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.
