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

A: Reddish brown clear pour into tulip glass produces two fingers of creamy khaki head with great retention and moderate clingy lacing.
S: Smells of dark fruits, caramel, and bready malt
T: Flavors of figs, cherries and bready malt all emerge as it warms a bit. Sweet at first with spicy middle and wraps up with ethanol warmth and slight bitter end.
M: Medium bodied and creamy with good carbonation.
O: Enjoyable beer that I would definitely have again.

Poured into a flute.

Appearance: Pours a semi-clear amber with a 3/4 tan head. Head is exceptionally thick compared to most beers settles after a few minutes but be careful when pouring.

Smell: If I were to say this smells like anything, I would say maybe wine...if there was a thing maybe roasted fruits.

Taste: Incredible, brown sugar meets incredible dark berries. It's not really a sweet beer but seriously there is something of butter scotch going on with this baby...it would remind you of a bubbly red wine.

Mouth: Not too carbonated...you're looking at one of the best. Goes down easy for most real beer drinkers but flavor is just wow.

Overall: I have fallen in love with Ommegang Abbey Ale and honestly can only think of one other dubbel which might have a slight edge. Regardless Ommegang Abbey Ale is in a class o it's own...take it for what it is but don;t take it for granted.
