Bottle from Tavour Copper brown in color with a small off white head that dissipates quickly. Dark fruit light chocolate with some earthy notes and a bit of vanilla and faint oak tannin. A bit of warming alcohol comes out especially as she warms. Well made dark sipper.

BuckeyeBoy (9353) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 11, 2016
750ml bottle pours out a hazy amber topped with a sand head. Nose has a lot going on candy licorice fruit and a nice oak barrel. Taste is more of the oak barrel plenty of sweetness pitfruit.

A wonderful beer. Dark fruits, some candy sugar, dark brown appearance, and a strong Belgian yeasty finish.

(750ml bottle) Pours a deep mahogany body with a medium beige head. Aroma of raisins, bourbon, bubblegum, dates, and chocolate. Flavor of oak, raisins, dates, bourbon, roasted grain, and chocolate with a dry finish.

djd07 (16554) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 12, 2015
Bottle. Pours a cloudy amber with frothy off white head that lasts. The aroma is oak, licorice, raisin. Medium mouth, sweet roast, similar flavors to nose, hides alcohol well, very good.

In short: A sweet Belgian-ish burgundy ale with mild barrel notes. Interesting but too sweet.
How: Bottle 750ml, not sure about the age, don’t remember when/how I acquired the bottle, probably in a trade.
The look: Cloudy burgundy body topped by a persistent medium beige head.
In long: Nose has berries-like fruitiness, Melba Toasts and a woody whisky/bourbon that works surprisingly well with the rest of the beer. In mouth the beer has a thick fluffy texture supported by a lively belgian carbonation that didn’t suffer from the barrel aging. Taste offers a wide array of flavors. There is a strong toastiness in a crunchy malt backbone that feels like toasted hay and dry bread crumbs. There is an unusual fruitiness that feels like a blend of melons and berries. Sucking on barley candies dipped in caramel. A mild presence of bourbon barrels with a certain perfumy character that feels Jack-Daniels-ish. Barrel aging is really not overdone although there is quite a bit of vanilla. There is a good complexity here but unfortunately the sweetness was just too much for me. A Dark Saison aged in bourbon barrels… and I just complained out loud "they don’t make beers like they used to" in case your grandfather is looking for someone to hang out with.
