Dark brown body with an amber glow. A great tan head collapsed and left a very impressive amount of lacing.
Sweet hops. Really great whiff of sugary malts… burnt caramel.
Hops: Started off pretty mild but finished with a kick. Herbal and floral… almost sour.
Malts: Subtle sweet notes of caramel and molasses. Good notes up front but the hops take over in the finish.
Notes: The oak is subtle but it really brought the hops and malts together. The malts are nearly absent in the standard version of this brew but it is smoother and more balanced in this version. The oak also hides the alcohol very well.
Moderate-low carbonation. Dry finish.
Overall: The oak barrels did wonders for this brew. I would definitely reach for this version over the standard version.
