4.53/5 rDev +9.4%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
1/6 barrel keg downstairs in my kegerator poured into my Ommegang snifter glass. I've had this beer numerous times, and I know I like it a lot, but I've never gone through the formal "review process" with it, so I'm excited to see how this goes.
A: Pours a beautiful hazy reddish-brown with a thick 2 finger head on top. The bubbly head looks like pancake batter in the middle. Perfect.
The lacing clings to the glass with each sip I take.
S: Yeasty smells of dark fruits and candied sugars are of near-ideal amplitude here.
T: Sweet creamy flavors of candied sugars, figs, and prunes balance out subtly and perfectly. This beer starts warm with the candied sugars before the dark fruits rush in to say hello. It finishes with a nice balance of yeasty-flavors and a nice touch of sweet cherry syrupy flavors.
M: Light, creamy, and bubbly initially, but this beer finishes dry, with the sugars and the cherry syrup coating the tongue nicely.
D: High. Thoroughly enjoy this beer, and would gladly quaff it all evening long.
Serving type: on-tap

Pours a hazy, deep amber with a frothy tan head that leaves little chunks of lacing.
Smells of dark fruits with some spice as well.
Tastes of the dark fruits with some bready malt and spice. Notes of chocolate, caramel, and toasted bread lead off. This leads into figs, raisins, and a hint of cherries. Not particularly sweet. Some booze adds to the fruits and gives a little bit of a rum cake feel to it. Herbal and spice notes round out the finish along with a touch of alcohol warmth.
Mouthfeel is full with a smooth amount of carbonation.
Overall, this is a good example of the style, but falls just short of the other classics of the style.
