Pours a great black color with excellent initial head, but very little lacing. Huge deep scent, although with a lot of bourbon in the nose; nice slight bitter scent underneath and a nice malt backbone. Very nice taste, with a good deep roasted malt tone, nice bitter aftertaste; just wish the bourbon barrel flavors would take more of a back seat, as they are up front and hurt the great Belgian IPA flavors; decent fruity-spicy aftertaste to go with the bourbon. Goes down decent, but a bit rough from the bourbon barrel.
