Poured into my Belgian glass this beautiful ale pours dark and murky brown. A rocky dense white head sit on top with a little brown in the middle from the yeast. The foamy head sticks to the side of the glass as it is drank and swirled. The only thing that can be improved is maybe a little more clarity to allow some more color to come through.
This brew packs a powerful aroma and flavor. Smells of yeast and cherries and raisins followed by medicinal alcohol come through.
Flavors of rich malt and yeast are followed by dark plum and strong alcohol and a bitter earthy aftertaste. The alcohol is a little too powerful in the finish. Overall this is an intense beer with very complex flavors and moderate drinkability. Definatley one to seek out.

Beervana. Have been looking for this for several months when I finally found it and snatched it up. Chilled it to about 60°, then poured into a tulip glass. Appearance dark brown with a bit of reddish hue, half inch of fine small bubbled head, and good lacing. Some yeast sediment which aided in dispersing carbonation. Smell is amazing. Great Belgian yeast Aroma, brown bread, dark cherries, and a hint of brown sugar. Taste is amazing. Complex, with dark fruits, cola, toasted brown bread, and grape nuts giving way to a tart cherry and dried plum, with a bit of alcohol heat, but not what you'd expect, considering the ABV. Finished sweet and rich, with a lingering raisin toast flavor that faded towards coffee and burnt sugar, in a good way. I believe that this is the best beer I have ever had, and I've had quite a few trippels and quads, but this is simply outstanding. Wish it was more readily available.
