Poured into my pint glass. Good finger of head, with solid lacing throughout. Deep hazy amber with an off-white head.
Strong hoppy aroma, grapefruit comes to mind. Good malty sweetness in the background. The oak definitely adds some sweetness and smoothness versus the non-oaked version.
Strong hop flavors, with a good bit of the oils shining through. The oak definitely comes out more as it warms, adding a rich sweet smoothness that you will love more and more as it warms. Very balanced.
Mild carbonation. mild alcohol in the background, though it is not as present as you'd expect. An exceptional brew indeed.
