Notes/Commercial Description:
The primary component of our "White Oak" ale is a 100% barrel aged wheat wine that we affectionately refer to as "White Oak Sap." Essentially a "summer" barley-wine style ale, but made with a wheat heavy grain base, White Oak Sap is aged in used bourbon barrels for nearly a year and comes out rich in flavors of coconut, honey, caramel and vanilla. To compliment the already rich flavors of the beer, we've added cacao nibs and vanilla beans to give this beer the delicate flavor of white chocolate...hence the name.

The pour is a murky light brown, no visible head. Bubbles coming from the bottom, some nice film around the glass. Smell is sweet and huge with white chocolate flavor. What a great smelling beer. There's a sweet bourbon start on the flavor, then falls back to a smooth white chocolate and vanilla after taste. You can also pick up oak, and the alcohol burn isn't overwhelming. It's incredibly sweet but it's so flavorful. Medium mouthfeel, slightly carbonated, thought it would be more bubbly from the appearance, but I'm glad it's not. Nice unique beer and a great sipper.

2012 bottle. Slightly hazy golden-amber color, minimal head or lace.

Smells good - vanilla, coconut, caramel malt; cohesive and quite appetizing.

Tastes like it smells - vanilla, coconut, light chocolate, light honey/caramel, a bit of dried fruit along the lines of golden raisin, and nice hit of bourbon in the finish. On the sweet side, but appropriately so. Cohesive and quite tasty.

Medium bodied, fine cushy carbonation, sugary;. Surprisingly easy to drink for the sweetness and alcohol levels; goes down easy. Goes well with Pepperidge Farm Brussels cookies.
