*alternately known as "Smaug."

Appearance: Pours a murky, dark brown body, with a three-inch-high, lofty, airy, tan-hued head.

Smell: An initial impression of spiced chocolate fast followed by a strong dark fruitiness and sweet-scented, heavy treacle element. Moderate Tennessee whiskey scents throughout.

Taste: Roast bucked and edged by a strong dark fruitiness of succulently ripe plums and figs (also some muddled 'nana and pear). A bit sweet. Pinch of ground spices with an earthy tone to them. Integrated Jack Daniel's character that emboldens into the finish and warming choco-spice aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium-high carbonation.

Overall: It's nice, for a barrel-aged Belgian... thing.
