Pours a deep amber with a white foam collar. Aroma of dark fruits and a wine like barrel note. Sweet, fruity and oaky aroma. In the taste, nice and malty, with candied nuts, cocoa, fruity wine, and dark fruit. The body is juicy, yet semi dry and has a rock solid carbonation earned from blending a portion from steel fermenters as well as barrel aging and blending. Overall, this is a winner. A very lively Belgian Strong Dark ale.

The beer pours a decent brownish tan head that dissipates fairly quickly but still leaves enough of a creamy covering over the beer. The beer itself is an opaque dark purple brown color and leaves quite a bit of lacing on the glass. The beer smell has very strong wheat and barley smell that overtakes the other smells. The smell also has dark fruits and Belgian candi sugar notes underneath the malts. The barely smells a little burnt. The taste has the same notes as the smell but with a different intensity. The Belgian candy sugar and dark raisin notes dominate the taste while the barely shows up to take off the edge a little bit. The mouthfeel is heavy bodied with biting carbonation. The feel is slick. Overall, a pretty god beer and worth getting.

The aroma has roasted malt, chocolate, sweet caramel, and cffee.
The flavor follows of chocolate, porter roasted malt quality, and then plums and a yeast. A lacking mid palate then onto an oak quality.
The beer is quite sweet and bready, but dries off on the finish with woody oak barrel.
