sweet cola like aroma,kind of like a Dr Pepper..nice reddish brown color but completely headless after pour..tastes sweet cherries honey other malts kind of like a barleywine,a little spiciness from the yeast and a slight hop tingle are also present but not much..very heavy feeling with almost total lack of carbonation overall Im glad I tried it about what I expected might even buy it again I love cherries after all good and interesting,not great

Ughsmash (7327) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 13, 2015
750mL bottle. Poured dark amber with a nice, creamy beige head. The aroma picked up dark biscuity malts, raisins, and overripe banana with accents of cherry dust and peppery yeast.. warm on the back of the nose. The flavor found biscuity malts, raisins, molasses, and a little brown sugar at the core, with prickly carbonation, cherry dust, black pepper, and rye around.. banana and chewy dark biscuits plus light tart cherry on the finish. Heavy-bodied with a bit too much carbonation on the palate.. OK feel and flow.

Brownish pour, tan head. Fruity, figs, dates, cherry, caramel, spice cake, fruit cake, toasted bread. Nice beer.

TheHopster (899) - Netcong, New Jersey, USA - APR 25, 2015
(cork & cage bottle) Aroma of boozy cherry. Deep cherry complexion with lasting thick head. The flavor is pretty boozy with somewhat bitter cherry. Not much Belgian yeast or malts noted. Not the best from this brewer.

Aroma of cherry skins and rasin and figs. Taste is slight sweet and a little cloudy. Slight sweet finish but lots of flavor and nice overall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

nearbeer (4058) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 14, 2015
750 ml. Slightly cloudy copper-brown with a lasting film of cream. Aroma is spicy toffee, raisin bread and some dry cocoa. Tastes of raisin toffee, clove-spiced dark bread, more dark grape than cherry, and some faint touches of cocoa and char. Medium body is smooth with light-medium carbonation and has a nice balance. Extremely light touch with the cherry, but that’s OK by me. Still a nice take on a higher abv dubbel.

rodenbach99 (3492) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 28, 2015
Bouteille de 750ml. Une robe rouge orangée très foncée. Une mousse beige épaisse mais qui disparait rapidement, dommage. Un nez épicé de levure belge avec des notes légères de cerises. Une bouche qui rapelle la Maudite avec des épices, phenols belges et des cerises en final. Agréable.

chucklemation (696) - Pontiac, Michigan, USA - MAR 24, 2015
Pours a dark brown with a foamy off-white head. Aroma is Belgian yeast and some fruit. Flavor is slightly tart cherry and sweet Belgian yeast. The cherries are barely prominent, but that’s probably a good thing. Overall pretty good.

Too rich for the taste/aroma. I understand the high ABV brews...but want cleaner flavors, less body, with my brews.

60minuteman (1004) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 12, 2015
Appearing grapefruit red, off white lace. Smell is chocolate, toffee, cola cherry, banana. Taste is bitter and sour cherry. Very astringent, fruity sweet and tart/earthy. Lots of cherries. Sweetness notes are paired well with the high alcohol content.
