Really sweet cherry taste but still a deep complex beer. Iím quite a fan of Belgian strong fruity beers like the red Kasteel and this one is a really interesting take on the style. Would recommend it !

It poured a rusty amber color with a nice thick beige head. The aroma was sweet and bready with some peppers and spices. The taste was alcoholic, spicy and peppery with a sweet, bready maltiness throughout. It had a medium body with a good deal of carbonation. Enjoyable.

Bottle 330 ml at home, poured into a tulip glass. ABV 12%
Deep amber brown colour on the body, with lots of slow and continuous activity in it. Small off-white head on top, with very good retention, leaving light lacing around the glass and thick foam islands on the beerís surface.
Aroma of dark fruits, caramel, malts, light alcohol after every swirl of the glass.
Taste is sweet with plenty of dark fruits, caramel, light toffee, lots of alcohol that also offers a light burn on the tongue and throat, light hops on the finish, ripe pears.
Medium thin body, good carbonation. Sticky palate.
Overall tasty beer, in spite of its high alcohol drinks very good.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled. I bought this beer today due to Christmas holidays at a beer specialty store here in Bratislava. One word: colossal! Malty, not too much sweet with a minor bitter finish. The abv is there but only marginal which is surprising due to its 12%. A warming alcohol feeling in the finish.
