Deep brownish-red liquid in a snifter.
Smells like holiday spices (nutmeg and cinnamon, maybe clove too). Nice bit of yeast provides a banana tail to the nose. Slight sweet undertone from the malt.
Taste is great. Nice holiday Belgian warmer. Spices, sweet malt, banana esters, almost like a spiced dubble. Bubblegum, ginger, clove, herbs, and perfect mix between the yeast's flavor and the malt/spices.
Mouthfeel is exceptional. Love how Ommegang is able to keep the beer fresh feeling without too much carb. Beautifully done.
Drinkability is good. Many would enjoy this, even multiple servings in an evening. A solid seasonal from Ommegang.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
