Draught sample at "Shuk HaBeera" festival in Tel Aviv. According to the brewmaster he used bourbon-soaked oak chips. Black with a beige head. Roasty aroma with some milk-chocolate, wood, coffee, a bit of fruits and bourbon hints. Sweet flavor with chocolate, coffee beans, light acidic hints, wood, a bit of nutty notes and a pleasant dry finish. Rounded-mouthfeel. Nice.
