Outstanding brew! "Dark sided quad. Intense malt background, quite intense roast character, dried fruits, lovely candy, toffee, licorice, decent hop presence. Feels quite vinous with dry finish.
Mostly sweet with decent bitterness. Lovely and highly enjoyable brew." And this is boosted by awesome oaky characteristics giving indept addition of aroma dimension - wild dark choco, figs, dried fruits.
Top class brew!

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.
