2013 vintage. into snifter.
A: a very, very hazy brown body. head is off-white and is bubbly. retention and lacing are minimal.
S: wood and raisins. plums and figs. not getting any oxidation or off-aromas. not getting any hops either.
T: a lot of raisins. dark, sweet fruit. a lot of wood. distinctive oak flavor right smack in the middle of the drink. really kind of unpleasant. finish returns to more wood and dark fruit. not cloying without much in this finish.
M: carb is pretty average. full bodied.
D: really not a desirable brew for me. too much wood, not enough malt and hops to provide balance. not all beers should be put in oak! I actually get no hops. don't think ill be trying this one again.
Serving type: bottle
