit better as it warms up from cellar temp, getting a little more nutty and showing some coffee notes. Medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation and a long lingering finish. Pretty decent beer.

Ughsmash (7097) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 11, 2014
Bottled. Poured deep, chocolatey brown with a short-lived khaki head. The aroma was very sweet with vanilla, molasses, and oak leading.. oak and earthy hops accented.. this came across too sweet. The flavor found very sweet molasses, nutty notes, and some bready malt at the core, with lightly tangy oak and berry notes around.. became more cloying on the finish, with lots of sweets and some sticky, sharper bitterness. Medium-bodied and silky across the middle of the palate.. too sharp around, with OK transitions at best.. this was a bit of a mess.

Pours murky brown with little head. Huge vanilla and caramel notes throughout. Sweet finish.
