Bottle. Pours dark amber brown with light brown head. Nose/taste of sharp oak, vanilla, black walnuts, caramel and dark fruits. The wood and dark walnut/nuts dominate the palate. Finishes dry wood with some vanilla and dark fruits mixed in. Solid beer. scooter520 (185) - - JUL 20, 2012

22oz bottle. Large beige head atop lightly hazed chestnut body. Aroma is moderately sweet, vanilla, some caramel, light alcohol, wood. Taste is moderately sweet, caramel, alcohol, wood, some vanilla. Medium-full body, somewhat sticky. MarkSachon (1023) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 18, 2012
Big bottle from my neighbor Bob - Thanks buddy! Pours rich and heavy with immediate scents of caramel, brown sugar and a profound sense of sweetness. First mouthings reveal a good balance with just the right amount of bitters added to the dominate wood aged taste throughout. My wife shared the bottle and said she really enjoyed it, an unusual comment from someone who prefers things less rich and dark. I would gladly travel to planet Vulcan again for a second tasting. pineypower (3330) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - JUL 17, 2012
Pours out a rootbeer brown color with a big, foamy, off white head. Aroma is of light chocolate, oaky vanilla, some alcohol and fresh plastic. Taste is dark chocolate, some odd earthy notes, liquor soaked cherries, caramel and some light traces of alcohol on the finish.

Dark brown with a thin off white head. Aroma is caramel and oak. It’s slightly peaty as well. Flavor is pretty complex. Big oak flavors with caramel notes. Nice bittersweet finish. Tasty little beer, flavors are bold but pleasant. beernovice39 (3270) - Idaho, USA - JUL 14, 2012

Pours a red-brown with an off white head and aroma of oak and malt. Taste is heavy on the oak, which comes up throughout, as well as toasted malt, fruits, and caramel. Complex brew, solid. jjgmd (2164) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - JUL 10, 2012
Pours a dark mahogany color with a nice tan head. Nose is woody and malty. Taste is malty, a little astringent and woody, but I am not a big fan of casked beers. Finishes on a sweet note. Save the wood aging for wines and whiskies in my opinion. Quaff Score 5/ 10 decaturstevo (6244) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JUL 8, 2012
Hazed brown/red pour with light tan head. Sweet caramel malt with a resiny bump as well. Vanilla, caramel malt, and a resiny bitter finish. Medium body with good carbonation. Well done.
