Poured a pretty much "black body" with one finger head and lace patches. Booze first hits me in the nose, then some oaky woodiness and then dark fruits but also a bit vinous. In the taste I get that sense of booze as well, and this is a hearty, full-bodied beer, but also some dark fruit splashes and hints of vanilla/sugary sweetness, as well as touches of light fruit sweetness and grape. This beer is all over the place and not the greatest but a balanced and good beer to try (wouldn't call this a quad but really don't know how to classify some of these hybrid styles that are coming out).

Serving type: on-tap

Had this on tap at churchkey at Zwanze day 2013.

Pours a still looking dark brown color with no head or lacing. Like a still liquor.

The smell is huge, a big mix of thick sweet malts (like a strong ale), some Belgian yeast, a big dose of the oak and barrel with the wine shining through like a big cab, overall it really reminds me of a strong ale in many ways like an older viscosity. The taste follows suit like a strong ale with a strong slightly bitter malt presence and a bit of grapes in the back palate. I like the taste a lot, but I knock it a bit for not really being a quad in the flavor profile.

The feel is nice, not much burn for 14%! Thick silky mouthfeel.

Overall very nice, one if my favorites from the brewery.
