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.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Batch 1. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance - Murky light amber body. Thin collar with a few bubbles on the surface.

Smell - Lots of vanilla and chocolate. Bourbon. Harsh booziness. Really does smell like white chocolate, though.

Taste - Bourbon and vanilla up front. Chocolate is very strong. The white chocolate flavor is still apparent, but not like the smell. Sweet with a hint of grain. Intense vanilla bean finish.

Mouthfeel - Harsh and boozy. Medium carbonation. You taste every bit of the ABV.

Overall - The white chocolate concept is spot on, but the vanilla is as intense as vanilla extract.

This beer is dark, yet it has some reddish hues. Otherwise, it'll be a dark pour. Has some bubbles formed at the top. Smells like cognac, oak, some vanilla and some chocolate. Taste good. Body is a bit thick and syrupy.

Can't wait to try it again.
