3.68/5  rDev -4.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

330ml bottle

Pours with a dark orangy body, few ruby highlights. Slightly cloudy with a tight off white head with good retention

Smell, thick syrupy alcohol soaked fruit, almonds and marzipan, some floral fragrant esters too. Brown bread, swirlled around in my tulip glass brings out some sticky vanilla dairy ice cream and a light note of star anise

Taste, crisp bready sweet initial flavour, tight syrupy alcoholic mouthfeel. Sweet peaches and watermelon, belgian candied sugar, a few light phenolic notes too. Dry bitterness on the finish, almost like a hint of quinine. I don't know what the hop bill was for this but if the bitterness is hops its not particularly well done, I'm a huge fan of bitter beer with huge hop profiles but this just tastes a litte odd

Quite a light belgian dark ale in flavour and colour but it packs a huge alcoholic punch in the face with a lingering alcoholic note on the finish along with some rather out of character bitterness

Purchased at the LCBO $3.30 0ml bottle. Served at 6deg C in a tulip glass

A- Very good. Opens well, pours a nice head that dissipates to a film within a minute Dark amber color

S- Roasted malt and caramel. Super high alcohol scent

T- Hot even though its' only 8.5%. Caramel galore. Sweet. Carbonated well.

M- Very good. Smooth and dry

O- Very good. Would like to see how this one mellows with age.

Food Pairing

This nice brown goes well with... Pizza

Enjoy

Bottle given to me by joefuzz, thanks joe! Enjoyed from a 3 philosophers tulip.

Brew pours a light copper that settles as a deep mahogany in the glass and has a thin bubbly yet creamy head. Lots of visible carbonation.

Nose is rounded sour cherry. Rich and lush and not pungent. Very candy like and inviting.

Belgian dark ale with a cherry twist. Candy fruitiness. Carbonation is fizzy and prickly. I would expect it to be a bit more creamy.

Overall a nice drink nothing mind blowing but nice cherry flavors and held age nicely since i have had this one for a while now,
