Corked and caged 750 ml bottle shared with Dad. Pours dark reddish brown, some purple color, creamy one finger white to off white head. Aroma has much more fruit character than the 12, with lots of sweet cherry notes, caramel malts, funky Belgian yeast of course, and candi sugar. Much more muted hop notes here than the 12 as well. Flavor follows the smell closely with big sweet fruit flavors--tastes like the added cherries to this one, but can’t find info on fruit additions--light spice, candi sugar and sweet malts. Very smooth and pleasant. Sweet but not cloying. Medium carbonation and plus body. This was really nice.
