Glass: Sierra Nevada XXX snifter
Type: 12fl oz can
Poured softly, producing a 1.5-finger head, reduces to a thin film, lacing is better-than-average, color is crimson-brown.
Aroma is quite complex, beginning with heavy bready malts, moving into cinnamon and nutmeg. Until this beer warms up, I can't sense anything else.
Taste is extremely bready, moderate levels of cinnamon, brown sugar, medicinal black cherries. When warmed, the black cherries match up well with the now-apparent figs. Belgian yeast flavor is subtle but makes a break backbone. Cherry attaches to the palate with some caramel and slight bitterness. Carbonation is moderate and delightful. Certainly a low-heat sipper, which is actually best between 45-50ºF. The cherries lower the drinkability. Perhaps this would be tasty with dessert.

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!
