12 oz. bottle poured into a Duvel tulip (1/30/14)

A: Hazy relatively dark brown with almost no head on even a vigorous pour. There is a tinge of a head and a collar.
S: Sweet malts and the essence of pine. Some notes of oak as well with the strength of molasses.
T: This definitely needs to be had warm. Pretty un-distinct in that it just tastes like that catch-ale that is Old Ales and Strong Ales and what not. Not much or molasses in there, but a bit of oak. More oak comes out as it warms.
M: Smooth, but let it warm up first.
O: I'm normally a fan of this style, but it just doesn't wow me.
