Draught. Pours a very dark brown color with a moderate tan head on there. Nose has a lot of oak coming through with some notes of caramel and candied sugar and just a bit of the Belgian yeast. Taste is slightly sweet and woody, and drinks super smooth. Really a beer you should sip and enjoy.

barbillon (54) - Pesaro, ITALY - FEB 18, 2015
Bella scoperta!! Bottiglia del 2013. Aroma dato dalla fermentazione in botte di rovere molto gradevole. Al palato appare molto dolce (vaniglia, frutti rossi, caramello e zucchero). Bel equilibrio. Ottima

Bottle. Light hazy deep brown liquid with mahogany hue and medium light tan head. Aroma of red berries, vanilla, wood, toffee, light booze and dried fruit. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter with notes of toffee, vanilla, oak and dried fruit. Medium to full bodied with medium carbonation. Pretty nice, balanced oak character.

Cellared for three years. Was remarkable in its smoothness and in the stewed fruit qualities therein. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750 ml bottle.Pours deep brown with a tiny greyish beige head.Nice toffee and caramel malt base, with some spciy and even mint aromas. Interesting. Smooth medium body, nice subtle whisky sweetness, some sour touch to it. Taste is mainly roasted malts, a bit of peat. Nice beer.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2015 2013 vintage Bottle from Delhaize Brugge, Sint Kruis, consumed at Lynn & Barrys, Merton, Oxon, Wednesday 31st December 2014 Pours dark brown with filmy head. Oak ageing really pushing through, very noticeable but in a good way, I like what it has done here it really leaves a profound mark on this beer. Soft in mouth a little boozy but again in a very pleasant way. Lots of creamy, smooth vanilla flavours and also some typical Belgian flavours. Thoroughly enjoyed this, one of the better oak aged beers. A8 A4 T8 P4 Ov17 4.1

75cl bottle. Deep ruby red to pitch body, firm lasting beige head. Nose is blackcurrants, cherries, oak, tannines, a little sour plus a certain booziness. Taste is warming, lots of the expected rum soaked cake fruits, lots of wood, deep and rich. Aftertaste is dark fruit and light bitter and a bit dry from the oak aging. A wonderfull oaked aged version of a great quad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
