Reviewed on 9/10/11
Poured in to a Duvel tulip. 2 finger, fluffy, off-white head. Clear, dark golden body.
Aroma had a good fruitiness to it. Some moderate swetness. Lots of oak and some subtle pomegranete showing. Mild spiceness.
Taste is where it got really unique some great complexity. Moderate sweetness with some strong vanilla flavors. Lots of fruit with pomegranete really coming through. Somewhat earthy. Good amount of oak. Light spiciness. A bit bready and caramely.
Mouthfeel had a medium/heavy body with a medium carb. Slightly sticky and chewy.
Overall i thought it was good and very unique. Sweetness and high abv limit the drinkability but otherwise it was very good. Can't wait to see what it tastes like with some aging.
Serving type: bottle
