Good beer. I found the anise to be a bit over powering.

A: black with a finger or less tan head
S: booze and yeast are the main players here. Anise in the background
T: The taste follows the nose, booze, yeast, licorice/anise and a coffee finish
M: very thick and chewy, carbonation also plays a role in this.
O: Very good beer, typical for Ommegang. For me it is easy to taste this and think of their other core beers. So if you like Three Philosophers, or the abbey ale for example you would like this.

Opened about a year after purchase. Possibly past its prime. Drank more like a porter than a Belgian dark. Earthy with a medium heavy roast. Lacks the complexity expected for the style, probably due to age.

Any opinions on storing this beer to age?
