From a bottle at Capone's during Philly Beer Week...
A - Two fingers worth of rich creamy slightly off white colored head... Never have I seen such unrelenting retention... A glowing orange amber color...
S - The oak is simply intoxicating... It dominates and does so in a good way... There are undertones of some toasted malts and mild tropical fruitiness...
T - Caramel... Subtle pineapple... Golden raisins... Coconut... Vanilla... Oak... Wonderful balance and complexity...
M - There's smooth and smoother, but this one may be the smoothest of them all... Ever so slightly sticky... This one goes down sip after sip after sip... Smooth, creamy, and exceptional... On the fuller side of medium bodied... Oh so good...
D - I could sip away at this each and every night and be a very happy camper... There's no hiding the 11% ABV, but this one is a winner all the way around... There aren't enough accolades to describe this one adequately... Sophisticated, smooth, and in a league of it's own about sums it up...

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.
