A - Amber with nice clarity. A MASSIVE meringue head that fades slowly and leaves a very nice lacing.
S - The oak is strong with this one. The hops are subdued but still apparent.
T - Ok I was wrong. The oak is He-Man strong with this one. I really have to concentrate to find anything else. The anything else would be bitter hops with a nice malt balance. There's some alcohol in there as well. The flavors are all very good but the wood is a bit too much. Seems like a stupid thought but I wonder if the oak would mellow with some age. Personally, I'd like some more bitter in this.
M - Sticky and nice bodied. Good carbonation.
D - Very drinkable for 10%. I'm not going to have a problem going through this bottle.

have a few of these in the cellar, time to break one out and see what's what...
2 fingers of snowy white head, sticky sticky sticky, this one leaves a bread crumb trail all the way down leaving no doubt where it has been, ample carbonation keeps the head well fed, lovely microbubble sheets roll around, nicely done, this is one good lookin' brewski
citrus and wood... who would have guessed? your first instinct is hops but the wood is definitely toning it down and adding something, there is a mellow booziness throughout, old orange rind, the nose is interesting but I don't love it, the hop florals kind of smelling like termite wood.
strange.. the flavor is of ashen wood with some bitterness, it is exceptionally smooth mouth wise but the flavor is throwing me a bit, some dark honey notes, there is just something off I can't quite place my finger on, perhaps this sat too long (bottled 7/2009).
this has lost it's kick imo, without a more assertive hop profile this kind of tastes like soaked wood, too bad, the look and feel of the brew is excellent.
