Thick and nearly black, this is a big, rich-looking brew. It's topped by a bit of tan head that stays around as well as sticking around in patches, even after the head drops (though the foam left is thick).
It's not so distinctly Belgian in the nose or on the tongue as Ommegang tends to be; the yeast isn't as much the focus, it seems, as they typically like to make it. The major factors are cherry and some bittersweet chocolate, certainly by way of chocolate malts and possibly by further addition to the beer. The cherry is tart and fresh. I would be interested to see how it would work out if the yeasty presence was upped. Good stuff, still.
Thick and rich without being sticky, this one has a good bite and a good, creamy flow developing a delicate smoothness in the big body that takes a master's touch.
