A - Pours a fairly hazy deep red color with a touch of brown mixed in, with a finger of off-white head. The head fades fairly quickly down to a ring around the glass leaving behind some lacing.
S - Aroma is full of sweet and slightly tart cherries. There is also some yeast smell and a touch of spices. Really pungent.
T - Starts off with some sweet candied cherry flavor and some nice yeast flavor. Little bit of holiday spices in the background (little bit of clove). Also a bit of honey sweetness. Through the middle a bit of tartness comes out alongside some Belgian yeast flavor. The finish has some lingering sweet cherry flavor alongside some caramel and some booze flavor that lingers very nicely.
M - Medium-full bodied with moderate lively carbonation. A touch syrupy and oily, but still really nice and smooth. The booze finish here is really nice.
D - For an 11% abv beer, this stays remarkably drinkable. The flavors are really nice and balanced and work very well together. The sweet cherry flavor is really excellent.
