16th August 2008. Clear pale brown beer. Sweet with lots of vanilla and a little oak. Just a touch of hops buried under the vanilla. AR (1000) - Georgia, USA - NOV 15, 2009
This is quite a unique tasting beer. It is thick and syrupy. The flavor is a heavy malt, tasting like hard butterscotch candy. Very sweet, oozing with honey. BeerChaser0078 (909) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 11, 2009
Bottle. Clear amber pour with a short lived white head. Aroma has notes of honey, caramel, vanilla, butterscotch and malt. Flavour isn’t as sweet as the aroma but is otherwise almost identical, the vanilla notes imparted by the oak standing out even more. Light bodied, with a smooth mouthfeel and a short dry finish, this is an alright beer but pretty thin for an ESA. Pleasant but wouldn’t drink more than one in a sitting.

bottle. Pale golden amber color, short thick foamy off-white head. Aroma is whiskey and butter, oak chips, some toffee and crystal malt, butterscotch too. Flavor is different, starts dry,woody, and skunky then toffee/crystal malt. Some whiskey & water, lots of carbonation, and a skunkwatery finish. Oaky bitter aftertaste. mcberko (17854) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 19, 2009
330mL bottle - pours golden with a minimal white head. Aroma vanilla, oak and butterscotch. Flavour is a weak combination of these. Slight bitterness at the end. Quite dull / boring for all that’s in it. Drinkable, but nothing special.

I would have to say his is one of the most unique beers I;ve had. Every flavr is over the top. Oak,vanilla, butterscotch. Not to mention the sweetness of honey. Aroma of skunk or wet ashtry,but sweet. Hermod (7936) - Vantaa, FINLAND - OCT 14, 2009
Bottle ,Alko. Amber color, caramel aroma. Sweet taste, toffee and vanilla. TeamTrappist (832) - jericho, New York, USA - OCT 14, 2009
Bottle. Poured a amber blonde witha foamy head. Light honey and caramel nose. Slightly creamy mouthful with some sweetness and light hops. Some oak notes and pretty smooth. The barrel aging adds to the mix but the base beer is only decent. gyllenbock (9184) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 7, 2009
The flavor is very sweet, with hints of caramel, honey, vanilla and a little malt.
To sweet for my taste, also a little thin.
Must say that I quickly "got tired" of the beer.
