Few weeks back I drank a mc tarnahans IPA that was Oak aged, and I thought the flavor left something to be desired, a bit sour/tart and weird I guess. Might be an aquired taste or something. I think I would save the wood chip thing for brewing wine, which realy needs that cask aged flavor.

Guid ale gars me sell my hose,
Sell my hose, and pawn my shoon -
Guid ale keeps my heart aboon! -- Robert Burns
