A richly flavored brew that is really smooth, dark, dank and delicious. Very expensive but you get what you pay for and pour for, right?
Find one, buy one.

Poured into a thick walled goblet, with a moderate pour generates a solid finger thick white tan head which sticks around for a while. On the nose there's the obvious Belgian characteristics, spicy, rich yeast etc. Taste yields an additional nip and warmth, presumably from the brandy barrels, rich chocolate notes, along with subtle fruits such as oranges, plums, and surprisingly ripe dark cherries. Mouthfeel is thick and sticky, as well as being quite viscous, but doesn't overstay its welcome and become overpowering. Overall a very cool experiment from Sierra Nevada, it's everything a trip in the woods brew should be.
