The aroma is bread and butter, some oak. The appearance is a clear dark yellow/amber, white head. The flavor is butterscotch, toffee. the finish is a mild hop bitering, mainly noble hops. Decent. rugbydude05 (478) - Bridgewater, NJ, New Jersey, USA - MAR 21, 2010
12 oz bottle, honey-golden appearance with little head. No lacing on the sides of the glass. Aroma is sweet with hints of honey, vanilla, and maltiness, also mixed in with some doughyness reminiscent of a pale lager. Spicyness also present. Taste is sweet and honeylike along with sharp bitterness, but not as complex as the aroma would suggest. Palate is smooth and sits well on the tongue. Not a bad beer. beelsebob (35) - Cupertino, California, USA - MAR 20, 2010
The only bad thing I can say about this beer is that it has a rather thin head that disapears quickly. Other than that, itís got a lovely colour, it smells faintly of a lovely scotch, and tastes of it moreso, strong tastes of oak and butterscotch. Itís just awesome to behold! brentfeesh (1208) - Mansfield, Ohio, USA - MAR 18, 2010
Bottle purchased in Atlanta, Ga. Carbonated, copper pour with a nice lasting head. Buttery aroma but also somehow sharp at the same time. Who still bottles in a clear bottle? 77 days in the Oak has made this far less horrible than I imagined. Now it is a bit sharp followed by some odd malt flavors, but it is the overwhelming butter level that makes this nasty. There is a touch of dark fruit in there that might be described as bad dates or prunes. Has a bit of alcohol to it as well. Creamy mouth feel and medium body. I could not finish the bottle but I finished my glass. That should be enough to remind me not to get this again. muffel (150) - Lower Saxony, GERMANY - MAR 10, 2010
Bottle 330ml. Pours a clear amber/golden color with a very thin white head. Medium carbonation. Smells a bit hoppy at first and somewhat reminds me of a Pils. Aroma is malty with notes of vanilla, citrus, toffee and oak. Strong frutiness in there as well. A lot less bitter than I thought. Long creamy and sweet finish. Very interesting and refreshing beer.

Bottle. Not very good. Aroma in glass was almost malt liquor. Carbonated fairly heavily, Hints of citrus hops are there but well hidden. Capa (3257) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - FEB 16, 2010
Pours a pretty copper with a white head. Toffee, light caramel, some malts, vanilla, and oak in the aroma. Watery feel to the body. Flavor of light caramel malts, vanilla, some toffee, light oak, and some sweetness to it. A decent brew. jeff789 (1408) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 10, 2010
Pours exactly what you see through the clear bottle with a somewhat sustained white head... Big whiff of vanilla/oak to start with some fruitiness underneath... Big oak flavor, almost scotch/bourbony, malty backbone with some fruits... Mildly dry finish, lingering oakiness, medium bodied, nice beer... Almost too oaky/bourbony, kind of got old before i finished the beer... Very Very one note... Linnet (1813) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - FEB 5, 2010
Amber colour, off-white head.
Ar: Sweet malts, diacetyl, butter, honey, some oak sugar.
F: Same as in the nose, overwhelmingly buttery, toffee, acidity, oak, perfume.
T: Donít like this one, incredibly overrated here in Sweden. bluebetty (1021) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 1, 2010
Bottle.ith Pours a very deep amber with a white creamy head. Minimal lacing. Very nice looking beer in the glass. True to the description huge vanilla aromas along with some bourbon toffee and a little wood. Flavours are much the same as the aromas thought the vanilla is slightly more restrained replaced by malt sweetness. Minimal bitterness. The vanilla makes this slightly one dimensional but never the less a really nice beer.
