Served in a tulip glass
A - Dark Chocolate w/ slight amber appearance when help up to light.
S - Banana, Clove, Bread, Alcohol
T - Banana bread, nutty
M - smooth, foamy, creamy
O - Great dubbel, strong with great flavor and feeling good
I like this offering but not the best Ommegang has to offer and personally would choose Allagash's Dubbel or a true Belgian or from Ommegang: Hennepin or Rare Vos. Personal fav = Rare Vos !

1 Pt 9.4 oz bottle to Notorious BIG pint glass
A- Pours a medium red/brown body with a giant tan head. Head quickly settles to a thin foam cap
S- Dark fruits, sweet malts, and a bit of hops hit the nose all at once. Smells pretty good, but nothing outstanding.
T- Right along the same lines as the smell but intensified. I'm getting a bit of chocolate and spicy yeast here as well.
M- This beer is firing on all cylinders here. Smooth, thick, and biting all at once.
O- Another great Ommegang offering. Right up there behind Three Philosophers for me.

This beer was fantastic! It was a substitution as I was really looking for a Trippel that evening and the liquor store didn't have any in-stock.
Picked up the big bottle for a reasonable $7? $8? something like that and was just blown away by the depth and richness of this brew. Creamy, carmely (I know that's not a word but it should be) with a hint of some kind of chocolate or coffee or something... just incredible.
I HIGHLY recommend this beer to anyone who enjoys a malty flavored brew.

Appearance: Hazy brown with some dark amber - pours with a big, rocky beige head, fades to a little cap, leaves some nice streaks of lacing
Smell: Dark and spicy - Ommegang's generally pleasant Belgian yeast strain, lightly spicy, some faint banana esters, and some clove - cooked, caramelized malts - some dark fruits like figs and raisins - some apple, some candi sugar, and some alcohol
Taste: A solid blend of dark fruits and malts - dark fruits like figs, raisins, prunes are quite prominent - spicy yeast, with some clove and light phenols - cooked, caramelized malts, with some caramel sweetness and an overall spice cake-like flavor - alcohol is pretty obvious
Mouthfeel: Nearly full bodied, creamy, nicely carbonated, with some alcohol heat
Overall: Exceeds expectations
I drank this a few years ago and was memorably not impressed. I guess I have gained an appreciation for Ommegang in general, for I now think this is pretty good. It's not as "Belgian" as some examples of this style, but sometimes this is a good thing. This is pretty clean and drinkable, although it is a bit boozy.
