(thanks for sharing!) Sampled draft @ The Beavertown Extravaganza 2017. Day 1. Black dark brown, solid head. Nose is fascinating mix of umami, soy sauce & massive vinous character, tobacco. Taste is unique alcoholic, vinous, boozy syrup but also molasses, coffee, low soy sauce. Body is thick syrup, boozy. Unique, fascinating, very neat. SinH4 (5693) - Garching b.

Tap. Black color with white head. Aroma is coffee, roasted malts, chocolate, liquorice, just a touch of wildness (of which I'd expect more from such a barrel, but then again, Dieu du Ciel knows how to use barrels in a restrained way). Taste is chocolate, coffee, a bit vanilla. Medium carbonation, viscous oily mouthfeel. Very nice!

UPDATED: AUG 5, 2017 2017-05-11. 341ml bottle (thx, Alex G.!). Bottled on 2015-09-11. Pours an almost black with a dark beige head. Aroma is lots of barrel notes, fruitiness, and berries. Very nice. Taste is similar with chocolate, caramel, lots of grapes notes. Same aftertaste. Amazing stuff!
2017-08-04. 341ml bottle. Bottled on 2016-09-06. Aroma is very fruity, with barrel and winey notes. Taste is similar - winey, fruity, but with very noticeable woody and roasted malt notes. A little bit harsh. It seems it needs some more time in the bottle to get better.
