Damnation Batch 23 (Oak Aged)

From notes: Thanks go out to Robet for a chance to try this at a recent Brick Store gathering.
A lighter than expected golden pour with a nose that reflects the oak. Robert said that chips were used rather than the barrel but to me it’s difficult to detect such a nuance.
A light smokiness in the nose and taste which is probably a combination of the oak and my inability to pik it up correctly. Some of us at the tasting also got some estery pear notes. i got a touch of pineapple too. However, to me any fruit and Belgian charcter is swamped a bit by the oak and I lose the subtle edge of the brew.
Pretty drinkable, but doesn’t mesh all that well for me.
