Poured from 11.2oz bottle into Chimay goblet.

A - Ivory head that dissipates quickly. Dark color as expected from a quad.

S - Sharp, wine-like woody nose.

T - Smokey wood, sweet malts, and fig with an alcohol bite. Some spice, but nothing overpowering.

M - Very powerful alcohol warmth. Creamy malt on the palate.

The wine barrel oak provides a nice smokey flavor which is not as overpowering as most oaked beers. This is a trade-off as you lose some of the standard Belgian Quad candy qualities. Not a beer I would drink regularly, but it's a nice beer to savor on occasion. Certainly one of the better oaked beers I've ever had.
