I poured this beer into a pint glass. This beer has a nice reddish body with partially no head to it. The aroma is nice and malty. The taste is right up front with some oak and vanilla flavors. Then the little bit of sweetness on the back of the tongue is a nice touch. Great mouth feel and overall a really good, drinkable beer.

Pours a very clear chestnut-red with little to no head on it.

Smells malty sweet, typical of a red ale. This beer has a tanginess that immediately attacks the sides of my tongue. A trace taste of vanilla leaves a silky feeling on the palate. Definitely malt forward with no noticeable hop presence. As suggested by the title, the wood plays a big factor in the taste with positive results.

A very well crafted beer. Another winner from the Boston Beer Co.
