Super sweet cherry and chocolate taste. Not my style but a ton of juice behind it with 11% plus ABV

Goes down dangerously easily for an 11% beer, as I've heard. Delicious flavor.

Great holiday beer, a little bitter but if left to age it is. Real treat... Ill be enjoying a 2 year old mad elf tonight

Was not a fan of the cherry/honey flavor. It does mask the high alcohol content of the beer well though.

Overwhelming alcohol out of the gate. Hard to get past it. Maybe I got a dud? It happens

Doesn't taste like 11% not hoppy nice overtones of leather and dark fruit

The Belgian strong ale classification is evident, especially the strong part - but the attempt at cherry flavor and super high ABV make it taste a medicinal and hard to drink. Didn't even finish my 4 oz taster glass.

Tastes like medicine to me.

Such a yummy holiday beer! Notes of cherry, sweet but not overpowering with a tiny touch of bitterness to balance it at the end.
