From the brewer

Silky smooth and full of flavor, this beer is a blend of our Barrel-Aged Ovila Abbey Dubbel and Barrel-Aged Ovila Abbey Brown Ale with Mandarins and Cocoa. With a deep mahogany color, the beer is rich with flavors of molasses and brown sugar with a hint of orange and a distinct dried fruit character from a year in brandy barrels.

unknown release
Fruity, round plum flavor is dominant, rounded out with caramel bourbon. Definitely sweet, and I think you'd want to be in a sherry/port mood if you were going to drink this. Great fit if you were, though.
