3.75/5 rDev -9.4%
Poured into snifter from bomber
A-dark amber with reddish hue. big off white head thick clinging lacing (4.0)
S-dark sugars, molasses, raisins, (3.75)
T-sweet and boozy. flavors of molasses, dark cherries, figs, raisins, and some burning booze (3.75)
M-some carbonation, full bodied, (3.75)
O-not one of my preferred styles as it is a bit too sweet for me with a boozy punch. The sweetness lingers which makes it less drinkable for my tastes. (3.75)

4.27/5 rDev +3.1%
First rating under the new system, so let's try this out...
This beer pours a nice dark brown. It has a strong presence and a nice full body. Its flavours are of molasses and toffee, but it also carries a strong sweet flavor like a Belgian. It is full bodied but well rounded and is easy to drink considering its strength. Overall it is another strong offering from Ommegang, but not my favorite.

4.5/5 rDev +8.7%
Dark copper in color with two fingers of thick head. Lace in the glass is whispy and last the entire beer.
Smell is malty and tart like cherries. Taste follows the smell well with a bit of molasses added to the malt and cherry. Not much hop bitterness in my glass.
Really smooth for a abv almost 10. I could drink this all day if it weren't so strong.
From a bottle into a pint glass.
