3.86/5 rDev -5.9%
Enjoyed in a pint glass
A - Reddish-Brown, slightly cloudy with an 1/2 inch oatmeal colored head. Thin, but long lasting lacing.
S - Toasted Malts, Oak, dried fruits, and hints of citrus.
T - Toasted Malts, dried fruits with plenty of oak.
M - Medium-full mouth feel, with a bitter hops, alcohol, & oaky finish
O - This big beer has tons of flavor with plenty of alcohol and oak. Still quite enjoyable and easy to drink. Not exactly a session beer, but it will be finding its way back into my fridge soon.

Had at the Stone Tap Takeover in Charlotte. 2006 Vintage on French Oak Chips. Served from tap into a tumbler. Poured a deep red-orange with a minimal off-white head. There was no lacing evident throughout. The aroma was comprised of malt and smoked wood. The flavor was comprised of a big hop and alcohol up-front with a subtle woody earthiness on the followthrough. It had a medium feel on the palate with low carbonation. Overall the hop and alcohol up front on this one were kind of overwhelming for me. The subtle woody note did help to bring my palate back down to Earth but just barely. Just too much of the upfront flavors to allow the true nature of the original brew to shine through.

Another bottle, enjoyed by myself. You have to like Stone's painted bottles.
Poured slightly cloudy, reddish mahogany brown, with a thin, cream colored head. Good retention, thin coating lace.
Smell had lots of bready malts, some sweetness but then lots of citrus hops. Nice wafting aroma of oak wood barrel.
Taste starts with some caramel sweetness, slightly fruity. Lots of bitter hops, earthy and leafy. Then comes the wood, touch of vanilla, nice oaky finish.
Medium to full body, medium carbonation, smooth, oak flavor hangs around giving a slightly oily mouthfeel.
Lots of flavor, but still easy to drink, no hint of the 10+ % alcohol.
