UPDATED: NOV 5, 2012 After sampling a bunch of Oakshire’s brews, this was my favorite. It is brand new, ready to ship for the Winter season. I think they had just tapped it before I showed up at the brewery. As fresh as it gets. Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - APR 25, 2010
22oz bottle shared by DuffManSW. Rating #16. Murky dark brown pour with a light tan head. Odd aroma, light caramel and a little chocolate, but there’s something else I can’t put my finger on. Roasty dark chocolate flavor with a little bitterness in the end, not bad. (1199) beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - JAN 1, 2009
On tap pours dark brown with a smooth beige head. Nicely hopped up brown ale. Thin bodied, nutty flavor, soft caramel, citrus floral hop finish. I didn’t really care for this on the first sip, but this really grew on me thoughout the pint. Reid (2605) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JAN 14, 2010
22oz bomber from the Roths market close to my apartment in Salem.
Nice looking beer againhazelnut brown with a very nice looking cream coloured head.
The aroma however is rather more subdued than i imagined it would be mainlly biscuity malts..rather odd as i did not chill this at all.oh well.
Taste is better thankfully full of toffee, caramel, roasty maltiness with a delicious hop bite at the end to finish it off with a bit of spice.
Nice palate to this one,quite silky and thick.
Overall another intresting and good beer from a smaller Oregon brewery. Fatehunter (2603) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - DEC 11, 2016
Pours a finger and half of head on a brown body. Aroma is caramel and lemon. Taste has mild caramel, dark fruit sweet. There’s an odd bitterness in the middle. Texture is thicker.

Draught. Poured red black with thin fast dissipating head. Aroma is hop citrus, toffee and smoke. Medium to light body. More toffee and sweet malt. Lasting finish, with enough hop to keep from being sicky sweet. beersearcher (2382) - Glendale, California, USA - FEB 21, 2010
cloudy cola color. aroma is minimal. roasty notes. heavy with alcohol that easily slides down the throat. good malt taste. sampled at Cabo Taco Winter Warmer Fest 2010. robforbes (2261) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - OCT 27, 2012

Chestnut red. Thick and powdery in texture. A surpringly hard hit of bitterness in this nutty beer. Some toffee roastiness. A long chocolatey finish and hints of dried fruit. S’OK. Arayaga2 (2247) - portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 1, 2013
