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, weve added cacao nibs and vanilla beans to give this beer the delicate flavor of white chocolatehence the name.
2015 Release = 16.6% ABV. ABV varies by vintage.

Hand bottled mini sample courtesy of LinusB. Pours tiny hazy deep golden with a very small offwhite head that doesnt leave much trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is intense, malty and sugary with caramel, toffee, vanilla fudge, charred wood, caramelized pecans, roasted coconut, white chocolate, hay, minerals, bourbon alcohol and hints of lemon peal and figs. Taste is sweet, bitter, salty, malty, tiny fruity and boozy. Mouthfeel is soft, round, viscous, syrupy, boozy and medium to full bodied. finish is sweet, bitter and salty with caramel, toffee, salt water, vanilla, white chocolate and bourbon alcohol. Bit too big, boozy and salty but perfect for a 30 ml sample.
