Great dark amber color. Tons of lacing. Small amount of nose but good taste and palate. Dark fruit and spice. More of a one and done for me but tasty overall. Impressed overall by ommegang beers so far.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured in to tulip glass. Aroma is deep and earthy with a roasty caramel scent. Slight notes of resin and clove. Tall off white 2 finger head that subsides down to a 1 finger and stays with little lacing. Beautiful dark amber brown color almost opaque. Taste is a nice sweet tang on the front with a malty and slightly floral flavor. The back end presents a very slight bitterness that drops in to a nutty caramel. Good fizzy feeling throughout which leaves the mouth feeling moist and slightly sticky after eating something sugary. Overall this is a fantastic brew thats easy to sip on throughout the night but watch out for that 9.7 ABV because it will creep.

This dark amber colored beer has a sweet aroma of cherry. It does really smell like a kriek. It has a very yeasty but full heavy roasted flavor. It says there is a whiskey barrel aged version I this which I bet is amazing.
