Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: womencantsail on 08-07-2012

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.

Couldn't say this was an outstanding beer. It did have a white chocolate taste in a strange sort of way. Bourbon and yeast on the nose. Very little carbonation. Something sweet on the pallet, not really cocoa but maybe toffee or something like that with a slight metallic edge that I didn't really enjoy. Overall a little odd...would like to try it on tap...might be a different story.

Bottled on 08/08/14.

Pours a hazy straw color. The one inch white head fades to a ring on top and leaves spotty lace.

The smell is of grain, bourbon, cocoa and buttered bread.

The taste is of grain, bourbon, milk chocolate and vanilla.

The texture is heavy bodied with low carbonation.

Another high gravity offering. There is no mistaking the bourbon presence in both taste and aroma. Boozy and grainy with accents of chocolate and vanilla.
