From a bottle, pours a dark cola brown with a still wispy light than head.

The flavor is tart, a bit of funk, dark malt, caramel, dried fruit, figs, raisins, molasses. The flavor is much more oaky, red wine fruit notes, vanilla, anise and raisins. It is a bit sticky on the finish and a lot of alcohol present despite the age laying down.

Overall, this is pretty good, but could still benefit from more time too.

Lovely, really lovely barrel-aged ale.
Slightly sweet, slightly unctuous, but with enough dried fruit, spice , fig flavors to
get you salivating for more. Despite its richness and sweetness does not tire out your palate one bit. Domestic producers of this style should pay heed.
Sweet malty molasses up front, mid-palate the oak turning this into toffee and dark fruit flavors.
The dark fruit and spice flavors remain on the finish along with a trace of sherry, giving you an appetite for more.
Alcohol is not noticed on the nose or palate, but at 14% it is there and eventually felt, in a very pleasant way.
I'm told this a a young brewery, but they are doing it old-world style.

Drank from my Duvel Tulip

A - Pours a caramel. brown colour with a red tinge, with frothy tanned head that disappears fairly quickly

S - Wow..Toffee, caramel, dark fruit, get some port/sherry, also get notes of chocolate/cocoa and quite sweet or tart like.

T - Sweetness up front with prunes, molasses, dark fruit and spice, with hints of vanilla and oak. Although the 14% ABV is well hidden it has a slight acidic taste at the finish

M - Medium bodied with light carbonation with that slightly acidic finish

O - I liked it as nice quiet sipping beer that you can enjoy on a cold night. A little too sweet for me and lacks the full flavour I was expecting. Nonetheless worth a try.
