This is a solid O'fest, which I will admit is not my favorite beer style. Love the addition of the oak. Really impressive flavor for the slightly higher ABV which is undetected. Try it if you see it!

Nose of lightly toasted malts, caramels, ripe juicy apples and fermented fruit, a bit of yeast, traces of butterscotch, and a touch of ABV. After it warms, there's also hints of vanilla.

Taste presents toasted malts and caramels on a subtle background of neutral wood. Just enough dried herbal/floral bittering hops to be noticed. ABV is completely hidden. Darker, woody tones emerge deep into the glass. Finish, while balanced, leans towards the hops/wood.

Smooth and luscious across the tongue. Moderate body that thins out as it warms. Finish leans toward the dry side.

Tasty expression of the style, especially with using the oak to smooth and polish the beer.
