On tap at Thin Man Brewery in Buffalo, NY.

This one pours a light rusted looking amber, with a small white head, and basically no lacing.

Smells like dark fruit, oak, light caramel, and toasted bread. It says it's aged in Hungarian oak chardonnay barrels- I definitely get an oak aroma- but no chardonnay.

This is pretty solid- not amazing, but solid. The oakiness is great, and gives off a hint of vanilla, along with piney hops, toasted bready malt, lots of dark fruit, and a hint of booze.

This is light bodied for the style, but very drinkable, with a normal level of carbonation.

A definitely interesting take on the style. I very much enjoyed it.
