This beer..you can drink it 10,000 different times and pick up something else that you like about it every time you drink it. I highly suggest drinking this beer if you like a beer that has a hint of Oak and a smooth after taste, also try this with any kind of buttery meal (Ie a steak with butter on it or a pork chop with mash potatoes and butter)...Cheers

Thin head on a clear bright golden body. Aroma is a touch mild with oak and cedar wood dominating with notes of grain, orange and pale malt. Flavor is very bourbon or whiskey like just less sharp with oak in the finish. Imagine a whiskey that doesn't make take you back that you can take a mouthful of as oppose to sip. Smoothness of a nicely aged bourbon. Light to medium body and light carbonation. As a whiskey drinker this beer is both intriguing, memorable and tasty.

Poured from a 750ml bottle into an imperial pint glass.

A: The beer is a bright amber color, with a large off-white head that fades quickly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains caramelized malts, vanilla, toffee, honey and a little bit of hops.

T: The taste starts out sweet with flavors of vanilla, toffee, caramel and honey. Then a hearty but not too heavy malt character comes in along with the essence of oak barrel aging. The hops presence is mild but complementary and brings some balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, decent kick, good representation of style, it’s a good beer but considering the price there are better alternatives that are similar and less expensive.

I bought two bottles of this at a small store in Chester, VT.
The man at the counter suggested it as a solid Oak aged brew.

It pours a nice cream soda kind of light brown color. Not much carbonation of lacing in its appearance. Im guessing this was on the shelves for a while before I got to it.

The smell was pretty nice. Unique, oaked barrel smell. Belgian yeast? A little bit of a sweet sugary smell.

The man behind the counter also recommended drinking this with food, so I did. It was a nice. An oak taste with caramel in the background.
I wish this wasn't in a white bottle however. I can definitely taste the typical "skunked" taste from being in a white bottle.
I feel like this would be better if it came in a darker bottle, shielded from the light.
