look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4

Had this out of the bottle and poured into a glass earlier this month and haven't gotten around to reviewing it until now. Bought a 4-pack and got it for my friends b-day. I thought it would be cool for us to share a beer together. This is my first review, here we go!

A-The beer looks flawless and the bottle is incredibly cool and funny. Has a pretty large, tan colored head and it seems like it stays forever. The beer is a deep copper color, almost amber. looks great.

S- Smells different. You can really smell the oaked and wood flavoring and it is for sure the strongest and primary smell. There might be some sort of citrus thing going on too from what I remember as well as the hops. Might be some sort of bready sent going on. Not to bad, but once again, mainly oak and wood.

T- Wow! The taste is pretty much like as my friend put it, "Like drinking a liquefied tree!" There is a heavy wood presence here. Not a lot of booze taste here, which is good. Hops are noticed here, but not overly powerful. The taste finishes dry, but not too dry. The taste lingers for a very long time afterwards. Even after chewing a stick of gum, I was still able to feel it on my mouth. Overall, a very aggressive and strong taste, but I don't mind.

M- Not a whole lot of carbonation, which is a good thing. Most beers are too carbonated and it takes away from the other qualities of the beer. The mouthfeel is heavy without a doubt. Like I said before, the taste stays with you for a very long time.

O- A very big and bold beer. Tastes very different and unique in a good way. I have never had anything like that before. My friend couldn't stand it because he said it was like drinking a tree. While he was right, it's not necessarily a bad thing. Overall, a very pleasant experience, if you get the chance to try this, don't pass it up!
