Just not feelin' it dawg. I don't like the flavor of it. Struggling to finish one 12oz beer. Glad it was only 1 in a mix-a-six.

First, this is one of the best ales available.

A: Head pours copper-red color. The head disappears but leaves sticky residue. There's a nice lacing.

S: Smells definitely of oak, other woods, and lots of pine/citrus hops.

T: Outstanding taste. Dry oak, strong hops, bitter pine, arrogance, and hints of caramel.

M: Medium-heavy body, very filling. Dry finish..

O: A little mellower than regular AB, but a better taste. This is truly a favorite. Not as sweet as original.

From notes on 3/29/14

Darker brown body. Oaked malty aroma. Very malty flavors. Good amount of woodyness also comes through.
