Good beige head with light lace. A cross between a dark amber and brown ale in color.
First impression, strong vanilla aromas. The cherry is subtle, but present, in this largely malt smelling ale.
Very strong alcohol oiliness in the taste. The malt appears in the form of mildly sweet caramel. Although a lambic was introduced to this beer, there is none of the sourness associated with that style. Moderate body for this style (which is to say that it is very, very rich) and the carbonation is relatively low.
I’m not typically a fan of this style, but this was a treat--certainly a well made Belgian style ale.

Smells sweet, yeasty, strong and some slight cherry. Malty aroma as well. Taste is yeasty, sweet, malty and dark fruit. Nice head retention but light carbonation. Doesn’t taste too strong. Very good quad. Very smooth and lots of complex flavors. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: JAN 25, 2014 Pours a very pretty amber, still bubbling with a light tan head. Malted, mildly cherry cola aroma. Far too carbonated that covers the strong alcohol but also the flavours. Nice sweet flavour, caramels and malts from what I could taste with the medium-light body.
