Slightly overripe fruit with a dash of spice on the nose over a suggestion of fruit cake.
Pours brilliant deep dark brown with a dense 3" foamy light tan head.
Fruit cake, spicy palate with toffee and caramel notes, prune, dried fig and a dash of anise lead the palate to pleasant bitter hop finish.
Very rich and creamy with a medium full body and above average effervescence.

Muddy dark chocolate brown with a healthy dose of creamy burnt latte head that leaves thick drapes of carbonation across the glass.

Caramel malts, cherry bark, molasses, almond, some milk chocolate, brown sugar, really damn smooth given the ABV.

Much better than the few reviews I've seen have indicated. The cherry and raspberry flavors are pushing tartness on the tongue... some cinnamon, more brown sugar, it finishes long and truly Belgian. Fruity yeast and sweet dark malts make for a wonderful aftertaste. No real discernible alcohol character.

Tasty.

Black currant flavors were extremely sour. This is the second time that I've had this beer and both taste like they could be infected but I have been assured by each sender that they were not as they drank bottle from the same purchase.
