look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Dark maroon color with fluffy, toffee colored head. Murky enough that I cannot see through to tell on carbonation.

S - Dark fruits, mainly raisins and figs mixed with plenty of spice. Cinnamon, nutmeg, and coriander are very strong.

T - Malty upfront with a wave of dark fruits. Finishes heavy on the spice and leaves a little burn on the tongue. Although this is 10%, I cannot pick up and taste of alcohol.

M - Rich and layered. A little burn on the tongue but soft at the same time.

D - Easy to drink. The alcohol is not noticeable at all.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Snagged a single for $3.59 from Vintage Estate. Into my goblet.

A - Ow crap! Such an explosion of carbonation! I wasn't even able to get it all in the glass before it runith over! Color is a hazy oak brown with a ruby tint. The massive 2 inches of head have an opaque brown color almost brown.
S - Smells of tart cherries, mild oak, and big fruity yeasts. Maybe some plum or raisin its hard to tell since its mostly tart not sweet.
T - Big sour tart that quickly gets pulled to a Belgium yeast that is kind of sweet but no real candied sugar flavor. Finish has mild hops and bread but I am not getting much spice that others noted. Pity.
M - For such a massive ABV it drinks more medium to heavy body but still a sipper for sure.

Overall to me this is a very drinkable Belgium ale. Big ABV, light yeast thats not sure dry, and it has some fruity flavors mostly sour funk. Worth trying for 3 bucks.
