Pours dark brown, hazy with a nice level of carbonation.
Immediately the cherries and the spicy belgian yeast is apparent. the head gives off a great aroma, i can tell this is gonna be tasty
heavy carbonation hits the tongue and slowly backs off to subtle cherry, leather, oak and earthy notes. very dry finish.
the alcohol is not really evident until way after you've finished your sip and a warming sensation comes over you.
the time i've let it sit in the cellar may have led to it's dryness which is really enjoyable and the subtle yet complex cherry flavors are really nice with the belgian yeast coming through.
this is my most successful attempt at cellaring.
it would be great with duck and its great with a good dark chocolate.
