Poured into a goblet. 2 finger, off-white head. Good lacing. Clear, dark copper colored body.
Smell is malty, some citrus hops, very mild woody aroma. Floral hops and slightly caramely.
Taste is malty, slightly caramely, hints of roasted malts and vanilla that faintly lingers. Nice, mild bitterness in finish that is slightly earthy and citrusy. Spicey and floral hops present as well. Mildly nutty. Oakey flavors come out more as the beer warms. Nice balanced ut yet very complex.
Mouthfeel is medium body, slightly slick and a crisp finish.
Drinkability is good. Slightly sweet and big abv make it not quite sessionable.
Very very tasty beer and very unique. Didnt really like it on tap as much as I did from the bottle. Hides 10% well. The oak adds a nice touch w/o being overpowering.

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.
