4.47/5 rDev +4.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Serving Type - 22oz bottle
Appearance - Brownish ruby tan, 1/4 white creamy head, some decent lacing.
Smell - Barley, Lots of fruits, some oak, malts, spices, carmal, some vanilla, more bourbon/whiskey aroma. And also hasa distint alcohol smell.
Taste - Well this is something special. Lots of oaked bourbon and carmal nail you at first sip. Lots of sweet fruits like apple, plum, fig and grapes. You can tell this is a big beer, plenty of alcohol warmth in each drink, but theres a load of flavors to balance it out some. The yeast give it the tradmark belgian flavor we all come to know.
Mouthfeel - Alot going on, this will wreck mouth with all the goodness mentioned. The whiskey coats everything in sight, the fruits add sweetness to the tounge, and palette is left sweetened, bittered, and ready for more. Aftertaste is bourbon, yeast, and alcohol warmth.
Overall - Really special. Tons of flavor, fun to drink, espically if you like aged in whiskey barrel beers. This is a big beer, meant to be enjoy on occassion, and with a fan of the style. Fantasic, hope i can find another bottle to age.

A-Pours a clear, glowing orange color. Wine-like legs on the glass. Thin, off-white head. Minimal lace.
S-Old, dusty, dried out oak barrels. to picking up much of the Belgian yeast, definitely more British in my opinion. Caramel liqueur. Estery...maybe I am getting some Belgian yeast because I'm getting some apple notes too.
T-Quite sweet. Loads of caramel, vanilla extract, toffee and some brown sugar. Fruity yeastiness. Integrated bourbon notes. Finishes with that old, dried out oakiness. Both the Belgian and British elements come to fruition.
M-Sweetness and feel make this one a sipper as it should be. Soft carbonation. Heat is integrated well, too. Some age has helped to mellow this one.
O/D-This probably has about a year or more on it age wise. It's has mellowed and integrated itself. It's tasty but I must say I can imagine that I may have enjoyed it more fresh but how should I know? An expensive beer, I remember it being around $23 for a bomber. It got better after each sip.
