The beer is a very reddish brown with an almost pinkish head. Appropriately named.
Caramel, vanilla, cinnamon and a bit of apple make up the aroma. The aroma is exactly what the beer advertises itself to be.
This flavor is all over the place. Plenty of earthy hops to start but it's quickly overpowered by cinnamon and incredibly boozy cherries. The aftertaste is still full of alcohol and cherries, along with figs and an earthy hop dryness. Again, this is what the beer advertises itself to be, but the flavors don't seem to blend as well as they could and seem to be battling each other for dominance.
This is worth drinking once or twice but it tastes like some of the fruit needs to be tamed down a bit. I think I'll let a can or two age a few months and give it another try.

been waiting a while to try this one, 21st did not can this one last year or if they did none ever made it to MN.
Pours very dark brown with a half inch off white head that dissipates rather quick, doesn't look like there's a ton of carbonation to it, hopefully it stays true to that in the mouthfeel for my sake. Smells very fruity, tons of bananas on the nose! Smells delish, also some ripe dark fruits - plums and grapes, smell kind of jammy, some slight malty breadiness as well.
Taste is great! All of what you pick up in the aroma translates to the flavors, the banana does not come through nearly as much in the flavor as the nose but still noticeable, great example of a Belgian dark, 21st does it again! I'll be buying a 4 pack of this guys for sure!
