Oh, just wow. Cloudy dark amber pour under a nice thick tan head. Sticky sweet palate, but just delicious. Cherries are in there, but nice and subtle. Alcohol warmth shows up, but not in the taste. Worth every ounce of its reputation.

Pours a dark, hazy brownish-red with a very foamy off-white head. Aroma is dark fruit and flavor is the same, with some alcohol taste to it. Sweet, with a full body. Very good.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
From the bomber bottle, pours a very dark deep scarlet red with a thick bubbly off white head. I can smell the alcohol from arm’s length. Perhaps that’s just a Vietnam flashback to drinking way too much of this on weekends in grad school. Upon further reflection, while there is an aroma of alcohol, there are also notes of sour apples, dark malts, very fruity. Thick, the alcohol, while present, is largely masked by fruits and malts. Wish I could be a little more descriptive, but it went down to quick. Really good beer.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured a dark amber to brown colour with a 1/2 inch cream coloured head. Aroma is sweet with notes of dark fruit (plums, raisins,and cherries), clove, and roasted malt. Flavor is sweet still with strong presence of cherries among the belgian malts. Medium bodied with carbonation and a light alcohol finish. Well done.
