""""For 30 days this honey-hued beer sleeps in hand selected oak barrels, locked inside a bonded warehouse, gradually assimilating the subtle flavours that reside in the wood. Barrels are then emptied and maturation continues for a further 47 days in a marrying tun where these natural flavours infuse and fall into perfect balance. This 77-day process is unique and produces a delicious, refreshing beer: Aromas of vanilla and toffee, hints of citrus, with a malty, lightly oaked,palate. Deftly balanced and light in texture, soothing and warming in the finish.""""

Bottle into willibecher. Not very carbonated at all. Im a carpenter, so the familiar oak aroma is certainly evident along with the malty sweetness. Same with the flavor... Ive inhaled more oak sawdust than is acceptable, but thankfully Ive been retired for a few years and can enjoy it now. Not too sweet, not too fruity, well balanced and clean. This is one I could have a few of, if it didnt remind me so much of being back in the shop. Next time, Ill go for the rum barrel version. Good ale.

Acaro (119) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAR 29, 2017
Aroma: Pretty strong wood and cereal notes. Appearance: Dark ambar/brown color with clear liquid and minimal white head. Taste: Medium sweetness with light bitter notes. Palate: Medium body with oily liquid and flat carbonation. Long sweet woody finish. Overall: Somehow I like it more than the "rum flavour" but it has ups and downs. Definetely winter beer next to a fireplace.

Svesse (8359) - Hsselby, SWEDEN - MAR 14, 2017
(Draught at Bishops Arms Folkungagatan, Stockholm, 11 Feb 2017) Copper colour with dense, off-white head. Malty nose with notes of caramel, oak wood, dried fruit, apricots and slightly buttery malt. Malty taste with caramel, treacle-toffee, dried fruit, orange peel, oak wood, chocolate and a gentle bitterness. Medium body, with a certain sweetness. Tasty, but a but unfocused and fairly sticky. Quite enjoyable.

19Oracolo78 (172) - ITALY - MAR 12, 2017
Birra dal colore ambrato. Schiuma fine ma poco persistente. Allolfatto frutta candita, vaniglia e malto tostato. Al palato corposa con note di malto tostato, legno e caramello. Birra che rimane poco amara, ma ho fatto fatica a mandarla gi.

Bouteille achete chez Intercaves. Cette bire est beaucoup moins intressante que ses petites soeurs vieillies dans divers fts...

Bottle picked up at the COOP.. Pours clear orange with a thin off white head... nose and palate both carry light vanilla and hints of toffee that are accentuated by residual maltiness.

Clear amber color with minimal off white foam. Aromas of sweet malts, caramel, dried fruits and seeds but fairly week. Palate, medium body, smooth texture leaving sweet finish. Taste, sweet of caramelt malt, scotch and rye bread. Overall, nice beer, sweet and tasty, but for some reson not outstanding. Still nice beer.

Alebarasi (85) - Dobrova, SLOVENIA - FEB 12, 2017
Pours clear light copper color with a thin off white head. Medium body, low carbonation. Classic lager-like and floral aroma with hints of wood, malts, caramel, vanilla and toffee. A bit watery taste of whiskey, toffee, vanilla, oak, honey, grains, malts, biscuits, coconut and spices. Dry aftertaste. Decent balance. Enjoyable one.
