Pours a deep hazy mahogany medicinal and phenolic on the nose with a touch of cherries. Underneath these scents is a touch of Belgian candies. Big foamy off white head. Very active.

Lacing is pretty superb.

More carbonation then expected. Huge full body. Some Belgian dark fruits dominate the middle of the pallet. Finishes with a big medicinal boozed presence. Some alcohol warmth on the swallow. A lot of dry malt on the tip of the tongue which gets cut off by the big herbal Belgian presence. Some cherry flavor is noticeable.

Alcohol presence is more pronounced as the beer warms as well as the spice.

Unfortunately im not finding anything too special about these beer. Very medicinal and the minor cherry addition doesn't do much for it. There's also a bit of cloying sweetness and spiciness after a while. tolerable, but its there. drinkable but id rather have something else.
