Bottle, big thanks to Adrian from BA for sharing! It pours darkest brown with a small light tan head. The nose is big on the coffee, roasted malt, cocoa, dark fruit, light acidity, salted caramel and vanilla. The taste is roasted malt, coffee, alcohol heat, touch of chilli, wood, some acidity and earth with a dry, roasty finish. Medium-full body, fine carbonation and sticky mouth-feel. Perhaps a bit hot. Gets better the more you drink. Decent, but I couldn’t drink too much. djd07 (15544) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 15, 2014

Belgian-pour produces a huge, creamy multi-hued tan head that slowly dissipates. The smell is nice, coffee, brownies, roasted malt. Mouthfeel is thick and viscous. Flavor is bittersweet through and through. Ashy coffee and malts, a bit of booze. I like the ashy astringency but the high sugary booze character blending with it can be too much at times. A solid beer htough. I think the cherry oak treatment of this beer was the best so far.
