ChadPolenz (1800) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - AUG 15, 2016
2015 BJCP Category: 33A Wood-Aged Beer (base style: 16C Tropical Stout)

AROMA: Sweet dark malt and fruits; whiskey note in the background. 9/12

APPEARANCE: Dark brown to black; fairly clear with no highlights. Small, tan, soapy head mostly evaporates. 1/3

FLAVOR: Quite sweet with smooth dark grain flavors and restrained bitterness. Some cola-like taste and sweetness. Slightly chocolaty. Whiskey-soaked oak chips impart only faint flavor and mostly on the end. Some toffee notes as well. No hop presence. 16/20

MOUTHFEEL: Medium bodied with low carbonation and watery texture. Very smooth with clean aftertaste; no alcohol presence. 3/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: As a stout it’s pretty good, but the wood aging doesn’t do much for it. Sweet for a stout (but not cloying). 7/10

TOTAL SCORE: 36/50

PeatyPete (1048) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 8, 2016
Almost black coloured beer with cream-colored head. Aroma of wood with a hint of whiskey. Taste of vanilla, sweet barley and wood.

3.3
chinchill (4909) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 7, 2016
330 ml bottle purchased and consumed in Stirling, Scotland. Wood and whisky notes compose the aroma and are a little more prominent in the flavor than is the base Scottish stout. Too sweet. Decent aftertaste. Good tan head. Overall: disappointing.

Nagy, tartós, bézs színű hab, egészen sötétbarna szín. Feketecsokis, pörkölt malátás illat, némi hordós, whisky-s aromával kiegészülve. Édes, feketecsokis, whiskey-s, enyhén hordós ízvilág. Testes, enyhén szénsavas, finom desszertsör.

Pours a two finger light tan head that fades slowly leaving a good lace. Black color, no highlights. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Light roasted malt and whiskey nose, flavor is dark roasted malt, vanilla and very smooth. $3.60 for a 330ml bottle from Colonial Spirits Acton, MA.
