2013 vintage. Pours hazy, orange-brown in color with minimal head. Taste is raisin, caramel, vanilla, oak, PALE MALT, and bourbon. Tastes like an English barleywine. There is a dryness that comes from the wood, but this beer is heavy bodied, very sweet with moderate to low carbonation. One of the more complex and better beers I have had in the style. A real treat. Well worth seeking out.

2013. Bourbon Barrel aged.

Poured a light brown tea color in a Stone snifter with a 2F head.

Candy heaven, aroma, malt, sugar. Wonderfully strong.

Biting, tangy MF.

The aroma transitions to the taste and more: plum, raisin, candy.
Fantastic beer. So classically Belgian.

Bottled and possibly bottle conditioned and definitely a gusher
Pours a browns sugar body with splatterings of tan head
Smells like bourbon and barley sugar
That's the flavour
Just so solid
