I may be wrong but that looks like an awful lot of head space for a beer in secondary for 2.5 months. If it's not infected it sure could be oxidized, I'd grab a sample and see how it tastes/smells for sure!

Smells and tastes oaky and delicious! The chops sat in brandy for about 6 months before I used them. Would that have killed off any of the potential bacteria?

The photo looked like yeast rafts. Sometimes they just do not sink. Headspace is not a real problem if you have CO2 on top of the beer and keep an airlock or seal the top.

I would have bottled as soon as the oaking stage was complete and let the beer carb and age in the bottle, but it sounds like everything is going good.
