4oz draft pour into a tulip glass.

A: Brown, ruby color with minimal head.

S: Banana bread aromas.

T: Molasses, brown sugar, banana, and plum flavors.

M: Really sweet and slightly warming, but ultimately more sweet.

O: Interesting how the oak aging brought out different flavors, and liked it slightly better.

Enjoyed at the 'Most Arrogant Bar in America', Barley's Pizzeria & Taproom in Greenville, SC! Served from tap into a snifter. Poured a dark red brown with a half finger off-white head that subsided to a minimal amount quickly. Maintained nice lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, wheat, wood, earth, sweet alcohol, and subtle dark fruit. The flavor was of sweet malt, earth, spice, wood, sweet alcohol, and dark fruit. It had a light feel on the palate with medium carbonation. Overall this was a fairly good brew. The French oak really added a nice bit of complexity to this brew. The base beer really wasn’t that exciting if I am honest, so I wasn’t going into this one expecting huge things. However, the French oak definitely helped to take it to the next level as it added a nice earthy note that I did not get in the base brew in the past. A really well thought out plan here that seemed to actually enhance the brew.

A healthy probably 10-12oz pour into the Bittercreek Teku glass tonight.. Pours a hazed shade darker golden.. Decent head.. nice lacing.

Poured too cold.. let warm up for a while.. nose has some oak and a sorta perfumy .. granny smith apple skin notes..

Flavor has more oak.. and even more "perfume" ... musky dry reisling notes.. a bit of something that I associate with Perries..

Body is a solid medium... as it warms up the carbonation dies down and allows the good flavors to bloom out of the glass...

Interesting... I don't exactly remember the original version... but I had them side by side and the bigger oak made those perfume notes bloom.

I dig it.. Thanks to Chris, Dave, Erin, and ultimately Greg who made tonight's VE tap throwdown happen.

First had: on tap at Capone's, Norristown, PA

Served in a 9oz. snifter, a coppery chestnut color, hazy, with a small cap of off-white head; nice retention and lacing. Woody aroma, nutty, notes of apple and grape skin. Similar taste, nutty malts, obvious oakiness, crispness of apple and grape skin, not overly fruity though, subtle tannins, with a drying, herbal hop finish. About medium in body, mellow carbonation, slight alcohol warmth, drinkable and enjoyable.

Beautiful color and presence with this beer - light amber with a bit of cloudiness probably due to some barrel effects. The head was minimal but some lingering foam on the rim of the glass a bit of lacing. Smells of white grapes and flowers - sweet. Taste is complex especially next to the non-barrel aged. The wine presence is mellowed a bit in this version and takes on a bit more of after dinner drink (like a port or icewine). Great beer.
