4.13/5 rDev -0.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
A- 4.5 Very pretty deep red/mahogany color that sits beneath a creamy tan head. The head is made up of very fine bubbles and is about a 1/4" thick. A swirl around the tulip leads to very smooth, moderately sticky lacing and a bubbly dance beneath the cap.
S- 4.5 This has a great aroma made up of figs and dark fruit in general. I get a bit of raisin. There's a little spice here as well, though nothing individually distinguishable. It is almost like a holiday bread. The Belgian yeast is present but mild. There's the slightest hint of booze.
T- 4 The taste isn't as complex and developed as I found the aroma, but it is quite good nonetheless. It is heavy in the dark fruit realm initially, and then that yeasty spiciness makes its appearance to finish. The hint of booze I smelled isn't as pronounced in the taste, but there's just enough that I know it is there.
M- 4 A smidge over medium in body. The carbonation is a tad high. Otherwise, it is pretty smooth and not really heavy for the high ABV.
D- 4 This is a fine ale, and I'm hardly surprised given the brewery. Ommegang always seems to be solid. This is a good one if you're a fan of the style for sure. It packs a great punch of aroma and flavor and isn't all that heavy. At its ABV it will get you where you need to be, so you won't need a whole lot! It's nice to have this brew readily available to fall back on occasion.
