Poured from tap into a tulip glass at the Indeed tap room over the winter season.

Appearance: Pours a deep opaque ruby color with a nice one finger tan foamy head. Leaves nice sticky lacing as it fades. Looks great in the tulip glass.

Smell: A great mix of funky yeast, sweet cherries and a whiff of alcohol. Smells very much like a good Belgian ale.

Taste: Wow. Delicious flavors of a good Belgian dark strong ale with the added bonus of cherries to add a slight bittersweet note. The alcohol was definitely present, but not at all overwhelming. I LOVED the flavors of this one!

Mouth Feel: Slick and medium bodied with a good low carbonation. Finished slick and slightly tart on the tongue.

Overall: I love good Belgian stron ales, and this was no exception to that rule. A really well done Belgian style that wasn't overly sweet or fruity like a lambic, but that had all the right flavors in all the right places. Please bring this one back next winter, Indeed!

Port wine barrel aged version, which was released on tap in 2015. Almost certainly all the 2015 ratings are for that version.
