Poured a basically dark brown body with good one finger head and lace patches. The aroma first strikes me as boozy and floral hops but then I get a chunk of both sweetness like licorice, candi sugar and some dark fruits like figs. The beer is easy to drink as its smooth with a boozy, woody body underneath holding it all together. To me, the beer is mostly sweet with a caramel or toffee edge with very minor hops and at times both dark fruits and a sour cherry edge come through.

Draft @ Borefts 2012. Dark brown with a huge mocha head. Tad vinous nose, big dark fruits, bourbon, molasses, figs and prunes. Sweet mocha, bourbon, vinous, dark malts, ripe and overripe dark fruits, belgian style, prunes, figs, bitter spices, touch wood, some coffee roast in the back, serious bourbon in here, thick flavour and body, this is a pretty damn impressive Belgian.

Sampled from a 750ml bottle purchased at their bottle shop in Brugges.

Very inviting appearance and aroma. I wasn't too sure about a bourbon barrel aged Belgian Dark Strong but this really works. The bourbon level is enough to add a new dimension without detracting from the Belgian characteristics (sugars, spicy notes, etc).

I really like this beer and wish I'd bought more to age.

Cask at Delirium Cafe

Pours deep brown with no head. Looks a little thin. Smell is booze and fruits, mostly plum. A decent amount of vanilla and some oak come through as well. Taste is boozy, with dark malts, dark fruits of raisin and plum, a slight tartness, some chocolate, vanilla and oak. Mouthfeel is actually a but thin, with warming booze throughout. This was quite tasty, if too boozy. I have a feeling this would be better on CO2 than cask, but will probably never get to find out. Still quite enjoyable.
