Apricot color with a thick, firm, congealed head. Nicely wood-toned nose with breaths of vanillins and essence of syrah. Woody boy again with syrah essence woven throughout. Aftertaste of wine and beer mingled at the end of the night, a slightly unsettling marriage.

Tap at the Cap Hill local...subtle hints at the oak...light notes of vanilla, very gentle and easy over all, but still retains a nice dip into pure satisfaction.

riversideAK (6260) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - APR 6, 2010
Nose is sweet and malty with some bread and fruity notes, a touch of wood and earthy notes as well as light vanilla and perhaps a faint hint of whiskey essence. Pours golden amber with fantastic lace and a creamy head. Sweet, malty, bready, fruity, hint of sugars, peppery hop bitterness, vanilla and dry woody notes. Perhaps some super light whiskey, but its definitely not super apparent, but I am getting it as it continues to warm and it adds an interesting oak/sweet aspect to the beer. Clean sweetness, not cloying, pepper and wood balance out and create a solid enjoyable differentiation on their regular offering.

on tap at Blind TIger. Clear amber in color. Aroma: oak, toasted malts, light caramel, and some earthy hops. Taste is toasted malts, wood, light caramel,and some light earthy hops. On the bland side for a maibock, although I did get some wood in it I didnít think it was a whiskey barrel as I got no JD at all in this.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 25, 2008
Pours very clear almost a cedary amber/coper, with a lifeless body and almost no head. Aroma is wierd, light woodiness, but not too much fresh oak- almost an older french oak character- JD not really apparent at all- sweet candy sugar, and light toasted malts and some earth. Flavor is a bit bland and lifeless- toastines, light sugar, some caramel, toasted malts, leather, very light vanilla phenols, wood, and again- hardly any JD at all. Mouthfeel is weak and just nohting really going on. Not sure why anyone would age a Maibock.

AmEricanbrew (6878) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - JUN 19, 2008
Clear amber with a frothy head. Malty sweet bread aroma with a whiff of oak and vanilla. Medium/heavy body. Big malty sweetbread bock flavors front to back, with a mild vanilla and wood essence. Sweet ní heavy. Draft @ the Pike Street brewpub 5/27/2008
