From tap at Stone Bistro. Pours a clear golden amber with a creamy tan head. Mellowed down in aroma and flavour on malt and bread compared to the none-oaked version, but goes rather smooth and light. Smooth finish too with a mild spice note. Ungstrup (38215) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 1, 2007
Bottled. A dark amber beer with a dark orange head. The aroma is extremely hoppy which gives it strong notes of grapefruit, but it also has strong notes of alchol. The flavor is sweet malty with strong notes of caramel and grapefruit, and only hints of vanilla, leading to a dry bitter end. Nice - but to me the oak notes are too subdued. joergen (28949) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 7, 2007

Bottled. Mahogany colour, small creamy head. Powerful grapefruity hop aroma that collides abrubtly with oak. Sweet and rounded with solid caramelly body. Massively hoppy, citric and grapefruity. The oak and hops bitterness combine to an unpleasantly inky finish. madmitch76 (25230) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2009

Highly hopped ale with a sweet malty finish. The hops are never over bitter and are crisp and refreshing. The oak chips impart a nice subtle vanilla.
