Served on tap as a 10 oz pour at Tyler's Taproom in Apex, NC.
Arrived at the table in goblet style glass. Light brown or dark amber in color with lots of active carbonation creating a lively head of at least 2 fingers or so. Lacing was also good, pretty much going down the glass. Looks fantastic.
Aromas were a little bit of a surprise in that there really wasn't anything particularly interesting to report. There were some of the typical Belgian notes that you might expect from Ommegang - the dark fruit smell and the slight hint of banana. Nothing overpowering and nothing more than, well, average.
The brew redeems itself well upon tasting it. There is a beautiful complexity that doesn't break up as you roll it over your tongue. There are the malts with dark fruit, some caramel malts, and a nice warming sense as it goes down. Some hints of vanilla linger on the finish. Nice.
Mouthfeel is relatively carbonated and bubbly but the bubbles are rather fine and seem to go well with the brew. Overall I very much enjoyed this brew and really need to find it somewhere to take home.

Poured a deep red with a paper thin cream colored head. Nose is heavy with winter spices and sweet citrus. Taste was unusually sweet at first then a sharp tang if spice and hops at the finish with a lively carbonation throughout. Very nice on a cold winter's (or cool summer's) day.

Poured into a chalice. The beer pours a decent cream colored and creamy head that dissipates quickly. The beer itself is an opaque brown with a hints of red and light purple. The color is close to that of a lighter plum color. The beer smell has sweet dark fruits notes and bready yeast notes as well. The beer also has a very subtle alcohol note along with a slight caramel taste. However, the dark fruit notes such as plum, a little bit of grape, and nectarine dominate the smell. The taste is similar but the taste also has some Belgian sugar notes. The yeast notes are stronger and counteract the dark fruit tastes very well. The mouthfeel is heavy bodied with biting carbonation but is still very smooth. Overall, a good beer and one worth getting when you can. I can certainly see why this thing would warm someone up at night.
