look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Translucent cloudy brown in appearance, very full tan head. Has some character.

Smell: Appropriate for the style, can detect some of the alcohol and some tart fruit notes.

Taste: I was surprised. At 9.8% ABV I was expecting the alcohol to be overpowering but everything was extremely balanced and smooth. I actually picked up a lot of coffee type notes and a little tart sweetness.

Mouthfeel: Again, was expecting some alcohol bite but was not noticeable, the beer was actually very smooth and almost creamy.

Overall: I was very impressed with this one. Taste was well balanced and overall a well-executed beer, bit unique for the style. This was my first beer from the Ommegang brewery and I will definitely try some others.
