2013.02.13- Ommegang XV - 750ml bottle in goblet glass. Pours a deep mahogany brown. Medium low carbonation produces a decent creamy tan head which subsides quickly to a foamy center cap and ring. Aroma is quite interesting. Agree with CyberCat below, it's fruity (of plum, raisin, fig sort of variety) and a bit of treacle or molasses. Maybe a bit of caramel. Mouthfeel is pretty medium. it's not too heavy but it is a bit creamy. Carbonation seems a really good level, lightly fizzy mouthfuls. Taste is very interesting and fairly complex. Breweries seem to pull out the stops for anniversary brews and it shows. Flavor seems to go from fruity (plum, raisin, dark fruit, etc) into a bit of candy sugar or molasses-y sweetness and then a very mild alcohol burn on the back end. Tasty stuff, possibly my favorite Ommegang. Aroma 8/10, Appearance 4/5, Taste 8/10, Palate 4/5, Overall 17/20

Cybercat (3200) - Georgia, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Strong, syrupy aroma has decidedly fruity and treacle notes, with a hint of horehound. Pours a dark, barely translucent sepia with a thick, dark buff head that hangs around for a bit. Robust, mouth-filling flavor has firm notes of malt, apple, caramel and horehound. Gets them lips a-smackin’! Firm, smooth texture has a good fizz and leaves a somewhat fruity-sweet finish as if I had just eaten a very tasty pear. Dairug-beer XV!

Mora2000 (5530) - McKinney, Texas, USA - FEB 1, 2013
Dark brown with red highlights and a tan head. Aroma has a lot of raisins in it as well as some lightly roasted malt and some brown sugar. The flavor is very similar. There is a lot of candy sugar as well as some raisins, plums and other dark fruit. There is also some nice malt in the flavor and a bit of alcohol. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Very nice.

CanIHave4Beers (3142) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - JAN 31, 2013
Pours a very dark reddish brown with a small, thin, but well retained head.

The aroma is plum and fig with some Cavendish tobacco, some caramel and some brown sugar. Impossibly rich and inviting, pungent but nothing that smacks you across the face, nuanced, at times subtle, but very rich smelling.

The flavor is fruity with both pear and darker fruit notes of raisin, fig, cherry, etc. The beer has a very noticeable presence of spicy alcohol notes, but it’s never over boozy or unpleasant. Some robust rye bread and light roastiness provide a some balance.

This is a very enjoyable beer.
