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

Poured into a sterilized glass, not much smell to it, however the color is a beautiful mid-brown with transparency and thickness that reminded me of iced tea. Sweet hops, slightly citrusy. Great wood Oak flavor that takes over. I agree with other fans of this beer that I taste bourbon as well.
