Had on tap at the Taphouse on Queensway in Hampton, VA.

Appearance: Served in a chalice, it is a dark amber brown color, with 1 finger tan head, leaves considerable lacing

Smell: Very fruity, reminds me most of sweet grapes and cherries, with some good darker malts

Taste: Very sweet, I would almost consider it a desert beer. It is mostly sweet grapes and cherries, with a good helping of Belgian yeast funk. Very complex and enjoyable.

Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied, medium carbonation, very smooth texture

Overall: This was awesome. Had no idea this was even available on tap. Not cheap, but worth it. Will definitely look for in bottles.
