A: Pours a dark ruby/mahogany color with a little over a fingers worth of tan/brown head that relatively slowly dies down to a spotty cap

S: Some nice roasted and Belgian qualities to start things off. Definite Belgian yeast along with a light roast, dark chocolate, and dark fruits followed by a very light hint of oak and bourbon. Alcohol covered well

T: Starts off with a mixture of oak, wood, Belgian yeast, roasted malts and dark fruit. Some bourbon and light alcohol heat make a quick presence towards the finish. Some vinous qualities make their way in around the middle. Finishes with a nice nutty/toffee note

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: A nicely layered and complex brew. Just the right amount of barrel presence to make itself known, as it's not overwhelming by any means. Certainly don't go in expecting to be overpowered by the barrel. Pricey, but worth it at least once
