bhensonb (14332) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 19, 2011
Bomber from Oak Tree. Pours hazy dark ruddy amber with no real head. Aromas of brown sugar, dark fruit, a little hop, and arguably vanilla and oak. Med plus body. It starts sweet, moves towards dark fruit, shifts to oaky astringency. The finish is fairly dry and oaky, though the sugar sort of hangs around. Pretty good stuff.
