I had this on-tap when it was a pilot beer. I think the one I had was with Brett. This review is for the standard bottle.
A: Mahogany amber in color with a bounding, just off-white head. Moderate carbonation.
S: Very aromatic. Sweet, maltiness intially, but followed with lots of barrel notes. Coconut, wood, cedar, and even a hint of pineapple. End the end I even get some hops to round it out. They are floral and light in aroma, but there. Damn nice.
T: Lots of flavor here. As one would expect from a double marzen, there is a boat load of maltiness. Lots of caramel character too. It is that rich, thick caramel flavor, like one would expect from a caramel candy. Not a ton of toffee flavor but some. The barrel aging really made this beer stellar. The burnt coconut and cedar flavors really round this out well. Very rich flavors overall. The hops are present enough to let you know this beer has them. Some herbal and earthy quality, but not a ton. This was really an exceptional beer. Very flavorful.
M: Rich, medium-heavy bodied. Creamy and smooth. Finishes dry enough to invite the next drink.
D: Wow. I was really impressed with this beer. For the 25 dollar price tag it needed to be exceptional. It lived up to the price. I will likely buy another and cellar it. A really great beer.

Bottle courtesy of mulder1010. Shared at tasting. Transcribed from scrappy notes.
Bright blood orange with minimal saffron head.
Oaked strawberry, tart orange and grapefruit pith with very smart and perky woody edges.
Toffee apple, strawberry jam, tart citrus and spearmint in a sea of complex, cedary oak.
Medium with benign carbonation. Feels closer to 8 than 11%
Lovely stuff. Would never have guessed at the style, but arbitrarily adopting the nearest comparison of an oak-aged wild ale, it stands up very commendably. Only wish I'd had more than 4oz to enjoy.
