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.

look: 2.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A - cloudy off copper, no apparent carbonation or head.

S - soft white chocolate, cocoa, hints of grapefruit, and citrus.

T - citrus, white chocolate, kind of oaty tasting, some warmth, hops nonexistant.

M - very rich mouthfeel, malt domination, and warming body.

D - really good, excellent flavor for description of beer. A bit warming, but not bad for 14.5 percent. Recommend sitting on it for a year or two.
