Strong boozy smell. Oak and caramel. Pours opaque brown. Flavor is complex and well ballanced, but not my favorite style.

Not sure what I was expecting here. Typically Oaked anything IPA is not going to work Well. Upon pouring, An Amber color. On first taste a bit of hops and then the malt and peated oak hits you. Maybe a bit of eye in there as well. Not bad but interesting beer for sure.

BlackBeerPG (468) - Darien, Illinois, USA - NOV 9, 2016
Taste: big roasted malt, earthy hops, bold oak notes with clean finish. Complex woody oak nose. Copper color, semi clear, with tan foamy head with some lace even for an oak ale. Full body. Alcohol sneaks up on you and you also dont taste that the IBUs are at 100.

muzzlehatch (4914) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 8, 2016
22 ounce bottle from Badger Spirits in Beloit, WI, served a few minutes out of the fridge into a pint glass. A good-sized off-white fine-bubbled head diminishes slowly atop a cloudy-yeasty dark amber body...the nose is oaky-woody, dry and offering light touches of vanilla and dried fruits; so far this looks and smells much more like an ESB than a typical IPA, though with a few minutes nosing a hint of citric hops shows up alongside the wood and resin...body is lightly to moderately sweet and reminds me instantly of butterscotch, its got that combination of sweetness and burnt butter or milk; malts come out fairly quickly and the middle portion is pleasing in its balance with growing bitter dry hops...finish is fairly bitter, drier though still retaining a bit of sweetness, and a touch tart...very full, lightly yeasty throughout, moderately carbonated. This is really great stuff and exactly what Id imagine a hybrid ESB-IPA to taste like; not that they call it that, but thats what it comes off as to me. Its a bit rich and unusual for prolonged drinking IMO, but if this is available in 16 oz cans Ill be grabbing some for sure.

superspak (5126) - Michigan, USA - SEP 29, 2016
22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 6/9/2016. Pours slightly hazy deep orange/copper color with a 1-2 finger dense and rocky light khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of big grapefruit, orange peel, peach, pear, pineapple, light pepper/pine, vanilla, caramel, toffee, toasted oak, brown sugar, biscuit, light nuttiness/roast, herbal, floral, light grass, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/earthy hops, fruity yeast, oak, and dark/bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big grapefruit, orange peel, peach, pear, pineapple, light pepper/pine, vanilla, caramel, toffee, toasted oak, brown sugar, biscuit, light nuttiness/roast, herbal, floral, light grass, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Light-moderate herbal/pine bitterness and oak spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, orange peel, peach, pear, pineapple, vanilla, caramel, toffee, toasted oak, brown sugar, biscuit, light nuttiness/roast, herbal, floral, and yeast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/earthy hops, fruity yeast, oak, and dark/bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitter/spiciness balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light dryness from bitter/spiciness, lightly increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and medium-full body; with a very smooth, creamy/silky, and lightly sticky/tannic mouthfeel that is awesome. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming for 8.2%. Overall this is an outstanding oak aged English DIPA! All around awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/earthy hops, fruity yeast, oak, and dark/bready malt flavors; with smooth and easy to drink for the ABV. Very unique for the style, but very complex from the prominent oak influenced flavors. A highly enjoyable offering.
