Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a New Belgium Globe glass. Bottle says best enjoyed by August of 2014.

Appearance: Pours a deep brownish amber with some ruby. Moderate amount of bubbles and about two fingers of off white head that slowly recede into a thin creamy layer. Leaves a good of amount of clinging lacing.

Smell: A sweet, yeasty, and fruity Belgian tinged aroma with lots of cherries. Belgian yeast with some hints of funk, pepper, and cloves. Toasted malts with hints of caramel, toffee, biscuit, chocolate, coffee, and grains. Sweet candied sugar and molasses. Lots of fruit with big hints of cherries and dark raisin, figs, dates, plum, and prune. Also some hints of bananas, apple, tea leaves, tobacco, and leather. Subtle presence of earthy hops in the background. A nicely complex aroma.

Taste: Like the aroma hints, a complex and sweet taste of yeast, dark fruit esters, and toasty malt. Belgian yeast upfront with notes of clove, pepper, and funk. Toasted malts with bready notes of biscuit, caramel, toffee, chocolate, coffee, and grain. Belgian candied sugar and molasses sweetness. Big fruit taste with some notes of banana, apple, and lots of cherries throughout. Dark fruit notes of figs, dates, raisin, plum, and prune juice. Also some notes of tea, leather, and tobacco. Taste is sweet and somewhat tart but not cloying. Pretty good.

Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Rich, creamy, chewy, and somewhat slick. A little alcohol heat is felt.

Overall: A pretty interesting and good beer. Good cherry flavor with a good presence of spicy yeast and toasty malt. Sweet and rich but not too sweet.

Color - thick and cloudy unfiltered maple syrup.

Aroma- sweet nutty caramel.

Taste- Starts with a velvety dark cherry note mildly shifting to a buttery Belgian yeasty spiciness, finishing with a dark chocolate dry lingering beauty.

Poured from 650 ml bomber into a Liefmans Goudenband glass (my preferred all purpose beer tasting glass). Tasted 5/4/13.
