Lovely beer. Perfectly made. Here goes:

L: Kind of hard to describe, actually. Brown, but not very much so (the bottom of my glass, where the diameter is less than that of the middle and top, emits a faint gold color - therefore, I must conclude that light of longer wavelengths, like yellow, is able to penetrate the beer in normal glasses). A ton of carbonation, a huge head that lingers, and plenty of carbonation accompany this beer.

S: Good, but somewhat gimmicky. Smell a lot of added spices (especially coriander), which give the beer an artificial smell. However, there is a lot of bready Belgian yeast, pepper, orange peel, and very, very sweet caramel malt.

T: Quite good. Lots of spices, bready Belgian yeast, caramel, candied sugar, orange peel, etc. Yeast and malt give this beer a rather good taste.

F: Perfect. Very well-carbonated with sufficient thickness.

O: Great beer by Ommegang.

A little strong, heavy gingerbread mix with a kick at the end. They pushed it to the max. It has it place!

Very pleasant strong dark ale. Powerful coriander notes may stand out a bit too much.

This is a GREAT Belgian dark ale! I can't say enough about this beer. It is deep and rich to the pour and strong in spice and warmth. The perfect beer for the holidays and cold weather. I'd also see this going well with many of the traditional holiday foods. It finishes strong, sweet, and warm... This is a GREAT BEER!

Strong beer from ommegang. Citrus and orange smell and taste. Filling but not hard to drink. Packs a punch , you'll feel it after you drink it. Had at one mile house nyc
