A - a deep purple brown, half finger of head dissipated to some random lacing
S - big in plumb and cherry aromas with some phenolic and licorice
T - very sweet and dark maltiness, fruity dark cherry, phenolic, and a hint of hoppiness with some alcohol heat
M - creamy smooth start with a mild alcohol tingle, rich syrupy sweet finish
O - a silky smooth big belgian, that cherry accent adds an extra kick of sweetness that makes this almost wine like in some ways but still all brew, so glad we have a few from this brewer in town now

A - Serving in a snifter gave a half finger head which rapidy dissipates. It was tobacco colored with some deep reds showing in the light.

S - Sweet, molasses, dark fruit maybe plums or cherry

T - malt, dark fruit, light alcohol, molasses

M - moderate carbonation with a full but well balanced character

O - This beer really grew on me as I got through it. I'll definitely be drinking this again with some holiday meals.
