Well, that french oak is there in spades. Yeah... I love heavily oaked beers, I still think about terrapin big hoppy monster oaked, but this was putrid. French oak in liquid form with teriyaki, pickles, booze, ashtray, and dirt. Allegedly has vanilla and chocolate? Not getting either in smell or taste. Smell is just the wood, booze, and smoke. Feel was woody, somewhat sour, and hot too. But hey, it looked great with the midnight black body and tan cap.
