Pours a clear orange with a foamy off-white head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Tiny streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, caramel, and some woody aromas. Taste is much the same with vanilla and woody flavors on the finish. There is a caramel sweetness that lingers on the palate after each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with some nice woody aromas and flavors but the taste is quite sweet and sugary.

Big head and the best lacing of the IG ales in the winter pack. Lovely clear amber with a golden amber color. Malt backbone with a spicy fruitiness in the nose. A light alcohol sweetness. Taste is smooth and malty with an oak and vanilla toffee sweetness. Alcohol and mineral edge in the finish with a mild hoppiness. Feel is medium light with a velvety creamy carbonation and easy drinkability. A good solid malt oriented ale with an oakey twist.

3.86/5  rDev +3.2%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

LOOK: Bright copper colored brew with a light white head. Has a chill haze but mostly clear otherwise.

SMELL: Oak, toffee, vanilla, whiskey.

TASTE: Sweet buttery toffee and vanilla, coming from a very clean dry oak. Nutty maltyness has caramel with just a pinch of tea like noble hops. Not overly cloying, and the vanilla flavor really sticking around long after the sip. Nice dry oak.

MOUTHFEEL: Medium bodied, rich and full. Medium level of carbonation.

OVERALL: A nice little beer with a good dry oak note. I enjoyed drinking this a good bit. Very solid all around beer.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: The beer is crystal clear amber orange in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger and a half high dense white head that gradually died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Pleasant aromas of vanilla from the oak barrel aging are present in the nose.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste is slightly sweet and has lots of vanilla flavors along with notes of toffee and hints of caramel. There are some notes of oak towards the finish.
M: It feels medium-bodied and smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I really enjoyed this beer because it didn't seem as heavy compared to some of the other beers in the style and had lots of vanilla in the smell and taste.
