Terrapin Phlux Capacitor

I was able to go out to dinner in Greensburg at the Headkeeper Tapas bar, so I ordered a bottle of Terrapin Phlux Capacitor. The beer pours a dark amber color with a frothy cream colored head. The aroma consists of oak, pine, lemon, lots of caramel, and some toffee. The taste provides caramel and toffee sweetness with a light lemon accent. There is a dry and very oaky finish. Overall, it tastes like sawdust and eating wood. The alcohol content is 9.8% ABV. IF you are looking for an oaked beer, this is the one for you. I like most of the flavors in this beer, but I did think that the oak got in the way a little bit and was overdone.
