Poured from a 750 ml "brewed and bottled in Belgium for Brewery Ommegang" bottle with the "Brewery Ommegang" neck label into an Ommegang chalice.
A--Pours about a two finger head that's cola in color if not body (much more foamy than fizzy) that holds on amid being pockmarked with tons of tiny bubbles. Very busy head that leaves excellent lacing in the chalice. Body is the color of a freshly oiled saddle in the sun. Beautiful looking glass of brew.
S--Oh man--Deep bing cherry on the nose with some overripe plum skins mixed in and some faint molasses, pumpernickelish undertones. Plenty inviting to sip.
T--Raisins, more old plum skins, and plenty of malty goodness up front. The malt lurks throughout the taste, so that even the bitter and metallic on the back end hint at malty. Still, the end of the taste is dry enough to make you want more, and more, and more of this complex taste spectrum. Lots going on here.
M--Definitely full, and only gets fuller as it warms, feeling syrupy without being cloying as you approach room temp. Viscosity is a perfect accompaniment for the dry crackling pastime of watching leaves fall.
D--Probably not something I'm going to drink a ton of in one sitting, but that's not the point. A single bomber poured slow and savored is better than even a pot of tea for these cooling temperatures and the color show they bring to the northeast. So damn satisfying!
