This ale pours a deep copper color with a thick off white head which leads to a thin cream lacing throughout the pour. The aromas are sweet and malty; not what I'd expect from an imperial ipa. There are notes of hops but they are subtle. Lots of caramel and a little vanilla on the nose. The flavor is deep and rich, with hops up front followed by a sweet malty taste. Alot of oak and vanilla on the finish. The taste is rich and satisfying but subtle for an ipa. This is a pretty awesome beer just hard to view as an imperial ipa due to its sweetness and lack of hops. Not what I expected but damn good none the less. Can't wait to try the unaged version of this one.

Holy oak taste, Batman!

Forget aged in oak. This tastes like I'm just drinking right out of the barrel. Oak, brown, tannins. That's what this beer tastes like. Also some hops and malt... but mostly just oak.

No real good aromas to speak of.

What am I drinking? Sigh. Drinkable and unique, but wouldn't have it again
