A: Pours a crystal clear dark cola brown in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising quickly from the bottom of the glass and crimson highlights. The beer has a finger tall creamy foamy tan head that reduces to very large patch of medium thick film covering the majority of the surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to heavy amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of dark fruits (plum, raisin, and fig), dark malts, spices (clove and pepper), and distinctive Belgian yeast. Light to moderate aromas of rum and oak barrels.

T: Upfront there is a moderate flavor of dark malts with dark fruit sweetness including plum, fig, and raisin. That is followed by flavors of spices including clove and pepper, distinctive Belgian yeast, and rum + oak barrel. Light amounts of bitterness in the finish which fades quickly and a light amount of rum/alcohol flavors which lingers.

M: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Light to moderate amounts of alcohol warming in the finish.

O: I found this to be a very enjoyable barrel aging on a dubbel - not a combination that I have had a lot of times. I chose the rum barrel aged beer on this cold evening because rum reminds me of the Caribbean and I needed some warm thoughts...and the alcohol warming as well.

2013 vintage, 22oz vintage poured into a tulip glass

A- pours a murky mahogany brown color with a small khaki colored foamy head that reduces completely, leaving nothing behind, lots of light-brown floaties moving around the bottom of the glass

S- lots of candied Belgian sugar aromas up front that mixes with aromas of licorice, raisin, dark cherry, oak, vanilla & brandy

T- lots of dark fruit up front with flavors of cherry, fig and raisin. Candied Belgian sugar mixes with notes of toasted brown bread, peppery spice, clove, brandy, caramel malt, and burnt brown sugar. Oak barrel aging adds a vinous quality to it with highlight of red wine, eventually finishing sweet with a candied fruit linger

M- medium viscous body with low carbonation leads to a creamy and chewy mouthfeel that follows through to the finish, with a silky smooth linger

O- lots of dark fruit flavors mix well with the barrel aging. I nice slow sipper that opens up as it warms
