look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Pour: Dark red in color with a slight chestnut brown hue around the edges. Two fingers of tan head with average retention and minimal lacing.
Smell: Dark cherries dominate the aroma with an underlying hint of caramel and brown sugar.
Taste: Molasses and toffee base supporting the sweet and tart fruity taste of green apple, plum, and black cherry. Slightly bitter finish with a hint of burnt sugar and some alcohol burn. Delicious.
Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied, creamy, and with medium to high carbonation.
Drinkability/Overall: Smooth drinking yet complex beer. Definitely a sipper and I can feel the calories, but very good.
Final Notes: Yet another delicious Belgian brew. Sweet, fruity, and warming. Excellent dessert beer or a great choice to warm you up by the fireplace.

Dark brown color with red highlights and with a huge thick beige head with great retention and leaving some laces.
Aroma with notes of prunes, chocolate, nuts and molasses.
Very nice flavor with notes of chocolate, spices, prunes, figs, grapes, pears and cola. Just a hint of tartness and bitterness. Dry and mildly bitter aftertaste.
Medium body with appropriate lively carbonation. Alcohol of 8.5% abv was dangerously masked.
Outstanding beer, tasty and still very easy to drink. Perfectly balancing fruity sweetness with some tartness and bitterness, not a single sharp edge and with enough complexity to make it interesting. And despite its high abv I could have drunk a few bottles. I was expecting a sipper, but you know what, this was actually good.
Not sure why this one tasted so much better than the first I tried a long time ago.
