On tap at the Avenue Pub in New Orleans. Served in an Ommegang pint glass
Appearance: amber color with a creamy, one finger head that lingers.
Smell: malt, toffee, caramel
Taste: Malty, lemony, yeasty, with raisins, spices, and a cherry finish. The dark fruits really dominate.
Mouthfeel: medium with chewy carbonation
Overall: Been wanting to try this since it came to Louisiana. Love it. Complex and creamy. A very fruity/malty hybrid that warms the soul. Ommegang does Belgian right.
Serving type: on-tap

Notes from after the fact. I just plain didn't jive with this beer. The licorice ruined it for me. This beer came off as tasting like root vegetables with potato and turnip. The sweetness of the chocolate malt flavor and the twang of the licorice with vegetable notes just didn't go together. Licorice and anise spice lingered long after. There were other redeeming qualities like a great body and a nice porter-like woodiness that I appreciated, but I couldn't get past the bad parts. And I'm even a fan of licorice an anise, just not in my beer apparently.
