look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Pours a deep brown -- ruby red when held to the light -- with a medium-small head that quickly thins to a wispy film of bubbles.

The aroma is more or less as expected, but no less impressive because of the fact: raisins, brown sugar, cherries, slight alcohol.

Taste is fairly similar to the aroma: brown sugar, dark malts, lots of dark fruit (raisins and figs in particular), a bit of cherry, a fair amount (albeit not an unpleasant amount) of alcohol warmth. Medium-full body, medium-light carbonation.

Overall, a wonderful beer that certainly stands up to its elder Belgian siblings.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Dark, opaque brown. 1 finger tan head that dissipates to a thin film across the top with decent carbonation.

Smell: Dark fruit, some candied sweetness, a bit of belgian yeast, and a small amount of bitterness.

Taste: Follows the nose, but the taste shows the alcohol a bit more. Some delicious candied sweetness, dark fruit shines through, and the belgian yeast and hint of bitterness sit on the back.

Mouthfeel: Good carbonation across the tongue with a oily film upon the finish

Overall: This is a great beer. Definitely one to try. Ommegang rarely does wrong.
