On tap at the Collective

Color is a beautiful deep copper color with a thick white head. Lots of lacing. A really nice looking beer! Aroma is really nice. Dark fruits, citrus and pine notes and an earthy dankness. Just a touch of oak on the nose. The flavor brings a lot more of the oak - it starts with with a blast of bitter hops on the palate followed that is followed by fig, caramel and oak. The finish is more of the citrus along with oak notes. I'm a fan. Body feel is moderately full with good carbonation.

Overall, I like this better than the original. The oak adds a lot of complexity without being overpowering. A really fine beer.
