Pouring into a Harpoon tulip, the beer appeared to be fairly dark, small tan head, and fairly carbonated. Smell was complex and remnisicent of their Robust Porter. Taste was much stronger, and there were a number of flavors present including chocolatey malt and a very faint bourbon twang. The beer was quite carbonated which is my only real downside with the beer.
Stouts are not my favorite style, and an oddity like a Belgian-yeast based Stout with some barrel aging is unlikely to be heavy in my drinking rotation. With that said, this beer is one hundred percent appopriate for a late fall/early winter evening. Check out ratings at Beeradvocate and Ratebeer.
