look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Draft pour into a tulip glass at Beachwood BBQ.
2006 vintage.

A: Slightly hazy, dark reddish-amber color with over one finger of off-white foam head. Moderate lacing remains on the glass.

S: Husky grain, some vinous fruit, and volatile oak are increasingly apparent in the smell of this beer as it warms. No alcohol is explicitly detected in the smell, but may be cleverly disguised alongside the oak.

T: Begins off-dry with caramel malt, brown sugar, and some golden raisins. Oak emerges aggressively in the middle, channeling the qualities of a fine scotch, but without the alcohol burn. The finish is bracingly bitter, accented by the lingering flavor of oak.

M: Medium to thick viscosity, syrupy on the palate, with low carbonation. The smoothness of this beer is remarkable considering the style, with no scorching effect on the palate.

D: This beer is great tasting, complex, and fantastically drinkable for the style. The qualities encountered here do not fatigue the palate, as might be expected. It provides a strong argument for the optional nature of the bourbon--or other spirit-infused--barrel in the making of good wood-aged beer. If Stone bottled this beer it would be legendary; I am thankful to get a taste of it every time it re-surfaces on draft at Beachwood.

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.
