3.98/5  rDev -5.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass.

S - Citrus and tropical fruits. Hints of alcohol and cocoa.

A - Hazy, deep amber with a quarter-inch beige head and sticky, delicate lacing.

T - An earthy/herbal bitterness balanced with a caramel malt sweetness. Bourbon and booze emerge in the middle with roasty undertones. Flavor hops and bitterness presumably smoothed out and subdued by the oak. Finishes semi-sweet with bourbon, booze and dark chocolate lingering in the aftertaste.

M - Moderate carbonation. Medium bodied. Slight alcohol warming.

O - The oaked version of one of my favorites. This is still a tasty beer; however, the oak seemed to diminish one of my favorite qualities of the original AB, the strong hop presence to balance the impressive malt backbone. With the hops subdued, the oak chips do provide an interesting complexity and different character, but I'll stick with my non-oaked AB from now on. Definitely worth a try though.
