A: Pours a dark amber with a decent head that sticks around with a nice fizzy carbonation along the sides of the glass and the top of the beer. Pretty.
S: Smells of raisins, plums, brandy. Sweet and spicy with the sting of alcohol on the nose. I love it. Smells like a dark, fruity Jamaican Christmas cake I love, rich with rum and molasses.
T: Just like it smells. Rich, sweet, spicy. Fruit soaked in rum and brandy.
M: Nice. Dry and fizzy. Nice tingle of carbonation to balance the richness and the sweetness. Nicely done.
D: A sipper, but goes down nice and smooth. You have to remind yourself not to guzzle while you drink it.

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.
