Pours a murky dark brown with a 3-4 finger head that lingers. Raisin cherry. Mildly sweet and tart, but finishes bitter. Medium body. Moderately fizzy. Medium finish. A touch boozy but moderately drinkable. I like it.

kbudd19 (930) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 5, 2016
Bottle. A least a few years old. Appearance is dark black with dense white head. Good lacing and retention. Aroma is anise, some light sourness, mixed in with brown sugar and clove. Taste is stoned fruit, clove, mixed in with a hint of tartness. Really nice beer, had this fresh once and remember it tasting a lot stronger. Tasting really great right now though.

Turboninja (342) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 23, 2015
Tap@Rattle’n’Hum, NYC, New York. Medium aroma with plum and bourbon. Amber color with minimal white head and hazy liquid. Strong taste of cherry, plum and bourbon. Alcohol comes trough clearly. Balanced with medium taste spectrum and long cherry aftertaste. Strong/medium body with low/medium carbonation. Overall, superbly stylish and bold, still balanced product. Could have more aroma.

tekstr1der (287) - New Hampshire, USA - DEC 15, 2015
As with others from this brewery it has the same slight sourness to the aroma that I don’t like. Otherwise, this pours a nice dark brown with big, lasting, dense tan head. Aroma has some malt and sour fruit. Flavor is quite different thankfully. Nice balance of malty sweetness and ripe dark fruit. A little light body, like their other similar offerings.

kingaugusta (156) - Georgia, USA - DEC 5, 2015
Pours dark red brown with a big light brown head. Nose is strong and sweet with cherry, cake, and a touch of sour. Flavor is similarly potent and malt driven. High carbonation and alcohol presence. Very good.

wombat23 (129) - Texas, USA - NOV 17, 2015
Shared 750 ml. bottle. Dark brown with creamy tan head. Nice lacing which clings to the glass and slides downward. Aroma is slightly vinous, malt, yeast, hints of cherry. Taste similar to aroma. Marginally sweet. Highly carbonated, creamy, and smooth. A soothing warmth in the finish.

darbeer75 (114) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - NOV 17, 2015
Aroma: can smell alcohol with some fruity and malty undertones; otherwise, not very fragrant; Appearance: almost black with tan head that quickly dissipates; Taste: too wheaty/yeasty for my taste; some complexity but a bit disappointing; Palate: thick, creamy and satisfying; Overall: just can’t go over a 12 for a yeasty beer.

Percy0103 (358) - MEXICO - NOV 15, 2015
Bottle, 750ml. A dark beer with a red hue and a small brown head. Sour aroma with citrics and belgian yeast. Taste is bittersweet with a mild alcoholic finish. Faint carbonation and some astringency. Medium bodied with a sweet aftertaste typical of a Quadrupel.

Bottle, 75cl. Opaque dark ruby with a frothy brown head. Wheaty, sour aroma, with hints of clove, spices, green apples. Moderate to fizzy carbonation. Sweet with low bitterness. Fruity, earthy character, with a fiery, but controlled alcohol finish. Very nice.
