On tap at Amsterdam Ale House in Manhattan.

Pours a deep amber with a lasting head. The lacing was impeccable. Rings of froth coated the glass after each sip. The aroma was a bit of a letdown as it was very much subdued. I only caught some herbal hoppiness. The taste was sweet at first, caramel, then a mint hop explosion. Mouthfeel was a bit gritty, thick.

Overall the flavor of this beer delivers big time. I prefer this more than the Oaked version.
