Draft. Poured into a 10 oz tulip glass a hazed orange amber color with a 1 finger head that settles after a couple minutes and leaves nice sticky lace. The oak is really present in the nose along with some minimal cinnamon type notes. Sweet start of cinnamon, apple, pear, and oak. Ends fairly dry. An interesting beer and one in which I think the barrel adds a new layer of complexity. Some florals and slight black pepper as well. Medium mouthfeel.
