Been waiting on this guy for a while, it's pretty expensive, so when Costco had a 3 for 2 deal, a box set of Hennepin, Three Philosophers and Rare Vos, I jumped on it, great deal. Served in a snifter.

A: Pours a deep, rec-brown, cloudy, cherry color, with a short light tan head with bits of lacing

S: Incredible aroma, rich fruitiness, plums, cherries, bananas, simply wonderful, also yeast is very dominant, vanilla as well, malt sugars, very inviting

T: Robust flavor to it, very complex, enriching. Yeast is very present, also fruity notes, cherries, plums, it is a fairly sweet beer, has earthy tones to it, yeast, malt sugars, wheat, barley, hints of citrus even, also alcohol is very present.

M: Fairly balanced, at times I felt it was over carbonated, but the robustness, complexity and richness of the flavors well overcame the carbonation, booze levels gave a nice, complementing warmness to it.

O: Of course, Ommegang, lives up to it's name, I've never been disappointed by an Ommegang beer, and probably never will. Although I got the beer for a good deal, it is generally expensive but it its well worth it, wonderful taste, very rich and robust, very delicious, basically a dessert rather than a beverage, at least once everyone should make the effort to try this.
