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.

For some reason, this beer didn't have any curb appeal for me. As I drink it, I find it grows on me. What a pleasant surprise!

Poured into a standard pint glass to a deep amber color with a half inch foamy head. It's very nice looking.

I get hints of caramel in the nose, along with a bit of maltiness.

Very slightly sweet but nice. It's a strong flavor and tends toward syrupy, but it's good.

Mouthfeel is very good. No bite, some pleasant tingle, and a nice foaminess to it. Well built full-bodied beer.

Overall, it's another nice offering from Sam.
