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

Appearance-Pours a dark amber-red into the glass with some nice red highlights, about two fingers of off-white head forms and leaves a nice coating of sticky lacing along the glass and a ring around the edges of the beer.

Aroma-Sweet oak and caramel malts. Some hops on the nose but they're on the back end as far as I can tell, this one is all about that oak character.

Taste-Practically identical to the nose with the malt-soaked oak coming first and foremost in the taste department followed by a slight bittering hop profile rounding things out in the middle and ending with that same oaken flavor on the aftertaste. Nicely layered.

Mouthfeel-Big, thick and rich without being syrupy like an RIS and with just enough carbonation to give it a crisp sting.

Drinkability-Scarily drinkable, the oak smooths everything out so well that I can see why Stone sells these in sixes; I can go through a sixer in a day no problem.
