Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass.
There is not much head given to this off the pour, what is presented is a faint tan to white head that settles quickly to a thin collar. Body color is a deep orange, and very murky. Quite unattractive with blotchy colors of yellow and brown. Collar barely maintains any presence while resting.
Nose though is quite enjoyable. Lots of toasty vanilla and caramel sensations, but not much else. However it doesn't have a slight sucrose like quality, but not much else. Quite impressive if some of the classic Belgian characters seem to be shelved a bit.
Palate comes with a very thick but controlled body. Thick sugary malts and lots of light brown sugar flavor. Large rounding oak notes, and a sharp clove like sensing finish. Chewy palate of dense dark sugary sensing malts, with a nice sharp hot brown spices continuing. Moderate amounts of peach and orange fruit to compliment.
A nice example of a tripel that has done well in a barrel.
