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.

Tasting at Bruce’s pad. Hazy amber beer, small white head. Palate is suprisingly light and crisp. Mild fine carbonation. The promised white chocolate is delivered and whilst it is sweet it isn’t sickly sweet as white chocolate can be. Alcohol spice and a little dried fruits. Nice beer but still more aging would not go amiss.

Big sweet flavor, some alcohol kick, banana, pale toffee. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Warm finish with lots of sugary pale bread, some toffee, apricot, actual white chocolate.
