Dark brown color. The head didn't amass much. I had it at a finger, but it fell to a ring.

Dark sugars, meaty Scotch ale malts, faint oxi, rum raisin, faint smoke, molasses, and English malt. No booze yet, which is a plus.

Caramelized sugars, black strap, oak barrel, meaty malts, bruleed vanilla creme, raisin, spiced rum, date sugars, light smoke, and a thinner barley malt finish. I wish this had more substinence. The alcohol is leaking out now. Aforementioned flavors are on the weak side, but duly noted.

A late, prickly effervescence that doesn't actually carry much magnitude. It just kind of comes and tickles. The body is cumbersome. Maybe it's the booze that's making things difficult. Nothing is trying to hide. Upfront 10%. Upfront impy brown slathering maltfest.

I wasn't really impressed with this reissue. I never had the original, so I don't know what magnificence this desecrated... if it's even that bad. I didn't think so. Just a slightly above-average strong ale with it's own brand of confusion, like a mega-beer going through puberty.

Maple Nut Brown was pleasing. Oaked Aged Butt Head was even better. Fuse the two concepts together and you get a double brown ale aged with oak. I imagine the malt mouths are all over this. From a 12 ounce bottle, on to the beer:

Not much head forms on the pour, and even so it shrinks to a mere lace. As for the beer, it looks like the color brown was given a crisp via hot lava. Looks muddy even. Moving on. Now it has my interest. I smell smoke, vague spice (what is up with that Hungarian oak?), a little toffee and alcohol too. Well, it smells unique.

I expected big and malty, big and malty. I got big and malty, big and malty. Toasty. A squeeze of alcohol. Augh, that's much too toasty. Too sweet. The flavors aren't very interesting. This is so toasty, I could pour this on bread and toast it. It's very slick on the palate as well, so the flavor is not going to be going away soon. Ok, enough!

No sir, I don't like it.

A - 3.75 - Murky dark brown color with a nice tan head that sticks around.
S - 3.75 - Caramel, toffee, bready, smoke, butterscotch, roasted malt.
T - 3.75 - Definitely getting the oak barrels, smoke, caramel, toffee, roasted malt, toast.
M - 3.75 - Medium mouthfeel. Alc covered. Aftertaste is caramel and toffee.
O - 3.75 - It's not as complex as I'd expect something oak barrel aged to be. I've tasted much more complexity out of browns that aren't barrel aged, so I'm not sure if they just didn't let this sit long enough or what. That said. It's a good beer.
