Check out beers from Innis & Gunn. It is a Scottish beer. They store their beers in oak barrels. Some whisky distiller wanted some beer infused barrels for an experiment. Instead of throwing the beer out when finished, it was consumed. Beer with an oak flavor.

You can only find it at liquor stores, as it has a higher alcohol content (6.6 %) compared to standard beers.

I kinda like it. \:\)

I've oaked a homebrew. Its more commonly done with wines but is gaining popularity in beers. The main problem is time. Oaking takes at least a month.

What type of beers are best suited for oaking?

Kimber45, I had those two just last week. Except I had the regular Oak aged beer, not the rum aged.

The Chocolate Stout was pretty good. Of course the Innis & Gunn was good, too.

Never had the oak aged beer but that Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout is really good.

Whiskey barrel aged beers are all the rage right now. I went to the introduction party for Blackstone's new whiskey barrel aged high-grav stout. Not bad, but to be honest, most of these brews go too heavy on the whiskey. If I wanted that much whiskey flavor, I would have downed a shot of whiskey.

For homebrewers, most are using whiskey soaked oak chips in their fermentation process to get the flavor. I've had some decent homebrews made using that process.

I live me some sweet stouts! I like chocolate, vanilla, and milk stouts.

I haven't tried the Brooklyn Brewing Chocolate Stout, but I will. Normally I'm not a big fan of their beers, but you never know. My favorite chocolate beer is Boulder Brewing's Boulder Shake Chocolate Porter.

Typically if I buy a beer that's been aged in whiskey barrels I will buy the single large bottle. Some are better than others.
