Twelve ounce bottle freshness dated to July 2012.

Pours a deep copper with foamy beige head. head lasts a fair amount of time, spotty lacing. Aroma is grassy, vanilla; not woody or whiskey barrel. Taste is creamy, vanilla, sweetish.Mouthfeel is light and a bit tangy. Quite enjoyable!

Appearance - Copper color, and an off-white head, which leaves some lacing.

Aroma - Sweet, and a double-bubble bubblegum sort of aroma. A little malt.

Taste - A little toasted malt, sweetness, and a creamy middle, finishing with a earthy hop bite.

Finish - Semi-dry, crisp, refreshing.

I read some of the reviews on this and frankly I have no clue where some of these people are comming from. A person rated this beer as a three point something and said "it is like Rogue Dead Guy Ale or a Sam Adams Longshot winning Derfs Secret Alt". First off those beers are both five point beers, and second of all, these beers are nothing alike!

Full body, malty with a slight oak caracter.

If you are looking for an oak aged beer, you will probably think you dont taste any oak at all.

Was very surprised to find this beer in a single since Samuel Adams doesnt brew it anymore. This was my favorite beer from their spring variety pack and was the winner of the brew contest that was held.

A: This beer pours a nice medium, amber color with a thin, creamy white head that leaves some good lacing.

S: Distinct notes from the oak bring out this aroma that is followed by caramel and vanilla.

T: Very intense sweetness that is brought about by a strong oak flavor. The body consists of Vanilla, caramel and some malt. Nice dry finish that has a yeast type feel.

M: Very earthy mouth, but not of the Saison or pale ale kind. Has a very unique and distinct flavor. Carbonation is very present which helps bring out the notes from the oak.

O: I love this beer, even more so out of a glass. Oak themed beers have a complex brewing process that has generous amounts of vanilla and caramel. Very nice blend of ingredients. Im pretty sure this is the last of this beer I will every have the pleasure of drinking, so im savoring the flavor.
