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.

Pours a murky orange brown with an off white head. Nose has white chocolate. Light bourbon, caramel malt, sweet dades and stuff. Taste is sweet with malty, boozy, chocolate flavours. Fouthferl is full and the afrtertaste is lingering and savoury. Fun stuff

Pachnie bardzo intensywnie bourbonem, kokosem, wanilią, suszonymi owocami, w smaku bardzo gęsta i oleista faktura, nigdy wcześniej nie spotykana przeze mnie w barley wine’ach nuta białej czekolady, unurzana w likierze owowcowo - waniliowo - kokosowym, alkohol nieźle ukryty. Petarda.

It is complicated to rate this beer. I admire the craftsmanship. But there is more almonds in the taste, rather than chocolate. For a barrel aged beer I did not feel the vanilla. Alcohol is way to dominant. Maybe I am to harsh because I do not like marzipan.

Wanilia, marcepan, lekki kokos, biała czekolada w posmaku, jak dla mnie dobrze ukryte alko, piękne piwo.

Draft. Aroma of alcohol, lots of golden raisins and white wine. Flavor of white wine, especially as the beer warms, and some white chocolate (!), but not really much beyond. No hint of bourbon or barrel-aging. Good for what it is, but not a lot of layers or depth.

Ktwse (4897) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2017
Pours hazy copper amber with low off-white head. Aroma of milk chocolate and vanilla, very sweet nose and a bit of a mindfuck. Taste is sweet, caramel, toffee and booze. Body is rich and creamy with soft carbonation.

More vanilla than chocolate which does indeed give it a "white chocolate" vibe which IMO is not really a positive. More cacao nibs, please! Other than that, it’s rich and smooth and much more complex than real white chocolate.

Ahuth (591) - Illinois, USA - APR 15, 2017
Draft. Pours golden cloudy. The taste is bourbon and some vanilla. Not much of a "chocolate " taste.

3.8
OldGrowth (3474) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - APR 9, 2017
Bottle, from Highcraft Beer Market. 2017 edition 13.8 abv. Good aroma. Sweet, vanilla, bourbon, oak. Tad hazed brownish orange color. Ok head, faded quickly, no lace. Very sweet flavor. Heavy body, thick creamy oily mouthfeel, hot sweet finish. Pretty darn good. You gotta like sweet and oak.

3.8
reebtogi (6280) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 4, 2017
750ml capped bottle pours a pale amber color with 2 fingers of white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is chocolate and vanilla with some bourbon and alcohol notes. Taste is a chocolate malty sweetness with the vanilla and a mild spicy bitterness finishing with bourbon and an alcohol burn. Medium to full bodied with good carbonation. Overall, a nicely crafted brew that is well balanced and unique to the style. Recommended.
