UPDATED: AUG 19, 2011 Bottle. Just another banana special that left me feeling like it was time to mosey on home..... OK, second attempt at this. Bottle courtesy of Randall and shared at the District. There is quite a bit of smoke and some sweet cherry flavors, but still a below average attempt from LB.....

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Based on the comments of several haters, I expected this one to be a train wreck. Not so at all. Pours a dark ruddy brown color with a large lasting tan head. Roasty and dark chocolatey aroma with slight brett a little fruitiness. Flavor is almost like a slightly tart cherry stout. Very roasty with charcoal and bitter dark chocolate, along with Belgian notes and brett. Medium-light body with high carbonation from the wild yeast. Surprisingly solid stuff. Would drink this again, no question.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. [thank you, after4ever]
Pours deep chestnut with slight red edges. Big, creamy, beige head. Great lacings. Flavour has lots of nice cherries, deep dark chocolate, light fruity tartness, some spicy liqourice. Medium carbonation, great creamy mouthfeel. Rather dry in the finish. Flavour is lovely tart, plums, lots of chocolate, light liqourice, cherries with no marzipan. Some caramel, cocoa, coconut, oak and a sherry feel throughout. Long, lingering dryness. Very elegant. Like a blend of a great porter/dubbel and a sour cherry ale. Yum!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750, corked and baled. Pours nearly black with a dense and pillowy dark tan head. Big dark sugar and cherry nose, lots of cola and cola nut shot through. Creamy medium body, a bit sticky, plenty of lively carb. Cola, cola nut, burnt sugar, cherries, and black bread on the mid palate. Long sticky sweet finish. Interesting.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Been sitting on this one for a bit. Popped it open and wondered to my self why I had not drank it before now.
A: Pours a nice deep brown with evil shades of red showing through. The head is nice and tall, tan in color with a tint of red in it is well. Very nice retention and nice Belgian lace all the way down the glass.
S: Much much cherry in the aroma. Mostly tart with hints of candy sweetness beneath. Mild chocolate notes and a dash of roast.
T: Nice tart cherry juice up front. Not puckering tart, just a mild tartness. Hints of dark fruits and chocolate. Simple yet tasty.
M: Medium in body, rather lively carbonation. Zippy on the back end.
D: Good, nice light refreshing brew with just enough tartness to provide a nice lingering fruity tartness.

Bottled. Big a fruity, with a complex yeasty nose. Notes of pear, banana, plum. Flavor is smooth as silk, with cherry and vanilla complexity. Easy drinking, with mild carbonation and a perfect body. Really opens up as it warms. A lovely Belgian ale.
