Amber pour. Good clarity. Nose has a lot of light vineousness. Oak here is less vanilla and more butter. Reminds me of some heavily oaked Chardonnays I’ve had. Some almost ashy character has also come out into the wood. The oak has added a lot of character but there’s a raw sort of pencil shaving like woodiness in there as well. The sweetness of the base beer is still there. It’s kind of interesting in a not all that good way. cfrancis (3584) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 12, 2016
Pours dark orange with a frothy off white top. Aroma is light oak and toffee with some sweetness. Taste is creamy mouthfeel, Smoother than the original with a touch of oak and a nice warming sweetness from the malt. czar (9494) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 6, 2016
pours hazy bright copper, orange-red tint, with a creamy light beige head offering some retention and lacing. fruity caramel malts - berries, dense toffee, vanilla oak pellets/chips, faint grassy and herbal notes, minerals. moderate carbonation, light body - oily; semi-sweet woodsy finish. definitely not barrel-aged - dusty oak vanilla chips. o-k.

Muskoka Oak Aged Cream Ale 5%
A reddish Amber with a thick light beig cheat of foam. The aroma is oaky perfumey with burnt rubber? The taste is sweet, maple and ash. This seems past it's best, no wonder it was on sale.

750ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a 2 finger thick beige frothy head. Thick patchy lacing all around. Has a dark golden amber appearance. Has a sweet bready malt aroma. Flavours are mainly of the malt variety, toasty and bready malt notes. Has a little bit of the smokey oak hints but mostly in the finish. Has a smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Not much of a huge difference from the normal cream ale.

Malts caramels avec une touche vanillée/douce. La barrique me donne cet effet? Sans doute. Quelle idée surprenante que de mettre en fût ce type de bière. Enfin, chacun a droit à son opinion. En ce qui me concerne, je trouve cette bière tout à fait ennuyante. Un gros bof comme dirait les Kazakhs. Lubiere (14182) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 9, 2016
A golden ale with a thin off white head. In aroma, faint malt and mineral notes. In mouth, light caramel malt with light oak barrel, boring. On tap at Wellington Gastropub. Metalchopz (3584) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 22, 2016
Enjoyed at Beer Brothers and also purchased a bottle from the LCBO. Pours a clean golden-amber with an orange-like colour. The head is off-white and gives nice lacing. Fruity nose with caramel malts, a mix of oak and hops. There is though, a plastic kind of aroma, almost like paint thinner. The oak is mostly in the taste giving some woodiness over the caramel and resulting in hints of vanilla. The hop is a little strong for the style, overpowering the oak. A nice overall brew, when not stirred to not release the plastic notes. superterp (9) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 20, 2016 does not count
This is my favorite beer made better. The oak brings a new layer to the taste of the cream ale without overpowering it at all. This beer drinks really special, like champagne. jksipa (1022) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 17, 2016
Bottle from the LCBO. Clear medium copper under a long lasting rocky off white head that leaves lots of patchy lace. Nose is caramel, light pear, vanilla and some light wood. Flavour is light+ sweet caramel with a light bitterness and a bit of fresh woody spice from the oak. Mouth is medium-and creamy with average carbonation and a lengthy lightly bitter finish. The oak adds a bit to the base, but just a bit.
