3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark brown with minimal tan head. Aroma rich roasted malt, wood, yeast, caramel. Full body, Touch of carbonation. Some alcohol but not too intrusive. Flavor off-dry. Brown sugar, coffee, bit of hops, oaky finish. Pretty complex, and very good, but point off for price as it was quite expensive and can get similar qualities for much less.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle pours dark brown with minimal tan head. Vinous aroma with some oak. Taste dark fruits, grapes, candi sugar, cognac, oak. Really improved as it warmed. Slightly thick palate with alcohol burn. Oaky finish.
I enjoyed this largely because the underlying Belgian ale was very good and the barrel aging served to enhance it. Drink at cellar temps.
