12oz bottle. Pours a dark hazy rusty brown with a large lasting beige head. Aroma is of sweet caramel malt, brown sugar, some mild banana and fruity notes, spices, a bit of orange peel and sweet alcohol notes. Taste same as aroma, with some, yeast mild and bitterness. Palate is a medium to full body with good carbonation. Finishes the same as taste with a fairly good amount of alcohol and slightly dry with bitterness on the end for balance. Seems to finish a bit on the bitter side. Overall a good drinking winter brew.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Sam Adams glass.(Sorry)
Its appearance was a dark amber, leaning toward reddish. Almost akin to an Irish red. Pillowy 2 1/2 finger bone white colored head with a lasting power of about 2 to 3 minutes, give or take a few minutes. Very few carbonation bubbles which is always a good thing for a winter warmer. A few sediments were floating along before settling to the bottom of the glass toward the end of the session.

This beer has an inviting smell of spices. All spice, pears? Didn't pick up the coriander but you can definitely perceive the cardamom.

The taste was exquisite. The taste of pear is the first thing I was able to detect then came the spices. This beer has a nice peppery, spicy tinge to it that's pleasant. It also has a woody, almost chardonnay flavor that prevents you from "nursing"it. It begs to be consumed before dinner arrives.

Overall, it is a delicious beer to say the least. One that I look forward to every winter. This was my last bottle from last winters haul. IMO, its one of ommegang's best beers. If it's available in your area get it when it's in season. You won't regret it.
