Nice and chewy, though a bit cloudy in the presentation. I'm always a little scared of these big beers, but this is surprisingly drinkable. The oak definitely shows thru… when will this oak craze go away, and do we care? Will definitely buy again...

Aroma is malts, very light DIPA-like pine and grains. The flavor is pale malts, fruit, mild peat notes and a thick and mildly alcoholic finish.

A warm caramel color with just a thin layer of lace. Smells of caramel and some oak
Similar to the smell with a caramel and toffee backbone, grapefruit, and has an oaky finish. Flavor really improves as the beer warms.
Moderate to full body, light to moderate carbonation.
Very enjoyable, but a little hot.

Mini review:

Let it warm. Caramely goodness.

Appearance: Cloudy amber with a low cream colored head.
Smell: Breezy slight floral hops.
Taste: Sweet, spicy and dry. Bit of fruit and nut to it. As it warms up I am getting an unfortunate combination from floral/citrus hop and alcohol that has morphed into an unshakable taste of nail polish remover.
Mouthfeel: Zesty and prickly with a bit of a burn.
Overall: Could be sweetly drinkable. If it wasn't for that nail polish remover thing.
