Muddy brown in color, with little head; caramel, oak, maybe a little coffee on the nose; oak and caramel dominate the taste, some dark fruit lingers on the palate. I do get alcohol--easy to believe this new bottling is 8.2%. Don't really get any IPA characteristics other than a vague bitterness--tastes more like a BA scotch ale. Something different (for me) and very enjoyable.

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a chalice.

Appearance: Pours a deep brownish amber with a moderate amount of bubbles. Slight finger of off white head that settles into a thin patch.

Smell: A toasty and fairly sweet malt forward aroma with a scent of oak and caramel. Upfront barrel scent of oak, vanilla, and wood. Toasted barley malt with hints of caramel, toffee, biscuit, oats, nuts, and yeast. Also some roasty hints of cocoa, coffee, and smoke. Earthy and floral hops with some hints of grass. Sweet hints of brown sugar. A pretty good aroma.

Taste: Like the smell hints at, a toasty and sweet malt forward taste with notes of oak barrel and caramel malt. Barrel notes of oak, vanilla, and wood. Toasted malt with notes of biscuit, caramel, toffee, oatmeal, nuts, and yeast. Some nice light roasty notes of coffee, cocoa, and smoke. Background earthy and floral hop notes. Sweet taste of brown sugar. A pretty good taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Creamy, silky, and pretty smooth.

Overall: A pretty good Oaked Ale. Hops are pretty subtle even for the English IPA style but the oaked malt flavors are very good.
