Overall it was just to much ABV without any smooth good taste.

A - Very cloudy, brown ale. Very thin tan head lingers and just holds on. Very thick legs, this brew is going to be a monster!

S - Huge Belgian sugars and yeast. Lots of vanilla, oak, sugar. Really, really impressed that this doesn't smell boozy.

T - Smack right in the mouth. Very sweet and loaded with vanilla. Lots of caramel and oak. As it warms up it's becoming an oak bomb. A little alcohol finish, but not bad for the abv.

F - Very sticky and thick. Slight alcohol burn and no carbonation, surprise!!

O - Really fun play on the big Belgian ale, but doesn't quite hit the mark as it's way too strong.
