Cherry and dark fruit smell. Also a hint of chocolate.
The taste of cherry's really comes thru. Nice creamy head which pored about a 2 finger head.

This was a great beer, loved every second of it. After it warmed up a little, since I opened it right out of a 35 degree fridge, more of the dark fruit and cherry smell and taste came out which was very pleasant. But also more of a alcohol taste came with it. I am getting another one of these to keep for a while, especially since this one was bottled in 8/10, the month I was married.
Those monks know how to live!!!
