Tallahassee, Fl. - New Leaf Market, 750 ml caged cork bottle. Fragrant aroma with loads of spices - coriander, orange peel, hint of chocolate. Flavor has the same spiciness with some nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves and a touch of licorice. Gets even better as it warms. Mouthfeel is thick and rich with just the right amount of spritz. Excellent winter warmer.

Highly spiced amazing flavor. With coriander, dark fruits, very sweet. One of the best heavily spiced beers I have had in recollection.

Hot damn! What a nice new beer from Ommegang! Had this a couple times at the Malt House here in Madison. One of the nicest beers I’ve had in quite a while. Wish it wasn’t that pricey otherwise id be buying it all the time. Pours a clear copper colour with a vanilla coloured head. Nose is noticeably spicey. Lots of different smells going on at once. Instant cardamom and ginger. Taste has quite a bit of spice with some squash and pumpkin notes. An absolutely beautiful beer.

Pours a muddy brown with a small head. Aroma is a nice spice blend with some orange and sweet malt thrown in. Flavor is more of the spices and a hint of smoky wood in the distant background. Very warming on the way down. Finishes a bit sweet with the warm alcohol burn. Nicely done.

A strong spicy aroma with lots of winter spices like cloves and cardamon. Body is medium with an initial orange fruit flavor. The beer finishes out with sweet notes of spice. Rather unique.

Orange brown pour with a small white head. Aroma is riddled with dark fruit and copious spice. Orange peel, clove, and slight caramel. Flavor is not as malt heavy as I was imagining, instead spice prevails. Tons of spice- both herbal and capsaicin based. Palate is medium with mild effervescence and a slippery, spicy finish. Not extreme or overly aggressive, but extremely enjoyable.

Thanks to Cheeseman for the taste. Pours Hazy brown. Aroma has lots of holiday spice, fruity and some belgian esters. Taste is very Belgian yeast driven, lots of esters with dark fruit, spices. I liked this brew, good stuff.

not as spicy as I was looking for. Really bubble gummy. thin mouthfeel without much lingering flavor. That being said, still a pretty good beer.

Hazy brown russet colored with a fizzy tan head. The aroma is very fruity, not as spicy as I expected. The flavor is quite sweet, chocolaty, with the spicing playing an interesting though too small role. Fairly full body. At first I was not all that impressed, but it grew on me as I sipped more.
