Hazy dark copper pour with a medium bone white head that diminishes steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of oak, caramel and yeast. Light to medium body with an oaky character and notes of caramel malt, yeast and herbal hops. The finish is dry and hoppy. Overall the oak aging is nuanced enough that it strikes a nice balance. Pretty good overall.

A - Deep amber red, no clarity, lots of head and sticky lace. Its a beaut..

S - Spicy hops hit first, then your senses are overwhelmed with smoky wood notes

T - Decent IPA, but the aftertaste with the wood notes dominate the end of the taste. Very good

M - Medium bodied, dry. Smooth

O - I am always blown away by how much beer takes on the wood characteristics when barrel aged. A good brew. Not incredible, but drinkable and tasty
