COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The primary component of our “White Oak” ale is a 100% barrel aged wheat wine that we affectionately refer to as “White Oak Sap.” Essentially a “summer” barley-wine style ale, but made with a wheat heavy grain base, White Oak Sap is aged in used bourbon barrels for nearly a year and comes out rich in flavors of coconut, honey, caramel and vanilla. To compliment the already rich flavors of the beer, we’ve added cacao nibs and vanilla beans to give this beer the delicate flavor of white chocolate…hence the name.
2015 Release = 16.6% ABV. ABV varies by vintage.

This is a good brew. Chocolate toast for sure and quite boozy without the warmpth. The brightness mellows out the acidity and gives way to the semi-sweetness found in the malt. This is an overall wonderful recipe and the vanilla mellows out nicely. Well done.

750ml bottle, 2017 vintage. Rich chocolate aroma with notes of vanilla, caramel, bourbon, honey, wheat malt and some coconut. Pours cloudy, light caramel colored with a thin off white head that has some retention and lacing. Starts with decadent chocolate and caramel with a little bit of wheat malt and honey as well as a smooth mouthfeel and rich, full body. Finishes smooth with excellent vanilla, bourbon and light coconut with a boozy warming ending. Rich, luxurious and delicious.

Bardzo bogaty i intensywny aromat słodowy piwa. Dominuje tytułowa czekolada, wanilia, melasa, miód. Suszone, kandyzowane owoce jak figi, rodzynki. Niuanse beczki charakterystyczne dla dębiny. Mocne, zdecydowanie charakterne w smaku. Dużo czekolady, kokosa fig, miodu. Duża słodowa słodycz, bogate, krągłe ciało. W odbiorze wytrawne, rozgrzewające niczym destylat. Ma w sobie coś co kojarzyć można bezposrednio z bourbonem. Piwo o oleistej teksturze na długie, zimne wieczory.

Wersja 2017. Aromat jest absolutnie obłędny, bardzo intensywna, szlachetna biała czekolada. W smaku niestety jest gorzej. Biała czekolada wciąż mocno zaznacza swoją obecność ale niestety tutaj jest to już trochę mdłe. W dodatku poza tą mdłą białą czekoladą niewiele się dzieje, jest to trochę jednowymiarowe piwo. Niestety też obecny jest wyraźny alkohol który w połączeniu z tą mdłością odbiera znacznie przyjemność z picia tego piwa. Jest to niewątpliwie ciekawe piwo i nic dziwnego że znalazło wielu swoich fanów, mnie niestety absolutnie nie porwało, a mały sampel tego piwa delikatnie mnie zmęczył.

Chalva and white chocolate aroma is AMAZING! Taste is full of white chocolate. It is amazing that somebody achieved that without aromas. Way better than the 2016 vintage tasted at the same time. This is the one I have rated

2016 vintage
Vanilla and sweet tasty milky maltiness and a bit of honey. Very nice fruity raisin taste. Full and lovely warming. Very smooth
