4.44/5 rDev +6.7%
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.

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.

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.
