9.7% ABV
750ML Brown Bottle $11 State Steet Northampton MA
Appearance: Tea color, considerable sedimentation in the bottle
Small head dissipated pretty quickly leaving bubbles on rim
Smell: bright and sweet maybe a little fresh wood and caramel - fantastic aroma
Flavor:very unique, foamy with a bit of alcohol bite. A little too much tannin for me.
Kind of a licorice flavor late in the swallow
Overall: 2.5/5 The bottle says that it is a blend of Belgian Ale with Kriek and Cherry Ale, but I don't get
any cherry at all. It's not terrible, but I wouldn't pick it up again.

Pours a hazy, dark amber body with a big creamy head. Smells of dark fruits like cherries, dates, and raisins, and at almost 10% alcohol it makes an appearance aswell. Taste is essentially the same as the smell would imply, very sweet, fruity and the alcohol packs a punch but is still enjoyable. Has a very thick mouth feel, it kinda leaves a film coating your mouth, and it has fairly low carbonation. Overall pretty good beer, but is a bit on the pricy side.

I was pissed off how much I paid for it. I'm a cheap batard. But oh my! It hasn't been this good since I was in Brugge. Their making this in New York! Lordy, we might find some monks out of work!
