A- pours a dark grape Hue, complete with a two finger off white head that dissipates quickly. Lacing is abundant.

S- grape dominant. Like alcoholic grapefruit juice. Lambic like. The most grape forward beer I have ever had.

T- Grape again, no alcohol at all, finishes with a nice cinnamon quality. The only criticism I could give, would be that the beer doesn't really. Very wine like.

M- very light bodied for such a strong beer.

O- great beer for a warm night, and a fantastic ale for the wine lover. Probably my favorite beer in the style, although it does lack some complexity.

My absolute favorite beer that I have access to.
Smell, color and of course taste. It's everything I want in a beer.
Opaque, dark brown near black, fruity nose and initial taste then as
To the Belgium yeast. I love Belgium beers and I love strong dark ales the most
and this is the best I've had. Well worth the price.
