22oz bottle poured into a snifter. Pours a dark reddish brown color with an off-white head. I'm sure that this beer picked up a lot of it's dark color from the time spent in the barrels. The nose features a lot of oak, biscuity malts and some fruitiness. The taste like the aroma is malt up front, vanilla, oak, and some bitterness in the finish. Despite the 100 IBUs, this one is not overly bitter from the hops.

Couldn't tell what style of beer this was until I looked it up. The oak dominates the nose, flavor, and mouthfeel. The hops and bitterness are masked by the wood. A little too unbalanced to love

Pours an effervescent caramel. Traces of lacing & head retention

S: Coffee??? Oakyness, toffee

T: Mocha, vanilla & dryness up front. Toasty dryness as this warms, more mocha, a little hazelnut as this warms. Finishes dry, toasty with sweetn vanilla & hazelnut

MF: Medium & slight carbonation

This alright, probably the weakest beer I've had from these guys. Seriously doubt this an EIPA

Poured into a DFH IPA glass. Pours a very cloudy copper color with a large, active beige head. Decent retention, after about 4 minutes leaves some pretty heavy lacing on the sides.

Oak is very strong in the aroma, and booze is definitely there as well. Fairly sweet caramel malts. Some subtle herbal and grassy notes as well.

Taste is very strong with oak, and not much else at first. As it warms, the oak starts sharing the spotlight with some very pleasant peach, grapefruit, and pineapple notes. Definitely not as strong as the tropical flavors in most TG brews, so this balance is a very nice touch. The flavors of oak and citrus really work well together here. After a while, the woody flavors take control again and meld with the caramel malts in the aroma. Very well done.

Medium bodied, perfectly carbonated, and supremely and dangerously drinkable at it's ABV. This is a dangerous beer; good taste but the flavors aren't so strong that it overpowers the tongue, and it can make for a fun time at 8%.

Overall, an excellent entry by TG and a nice break from their typical IPAs. Flavors are achieved very well and overall, this beer is worth the price of admission in every aspect.
