    Coconut and oak were at the fore...nose and flavor. Almond biscotti is a good descriptor too :) Weird brew but good. A little barleywine like in its presentation yet not. Some apricot like fruit in the flavor as well with very little hops. Likely a one timer, but enjoyed way beyond its scores here.

    Bottled. Golden colour, small beige head. Aroma is some fruits, yeast, mild notes of nectar. Quite pleasant. Flavour is sweet apricot, some earth and mild notes of wood.

    Bottle: Poured a golden honey color ale with small foamy head with minimal retention and not much lacing. Aroma of sweet rich malt with some bitter grassy hoppy notes also discernible. Taste is more or less interesting with some overly sweet malt notes and a clashing bitter hoppy finish. Body is full with medium to low carbonation and no alcohol perceptible per say. Overly sweet mess with clashing hops and no real presence of oak is a real disappointment.

    smell is of maple and other light oak tree whiffs on a summer day ... pretty bitter, but nice level of sweetness but funny, not balanced ... dark maple syrup colour .. i will age a year then throw the bottle at a predetermined friends face...hard...so hard i won't be able to stand it....

    opened my second bottle about 6 months back and it was a shitstorm.. it was decent fresh but rotten with a year.. a mess..

    The label says 'Oak Aged Series'. The beer pours a golden copper colour with athin white ring. The aroma is caramel malt, some vanilla, and some rasins. The flavour is sweet malt, some molasses, and a bitter finish.

    Downright weird. Pours copper orange with no head. Very sticky sweet, with hints of sugar and lighter fluid. And spice. And sugar. And spice. And so on. Only...it's not good. A true mouthwrecker. Thanks for listening, have a great day.

    Bottle from Stateline, totally excited for such marketing ploys in a box, from a brewer that is totally hit or miss for me. Well, this one was a big miss. The pour was orange-colored, very thin head barely covered the beer, finishing with about nil lacing. The aroma was vanilla, coconut, caramel, some farmhouse type notes. The flavor was vanilla, coconut, astringency, farmhouse almost peppery type notes, and finishing again with a bitter astringency (isn't that special?). I didn't get much oak or wood underneath all of the sticky sweet and somewhat nasty astringent malty aspects with farmhouse and spice elements. This was honestly a train wreck, save your $$!
