What the label says:

This honey hued beer is matured over the American Oak heartwood to unlock natural flavours from deep within the oak grain.  These luscious flavours of toffee, vanilla and oak perfectly balance the beer’s malt backbone and light hop fruitiness.  Its mellowness and depth of flavour makes it a great accompaniment to foods like grilled seafood, juicy steaks and mature cheese.

What the Beerdrinker says:

Akin to a brown ale, this is a truly regal beer, with a rich smoky oak nose.  This is a supremely smooth, sweet and mellow beer.  It is almost brandy like in its smoothness and produces a real warmness..  This a really decadent and pleasurable beer..
