Well to taste this beer I was extremely lucky. I made friends with a guy who owns a bar in Philadelphia who went to Belgium. He brought back a good amount from the trip and this was one beer that we had tried.
It poured a dark brown with a one finger tan head. Right after the initial pour you could smell chocolate, caramel, and hints of sour cherries. The taste was the same maybe with a little hint of coffee. I found this beer to be very drinkable. It had a great balance of all the right flavors. A little hops in there as well. I would definitely find this beer and drink it again!

Bottle: Poured a dark brown color ale with a large light brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of dry fruits with quite a bit of residual sugar and some Belgian biscuit malt notes. Taste is dominated by light dry fruits notes with some Belgian cookie malt and quite a bit of residual sugar. Body is full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Not bad overall but lacking complexities for the style.

A creamy beige head leaving lacings forms over a brown to reddish body. Aroma is caramel and light roasted malts . A touch of spices too. The flavor is mostly sweet (dried fruits and chocolate) and has a light bitterness. Full body, pleasant carbonation. Not my type of beer, but a decent one for the style.
