Thanks Eugene. Pours a hazy burnt orange / copper look. no head. The nose is pretty sweet and almost like burnt brown sugar. very sweet beer. certainly an oak presence. has a thin oily mouthfeel. fig and raisin for sure and some toasted oak and a bit of vanilla really nice with some roasted beef.

mile (3121) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 19, 2014
Bottle. Golden, hazy, small and fully diminishing head. Moderate malty and sweetish aroma, caramel ans some honey, light alcohol. Body is medium to full, malty – lightly wheaty and sweetish, some caramel, honey - some fruitiness and light alcohol Finish is average, malty –lightly wheaty and sweetish, some caramel and honey, light fruitiness and some alcohol. Caramel sweetish tripel with honey. I did not get any oak here. Quite one-dimensional and way too sweet for me.
