look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: Deer skin brown, dark brown and cloudy with a deer hide colour when held to the light, 4 fingers of beige head leaving an amazing lacing. Hard to see any carbonation due to the darkness, but looks like shimmering lake waters when held to the light. Sexy lacing.

S: Deep dark cherries covered in milk chocolate, raisins, floral like a perfume of aromatic fruit blossoms. Light coke like scents, reminiscent of Achel Brune.

T: Dark fruits like dates, figs, raisins, light sweetness and a good hit of alcohol on the tongue. The alcohol almost takes over which really surprises me. A good burn with it as well. Light cherry and floral notes come in but are faint.

M: Medium thick body with light carbonation.

O: An excellent brew. Light on sweetness unlike Achel Brune, high in alcohol, yet a lot of the pleasant tastes of dark fruits. A huge bottle which I think is unnecessary, wish it came in a smaller portion. Bought in Lakeland, FL, drank in Pensacola, FL, July 30th, 2014.

With out a doubt one of the finest beers I have ever had. This beer looks great and smells sweet and rich of dark fruits. The taste is much the same sweet with dark fruits and dark sugars. The feel is smooth and full. All in all a hell of a beer. Get your hands on it if you can.
