A nice enough dark belgian strong aged in cognac like barrels...but if memory serves, these are upwards of $30 per 750, and after trying this one so graciously provided by a friend, i would not spend half of what these cost on the others. Belgian spicy yeast and brown sugar comingle with the barrel. High ccarbonation covers tha abv pretty damn well. Good, just not elite, which is how it is priced
