A - dark reddy brown, dense one finger off white head. great spotty lace. Swirl revives head wonderfully.

S - vanilla malts, caramel.

T - a hit of treacle from the get go, with burnt (very) toffee notes. Different from smell. Very very dry aftertaste. Hint of vanilla as it warms.

M - lightly carbonated, medium weight despite ABV.

O - OK - i just read my review of the non-oaked version. I wrote 'well made beer, just don't like the dry treacle taste'. Ditto!!! The oak does not add enough to this palate. Ah well, proves you need to read your own reviews, not go by scores :-)
