Enjoyed at the Belgian Beer Fest

A - Poured a nice deep right almost garnet hue with a slight creamy head that hung around for quite some time.

S - Interesting here. Super light oak, belgian spices, dark fruits, light chocolate. Kinda odd, a nice melding of the two.

T - Similar to the nose in that this is a nice little crossover in the two styles. Good earthy oak, light chocolate, belgian spices. Not bad.

M - Smooth and creamy, this is a nice mouthfeel and the strong ABV isnt noticeable.

O - While I enjoyed this beer I feel it needed abit more oak and stout presence. Still, I do enjoy smuttynose and would try this in bottle if given the chance.
