Wrapped bottle, striped black paper.(Oak Whisky Barrels)
An 9% ABV beer in which the fermented sugars were all obtained from malt (20 degrees Plato). A generous dose of hops and a long maturation time makes this beer best of the best. This beer is bottle conditioned and will go through taste evolution during many years. Matured for a quarter of a year on a selection of whisky casks. (Translation by Martinus)

phaleslu (6807) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 11, 2013
Bottle shared at a blind tasting. Came from a black bag, so it’s this one. Pours a hazy, murky, dull amber color with a small off-white head. Aroma of dates, butterscotch, raisins, toffee, and brown sugar- a bit muddled, and very sweet. Same for the flavor, but without the same pop; butterscotch, toffee, dried fruits, and oak. Light-bodied, with low carbonation and a smooth, sweet mouthfeel. Not bad but a little on the weak side in the flavor.

kevinsenn (1136) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 8, 2012
Bottle. As the attached tag suggested, we tried this "hot" (42 degrees C). For me personally, I think I would’ve enjoyed this more at "normal Belgian ale temperature". But also I don’t really love whisky (and therefore don’t really love whisky-aged beers). Poured dark with a thin tan head, a little murky. Aroma was quite boozy (due to the high temperature, I’m sure), with some marshmallow and whisky. Taste was slightly fruity, slightly sour, slightly chocolaty, marshmallow, with an overall boozy whisky quality. Drinking this hot was an experience I’m glad to have had.

fiulijn (15227) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 20, 2012
Bottle from L’Abbaye des Saveurs, Lille, n. 15700, bottled Apr 2011
Very dark color, almost black, with medium sized brownish head. The aroma is mild, with some chocolate, roasted malt, very light cardboard, some feety yeast. Medium body strength, the body is quite round; roasted malt flavor, with chocolate and a strong liquorice character. The oak is not really evident, but there is just some alcohol perception.
Smooth round and flawless, this beer is well brewed, but there is too much liquorice.
