Found this at my local craft beer spot in Springfield,OH. Was a little concerned how it was gonna be considering age and the clear bottle, so here's the review:

Color: about 14-16 SRM
Appearance: clear and clean, poured a 1 finger head that disappeared quickly.
Smell: sweet, woody
Taste: heavily sweet, woody, malty, scotch notes.
Experience: a pleasant sweet, woody nose dominates this beer and continues through, even lingering after each drink. The oak age gives it a almost scotch feel. As the beer warms it becomes even more smooth on the tongue.

I would have loved to have one of these soon after it was brewed, as I curious how it's aged. But alas I am just lucky I found it before it was gone forever. If you come across one of these pick it up, before age catches up with it, or before it's extinct.
