Had on tap. I loved the idea of this beer, "250 years in the making" that used wood from an old tree in the area. Even more so I loved the actual beer! Ashy black with grayish brown ring of foam. Smell is wood forward with some smoky char, dark chocolate, bourbon, and lactose malt. Taste is king here, with fantastic melding of the charactered and charred wood, dark chocolate, a matrix of wonderful bourbon laded malt work, and touches of roasted molasses, coffee with creamer, and leather. All the while the body takes these rustic flavors and incorporates them into a creamy and highly drinkable feel. Really impressed with this one, very memorable, a great ode to the hobson oak tree.
