A good beer, but a bit underwhelming when you consider the presentation (not to mention the price). There are hints of vanilla, oak, a little caramel, and other faintly sweet characteristics. But, nothing that really blows you away. This beer was a forgettable execution of a great concept. I think the problem is that oak-aging tend to mellow a beer and soften its flavor, but with this beer the flavors werenít quite strong enough to start with.

Pours a mahogany color. Nose is orange zest, newly mowed grass, caramel, pine cones, dates and hints of lemon tartness. Taste is caramel, grass, honey, pine. Very good aftertaste of bourbon, malt sweetness, figs and some booze.

Pours a cloudy copper on tap with big fluffy off-white head that dissipates to leave moderate lacing. Aroma is faint of bourbon and sweet caramel malts, a hint of toasted oak. Taste is much ballsier, heavy oak and bourbon qualities with a bitter boozy ending. Interesting.

Dried fruit apricot mango, mango juice, finish is bitter. Lighter creamy, long finish that sticks the bitter to the back of your throat. As it warms you get this salted caramel thing going thatís awesome.

3.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Appearance: nice medium dark copper, cream color head.
Nose: vanilla from the oak. Some hops peek through.
Taste: Can definitely pick out oak influence - vanilla, dark caramel. Toasted nuts. Bittering hops balance things out. Not too sweet or overdone. Nice medium mouth feel.
