How have I not reviewed this before? I've had this on draft in my house! Shame on me...
Served in a tall, slender pint glass at Michael Jordan's in Chicago. Poured with a short head (as expected for a bar) over a mostly opaque deep orange-to-amber body. Great lacing.
Aromas are sweet, fruity, and very appealing. Lots of cherry, and a woft of alcohol. Sweet bready, yeasty quality as it warms.
Incredibly smooth on the palate. This is a creamy Dubbel. Flavors are dominated by sweet cherry and a kiss of lime. Some tangy tree fruits in the finish. There is a definite cordial quality left on the breath in the aftertaste.
Terrific beer that I really need to stop overlooking in the beer store just because "I've had it before"
Serving type: on-tap

Had this beer in a corked bottle. 7/23/14.
Pours a really nice dark maroon color that won't give away the way it tastes right away. Head dissipates in a nice frothy fashion.
The nose is spicy and malty, you can definitely trace it back to the licorice, coriander, orange peel, and yeast.
The taste consists of sweet malt then flavors of slight licorice, coriander, orange peel, spice, and yeast. The more you sip, the better it gets as your mouth gets used to the very slight metallic plum taste. Blends together perfectly.
Medium bodied, even though the look doesn't give that away, nice dry finish. Alcohol is hidden very well.
This beer is a very good example of the style, first Ommegang brew I've ever had. Very refreshing mouthfeel and a lot of underlying fruit characteristics that point to fig/plum and licorice. The orange peel and coriander hints balance it quite nicely.
Believe it or not this brew pairs perfectly with French Toast flavored Goldfish. Then again, that could just be the end of the beer getting to me.
