Poured from a 12.7 oz corked bottle into a 14 oz "pint" glass. Pours reddish orange with a small white head. Smells of piney hops and some Belgian yeast. Tastes of Belgian yeast with some piney hops with a bit of barrel age aftertaste. Beer is slightly heavily carbonated but finishes nice for a medium body. Overall a very good beer.

Serving type: bottle

On tap at Sticks and Stones.Poured into a stemmed glass a slight hazed deep auburn color with a fluffy white head that lasted for quite awhile.Carmael and dark fruit stood out most in the nose with mild phenols and vanilla detected as well.Somewaht sweet upfront with caramel and vanilla flavors with lighter than expected spiced phenols coming into play with a decent drying toasted oak flavors lingering in the finish.The barrel doesn't play a huge role in this either does the phenols,maybe a slightly tame version of the style,still not bad.

Serving type: on-tap
