Pours dark brown, almost black with lots of tan head that lingers and leaves some lacing.

Nose has Belgian yeast, spice, caramel, chocolate, coffee.

The taste follows the nose closely. Smooth.

Great beer! (210 characters)

2013 Reserve, aged in Pinot Noir barrels for 13 months.

A- Pours a dark opaque black with almost a finger's worth of off-white coffee head that recedes to a wispy layer, lively carbonation.

S- Decent amount of Belgian influenced spices with a distinct presence of Belgian yeast, pinot noir barrel makes itself known by adding a light citrus vinous aspect, underlying notes of chocolate, coffee, and caramel. Definitely a lot going on here but seems to all intertwine.

T- Opens up with a lot of citrus vinous notes, some oak, Belgian spices that fade after letting it open up but definitely still make their presence known, underlying notes of light caramel, coffee, and dark chocolate. Finishes with a lingering vinous aftertaste that coats the palate.

M- Very smooth, perfect carbonation for style.

O- Although I've never had the base beer to compare, this beer was super unique. While I liked the interplay of the Pinot Noir with the spices, at times it became a little bit too vinous for my preference. Not something that I would seek out to try again and probably my least favorite of the barrel-aged DDC offerings I've had so far, but definitely a beer I enjoyed the chance having to try. (1,209 characters)
