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.

On tap at Borefts Beer Festival 2012
A: Pours dark brown / black with a nice creamy off-white head.
S: Smell is very bourbony, with loads of vanilla, coconut, some oak along with light roasted and caramel malts. Very sweet .
T: Taste is quite similar to the nose upfront, with lots of vanilla, bourbon, a bit of booze, some caramel malts and molasses. Sweet. It becomes more fruity while warming with dried fruits, red fruits and berries. Quite interesting.
M: Medium to full bodied, not sticky, nice.
O: A bit sweet and heavy to my taste but with a good complexity given the high bourbon scene here. Quite enjoyable.

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.

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.

On tap at Beachwood BBQ & Brewing in Long Beach, CA.

Pours a clear super dark crimson-brown with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, caramel, toffee, banana, and slight bourbon aromas. Taste is much the same with slightly sour fruit and bourbon flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of woody bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer but the sourness I am getting in the flavor is a bit odd.
