3.2/5  rDev -15.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A 750 mL corked and caged bottle. In a Duvel mini and shared with ksak.

A: Dark ale? Appropriate, like the new-fangled Belgian stouts that never quite took hold. In this case, the ale looks like a stout - black with a tan-colored head. That head, over a finger and a half on pour, is lacing nicely all around the curvy upper section of my glass.

S: Belgian chocolate and fruits, plenty of sweetness to around. The chocolate is semi-sweet, at times turning bitter while the fruit is fleshy and dark. The yeast is active, adding to the sweetness that, at times, overruns the chocolate.

T: Interesting amalgum of flavors, with the cocoa nibs adding dark sweetness and mild bitterness. The yeast adds a significant aspect, driving dark fruity sweetness - think fleshy fruits, cherries and plums. The yeast lends Ommegang's house flavor to the beer, estery especially near the finish. The roasted flavors, paired with the yeast, are some of the most Belgian that I've encountered.

M: The mouthfeel is sweet but well roasted. All things being equal, Ommegang's special releases haven't been exciting in a few years. This is no exception.
