Pours with brilliant clarity and a depth to it's colorful hues. Deep amber, orange, copper, even mahogany and fiery golden yellow around the edges of the glass. Fat tan head of foam that lasts and leaves lace. Nose is bright and fruity with banana, and orange peel. There is some brown sugar, some candi sugar and the earthiness of coriander on the nose. Taste is perfection. It is sweet and the malt offers the driest , lightest biscuit adorned with that touch of brown sugar. The fruit is sensual and rich but it's the spices that accent this beer so well. The cardamom is like perfume and reminds me of spice cake. The coriander is earhty and stalwart. The grains of paradise offer a bit of pepper in the drink and the mace is so mild I could liken it to a bit of nutmeg. There is a touch of estery alcohol in this that is also very much like perfume to the nose. On the palate it just tings like a small bell with a shy impertinence and a tempting gaiety. Perfect carbonation. No bite at all just a light enlivening of the palate from the bubbles and a medium mouthefeel. Perfect dryness so there is nothing heavy or syrupy here.

I love this beer. Fantastic!

12 oz bottle poured into an Ommegang stemmed pokal.

Reddish-copper with 1 finger of creamy, tan head. Very hazy with suspended yeast sediment.

Banana bread, caramel, raisin, and dark candy syrup. Clove, coriander, and orange zest.

Raisin, black plum, and concord grape. Banana bread, molasses, dark caramel, dark candy syrup, and lightly toasted grains. Big bready maltiness along with the dark candy sugars. Bouquet of spices include clove, coriander, orange zest, cardamom, and hints of potpourri.

Medium bodied, sweet, silky, smooth, and warming with light carbonation.

Very sweet and candy-like. Complex with a well blended melange of spices. Exceptional BDSA!

A great brew. Lots of flavor, & great, dark hints of spice with a sweet aftertaste. Never a let down with any Brewery Ommegang beers, in my opinion.
