This one pours nearly black with just a faint garnet glow. The head is light tan and diminished to a skim and leaves just a bit of lace. The aroma is moderate-high roasted malts, some chocolate, vanilla, and oak, hints of warm alcohol, quite inviting. The flavor is a marriage of roasted malt, bittersweet caramel and dark fruit upfront. These flavors are quickly swept clean by a pleasantly strong oak flavor that lingers well after the swallow and continues to emerge as the ABV warms my palate and belly. The carbonation is medium and body full. Overall this is a well made brew with a pronounced oak flavor -- a great beer to sit, sip, and enjoy the flavors of roasted malts and oak.
