750ml brown magnum, corked and caged. Bottling date on the label.

Aggressive head but with careful pouring there is no overflow ... just a massive rocky head. Dark brassy color shows off its clarity. Fresh oak, bready malt, ripe freshly peel oranges, spicy alcohol and hops with a clean nutty yeast backing all fill the nostrils. Very deep smoothness with an extremely creamy body. Spicy, warming alcohol and a think wood character. Maltiness is layered underneath with unfolds with caramel and bready flavors. Hops ring in pretty hard with a firm bitterness and long linger of flavor. Hint of orange and raisin with more spicy alcohol in the semi-sweet finish that eventually gets pulled down buy the wood.

A sipper and a lovely one at that. Encore please!!

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.

look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a snifter. Bottle #2141, from May 2010. I was a big fan of #2 and #3, so I had to purchase this as well.

3.0 A: Murky plum brown color. Two plus fingers of frothy beige head. Retention is below average and a very short ring of lacing is left.

4.5 S: Like the past incarnations of the woodcut series, this too delivers the oak big time. Oak, oak, vanilla, oak, nuttiness, and oak. The base, though admittedly hard to find, works well with the barrel. Sweet neutral maltiness with some caramel and toastiness. Really wonderful smelling. Well done.

3.5 T: The flavors in this are intense to say the least. Again, tons of oak and vanilla. A mild nuttiness. Toasty with caramel and a hefty neutral malt sweetness. You can also taste the lager yeast, if that makes sense. I really like the way this tastes, but it's pretty damn sweet and I scored it accordingly.

4.0 M: Heavy body. Good moderate carbonation. Good creaminess. This would be smoother if it was less sweet, but still good enough.

3.5 D: Not the most drinkable beer, but it certainly is a bold one. Huge oak like it's brothers and a big Bruery sweetness to bring out the diabetes in everyone.
