Poured unto a tulip, why because I felt like it; plus it came with the beer (Ommegang signature tulip).

Smell: Absolute aroma...fruits, dark ones. Berries, sligfht banana, and malts.

Appearance: Dark semi-cloudy amber, head is a light orange bubbly but not thick roughly 1/2"

Taste: Not too bitter, light yeast and almost like a hoppy sweet. Very smooth and evident in alcohol.

Mouth: Light-medium carbonation, perfect balance that just compliments the taste.

Overall: Incredibly well crafted beer which gets better and better as you get towards the end of the glass. It is hard to rate this beer but not hard to love it. I truly hope you all enjoy...Salud!

12 oz bottle was poured into a Stella glass.

Appearance: The beer poured a one finger head that has reduced to a thin layer. A nice reddish brown color with little clarity and some signs of carbonation coming up the side of the glass.

Smell: Super dark fruits and booze on the nose. Figs, plums, dates, raisins, cherries, bananas, caramel and bready malts. This stuff smells awesome.

Taste: Fruity flavors are all blended together nicely and alcohol booziness is in the back of the sip.

Mouthfeel: Silky smooth, medium carbonation, medium bodied, a little dry, and the alcohol is noticeable.

Overall: This beer is a good quad. I know there are others that are better, but this one is easily accessible and happy with me. I love the fact that the beer can warm up and still taste delicious and the aromas and flavors stand out more than when this review was originally started.
