I poured this beer into a pint glass. This beer has a nice reddish body with partially no head to it. The aroma is nice and malty. The taste is right up front with some oak and vanilla flavors. Then the little bit of sweetness on the back of the tongue is a nice touch. Great mouth feel and overall a really good, drinkable beer.

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

12 oz. bottle poured into pint.

A: Clear amber with thick, frothy khaki head. Good retention and lacing.

S: Smells of vanilla, caramel and a tinge of hops.

T: Rich vanilla and caramel up front. Finishes like a Boston Lager with a bit of hops and a tinge of vanilla and cream. Very light oak notes throughout. I really like the aftertaste....it's yummy :D

M: Thicker side of medium. Nice, creamy, and frothy. Appropriate for the taste and style.

O: Seems more winter-y than spring, but quite nice nonetheless. Not as oak-y as the name of the beer would have you think, but there's a slight overtone of oak throughout. I really like this beer...more than I thought I was going to....

Been really impressed with this mixed pack...probably my favorite mixed pack that BBC has released.

Pours a very clear chestnut-red with little to no head on it.

Smells malty sweet, typical of a red ale. This beer has a tanginess that immediately attacks the sides of my tongue. A trace taste of vanilla leaves a silky feeling on the palate. Definitely malt forward with no noticeable hop presence. As suggested by the title, the wood plays a big factor in the taste with positive results.

A very well crafted beer. Another winner from the Boston Beer Co.

I got this as part of Sam Adam's Spring 12pk Brewer's Collection for $13.39 at Woodman's in Janesville, WI in Winter 2011.

Pours a clear, reddish, amber color with a slight white frothy head. Scent is mostly that of dry malts. There is a unique taste here. Has obvious malt taste but with roasted tones. There are hints of vanilla and the oak really comes out in the dry finish. Another decent brew from Sam Adams, but why oh why does this only come in a 12pk variety pack?

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.
