Pours a brown body with minimal head and lacing. Aroma is chocolatey with coffee/roasted malts and a bit of dark/black cherry and possible other dark fruits. Medium bodied, smooth, slick, it seems like chocolate covered cherries mixed with touch of coffee and I get a not so quite sweet and sour vibe but there seems to be a dry, tart edge at times in this beer. Finished easy and sweet with very little hops and the eight percent alcohol well hidden, and I also get touches of caramel/toffee sweetness and floral spice at times. I'm not sure what style this beer is as it is different and my review doesn't really do it justice. One of those beer that you'll really like or really not want to have again.

Kept this one cold for the past few years, bottled in 2012. Poured into an Allagash chalice. Dark brown with royal purple highlights. Tan, two finger head. Very aromatic smell; smells like a box of chocolates when you first open it. Very enticing.
Cherry cordial flavors all the way; based on the description here, it seem like that was the goal and this ale delivers. Interesting layers of cocoa and strong tea. A woodsy, nutty note lingers underneath the esters. Finishes a bit sweet and creamy, but has a semi-dry quality to it. Medium-full bodied.
Really interesting take on the dubbel style. Enjoyable and unique, and perfect as a dessert beer. I can see having this with good french vanilla ice cream. Another quality brew from DFH.

Poured from a 750ml into a shaker pint, the beer is a very dark, almost opaque, mud-brown coloring with a foamy, light tan head on the pour that quickly settles into a tight surface coat. Aromas of nut sweetness, creamy highlights, mocha, raw honey, and roasted highlights. Smells delicious. Flavors are extremely rich and sweet forward, with a heavy nut sweetness, rich fig and date notes, a biscuit and bread backbone, and some subtle spicing throughout. Notes of raw honey, rich caramel, and cinnamon seem to be in there, too. Looking at the label, I don't know what half that shit is, but this is what I'm tasting, and it's pretty damn good. Rich, smooth, robust body, with a heavy, richly sweet, tangy aftertaste. The finish is also on the sweet side, with a decent linger. This beer is heavy, but it is tasty. Really unique flavor profiles, too.
