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, 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.

Sample at first sunday. From the name I was expecting a sweet chocolate bomb. When I took my first sip though this is a much more subtle, sweet, malty and caramel sort of drink. Syrupy, a little alcohol burn on the back end of the palate. Coconut and honey sweetness for sure.

Shared large 2014 bottle. Pours slightly hazy, light orange-amber with a decent head. Odd but not unappealing fruity and chocolaty aroma. Tart fruit and chocolate flavor. Very tart. Overall: unusual.

(Dgustation avec kzeon et yourilevesque. Merci Alex pour le partage! Vintage 2014) Le liquide est assez mince lorsque vers dans nos verres. La mousse est fugace. Au nez, limpression de chocolat blanc est bien relle mais devient inquitante lorsque mlange avec ces parfums boiss un peu suret. Au got, les saveurs sucres et surettes ne me plaisent pas particulirement. Et que dire de tout cet alcool... En bouche, le liquide montre un corps plutt faible pour le style avec un ptillement plutt doux. La finale est chaude et piquante. Difficile boire. Intressante exprience mais pas dans mes cordes.

Un trs grand merci Alexandre pour le partage! Unique en son genre, ce vin de malt prsente une couleur ambre et une tte fine mais persistante. Une attaque de cacao et de vanille ou lalcool occupe une place importante. Jadore cette contradictoire dualit entre ce que je vois et ce que je hume. Leffet chocolat blanc est parfaitement russi! Le liquide est mince et vineux d un vident vieillissement en barriques de vin blanc. Encore une attaque chocolate et vanille sur fond malt et clair. Jaime tre tant dstabilis car lensemble est cohrent et brass avec intelligence. Curieusement plutt courte en bouche, la finale est longue en alcool.

750 ml waxed bottle shared with a friend. 2014 edition from Preserve Society. Not infected thankfully. Hazy golden orange with off-white head. Aromas of white chocolate, cocoa, caramel, some booze. Tastes of caramel, big booze, toffee, oaky bourbon. Medium body with a dry finish. Nice aroma, too much booze on the taste

Thanks cards04 for sharing. Murky orange body not much head at all. Odd but appealing aroma of white chocolate but also tart and oaky. Cereal and vanilla. Taste is oaky tart Touch of citrus grains. Touch of booze but abV well masked for the high abV.

Pours a dark honey colour. Aromas are insane. Lots of white chocolate, vanilla, honey, very decadent aromas. Flavours are sweet white chocolate, vanilla, honey, booze, and a sour finish.. Which I found odd but not unpleasant. It balances the sweetness nicely.
