12oz bottle into a snifter.
Pours a hazy dark amber with a thin tan head. Very good head retention and lacing.
Smells of oak along with caramel malt and maybe a slight hint of hops. Really nothing too spectacular but it's pleasing.
The oak hits you first on the taste followed by caramel and a sharp bitterness that is long lasting. It is a nice drying bitterness that really makes you want another sip. I feel the oak could be a little more prominent though.
Overall this is a really good beer but not out of this world good. I had to dock a few points because of the price. This beer runs around $22 a six pack in this area which is way too much in my opinion.
