Palme (4824) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 18, 2011
0.33l bottle. Pours a clear caramel brown body with a light red hue and a small off-white bubbly sidesticking head. Aroma is wood, lots of sweet caramel and toffee, raisins and some hints of butter. Average carbonation, has a oily to sticky mouthfeeling and medium-bodied. Tastes really caramel sweet and it has a mild and light hedge-hopy note. Ends with a massive sweet caramel finish AND aftertaste. For me this is a classic. KingCecil (2088) - DENMARK - JUL 14, 2011

Bottle. Pours clear amber with a medium white head. The aroma is light fruity with some hoppy and caramel notes. The flavour is sweet malty with notes of oak, vanilla and fruit. McBootie (10) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 27, 2011
Nice amber red beer with a tight, but fading head. The nose is caramel, vanilla and soft oak. Pretty sweet - I like it so far. The palate is a bit oily with a caramel malt flavour that is surrounded by vanilla and a sweet oaky touch. A bit overly sweet and unbalanced, but I enjoyed it. desertblues (24) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 24, 2011
Pours a light amber with a thin head. Vanilla fudge and honey with a rather cloying finish. Won’t be revisiting this one.

Bottle 33 cl. I really don’t like the aroma, it’s a lot like Corona or another golden thirst-quenching pale lagers. I also don’t like the taste, it’s sweet malty, with hints of honey and cream and I really don’t like it. I won’t drink this again. stravale (3145) - Co. Westmeath, IRELAND - JUN 13, 2011
Clear amber beer, with deep frothy white head. Strong aroma on release of cap that dissipates. Aroma of oak wood, sweet caramel malt, slight herbs. Not much hop presence. Taste of sweet fudgey malt, honey. vanilla, oak, bit of butterscotch. Lively carbonation, smooth drinking, medium body. Finish is short sweet malt, then a lingering slight bitter metallic note which spoils the finish. I get the impression that the underlying beer (before it’s oak -aged) is rather average. Gets tiresome by the end of the bottle. Geokkjer (7647) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 12, 2011
Bottle.Pours light amber with a white head.Aroma of grassy hops, honey, vanilla and oak.Flavor is toffee, vanilla and malt with some woody notes.Medium body, average carbonation. BarossaLuke (552) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 8, 2011
This beer certainly lives up to its name. The oak characteristic is quite prominent with lots of vanilla and scotch aromas. there is a good malt profile here to back up the oak flavour, but it is the oak that stands out, maybe a little too much. Vaiz (4460) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUN 6, 2011
Bottle at home. Clear deep golden to copper pour, thin white head. Aroma of vanilla, caramel, toffee, some butter and a hint of whipped cream. Flavor is smokey, very smooth malt whisky, vanilla and oak. Very nice and smooth.
