This brew pours almost a pure ruby-red with a two finger off white head. There is moderate lacing.
The smell is dank, musty, sweet, full of sugar. Lots of rich, sweet malts and caramel. Maybe cherries.
The taste is full of sweet malts, sugar, fruit, caramel and spices. (I don't know which spices). The taste is rich and full but it looses a few points for the booze coming through and the excessive sweetness.
The mouthfeel is tangy and creamy. Somewhat full and chewy.
Overall this is a good brew if you like sweet beers. I like it but don't love it. If the sweetness was tamped down a bit and the booze was better concealed this would be better overall.

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.
