3.9/5  rDev -6.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A clear, mahogany-colored beer with a thick, tawny head. Aroma of yeast, toast, spices. Taste has some licorice, spice, and sour fruits. Moderate alcohol warmth. Finishes dry and slightly winy. Pretty high carbonation; the fizziness almost gets in the way.

Ommegang Abbey is a great beer for sure. But, I admit I don't quite understand all the "A+" grades.

4.44/5  rDev +6.7%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Gorgeous, deep mahogany color with cherry hues when held to light. Pours a mountainous, foamy head that never lets up. Leaves behind patchy chunks of lacing.

Wonderful dark fruit aroma of figs and dates along with some burnt sugar. Solid, clove-like yeast character.

Smooth and sweet flavors of dark fruits and candy sugar. Hint of toasted almonds. Love the fresh, live yeast quality. Touch of herbal, spicy hop, just enough to balance. I can detect a hint of nutmeg in the finish along with lingering clove.

Medium to full bodied. High carbonation works well with the style. Pleasant grainy, yeasty texture.

Overall, a fantastic dubbel style ale. Complex and well balanced. Everything I could ask for.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Bottle poured into a pilsner glass

Pours a dark copper orange brown in color . Three finger white foam settles into a white bubble layer with good lacings.

Aroma is malty, deep rich plums, spices , licorice, orange and coriander

Taste of sweet malt , plums, spices, licorice, coriander, orange peel and alcohol

Medium and you can detect the alcohol in here.

Great beer. I'll definitely repeat and recommend you give it a try.
