A - Dark Cherry, amber, just a slight twinge of haze. This brew pours with a thick 3 finger fluffy clay colored head.
S - Malty, Spicy, Sweet, cloves, honey, alcohol, dried fruits, light molasses.
T - Heavenly. Sweet spice, caramel notes, dried fruits, fig or prune like, light alcohol....freaking amazing.
M - Quite carbonated, mouth coating but not thick, a but prickly and a dryish finish just make me want to keep drinking!
D- Absolutely! I could drink this all day, all night, pretty much constantly. Great balance and loads of flavor make this a beer to come back to over and over.
This beer is by far one of my favorites. There are loads of flavors to be explored in this brew. It seems like I find something new every time I revisit this classic, stand-beside brew. Worth the 50 something a case. Also, when set down for a year of so, it becomes quite divine and the layers of flavor really develop and the alcohol taste take a backseat. Do yourself a favor and go pick some up!

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.
