2.98/5 rDev -15.1%
Undated bottle at 55 degrees into goblet
Aroma – muted oak sawdust
Head average (2.5 cm), frothy, light brown, rapidly diminishing to a thin layer
Body medium brown with a distinct red cast when held to light
Flavor mild, with no obvious hops. In fact, other than an oakiness, there is no defining flavor present. The malt is not obvious, nor is alcohol nor diacetyl.
Palate light to medium, dry, carbonation lively.
Very sessionable, but why? There is nothing to recommend the flavor except, perhaps, to an oak leaf roller. What JK is doing is commendable, but this offering does not make it for my taste.

A - Pours a dark brown with some red highlights. Has a two finger light tan head that dissipates quickly but a thin cap holds out.
S - Sweet malts and caramel upfront. Dark fruits, maybe some cherry? Notes of spice too.
T - Well I didn't smell any oak but its very prevalent in the flavor. Oak, vanilla, and malt dominate. Notes of caramel and molasses. Finishes dry. Flavors started to wear on me as the beer warmed
M - Very light body and high carbonation. Finishes dry, very drinkable.
O - Interesting and tasty beer. Flavors were subtle but enjoyable and beer is endlessly drinkable. I ended up knocking a few points off on it due to the flavors starting to wear on me as the bear warmed but other than that enjoyable and very different.

Tan head. Color is a caramel hued brown.
Flavor profile: some caramel and nuttiness. Very bready. A lot of spices. It also has some fruitiness to it. Cherries stick out the most. Has a bit of oak showing. Maybe a slight infected flavor? Kind of rye like. A bit of smoked malt as well.
Mouthfeel: spiced and smokey. Lighter bodied. Medium amount of carbonation.
Overall, a very interesting beer. I don't know if this has been infected or if it's supposed to taste like this, but I don't like the slight cherry flavor in it. It'd be good otherwise.
