Not too sure on the style, but ChurchKey had it classified this way, so I’ll go with that. Poured a hazy chestnut brown. The nose had plenty of oak alongside some very sweet malt. Also there was toasted malt, caramel, toffee, and a bit of vanilla. Served on cask, so the mouthfeel was quite creamy and low in bubbles, as to be expected. High drinkability--this was the first beer I’d had from Pratt Street and I will definitely seek out more.

Cask @ DuClaw RAF 09, several samples, my fave at the fest. Thin creamy tan head, i do beleive this brew was the best carbontaed brew at the fest. Soft and spritely, silky on the palte with some woody prickleyness. Lightly hazy brown in color. Lots of lumber in the nose, gently fruity with notes of vanilla and caramel malts. Lucious wood flavors, vanilla and earthy flavors, leafy with a soft maltiness. Just a really nice brew, highly quaffable which is what i did. scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 23, 2009
Growler (from cask). Dark brown, thin tan creamy head. Bold oak aromas warm to soft swirls of toasty vanilla, toffee, and hints of earthed citrus. Roasted brown toffee malt and vanilla wood flavors balance well on back end earthy hop bitterness. Light to medium bodied, cask-like carbonation, dry wooden bittersweet finish. Great expansion on an already solid base beer. Should be considered for draft status more often... cgarvieuk (25742) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 11, 2010
CASK at BSF GBBF 2010 ... dark brown ... odd medicinal melon nose ... ah its fresh oak... its much fresher than most oak beers... like walking though an oak wood ... soft toffee very oaky ... juicy and quite unusual ... i like the fresh oak. katrinaez (2196) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 7, 2017
Nice style. Good medium light bourbon aroma. Not heavy. Taste is good with malts and bourbon light combo. Thick medium mouthfeel. Tap at brewery.

Cask, GBBF 10. Dark brown with a beige foam. Aromas are oak and citrus caramel and toffee malts. Some barnyard notes. Malty and fruity. Flavours are sweet toffee and chocolate malts with citrus. Woody with alcohol on the finish. Bitter on the aftertaste. thebeertourist (5189) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 4, 2010

Clear brown beer. Tiny cream head. Light dry palate. Sourish yeasty start but thn some vanilla oak balances things well. Slight bitter aftertaste. Unusual abnd interesting.
Tap. Pours clear, nutty brown with average off-white head; decent retention and some lacing. Aroma is bourbon, brown sugar, cookie malt, figs, light oak, and earthy hops. Flavor is balanced malt and hops with some dark fruit esters; bourbon undertones with a dry, semi-sweet finish. Medium body, carbonation, and warmth.
