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.

Bottle. Pours a golden yellow/orange color with a white head. Aroma is filled with white chocolate, but also cocoa nips, vanilla, bourbon, charred oak, wheat, caramel, toffee, sweet sugary notes, almost lactose like milky notes and marzipan. The flavor follows the nose and is quite sweet with sugary notes, lots of white chocolate, toffee, fudge, charred oak, bourbon, cocoa nips, vanilla, wheat, caramel, lactose like notes, marzipan and heat. The body is almost full with a oily and sticky mouth feel. Overall a really nice Wheat Wine, another winner from The Bruery.

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
