UPDATED: MAR 17, 2019 Pour into nonic pint glass. Appearance is hazy, deep cherry red with orange highlights, lots of effervescent sparkle, 2-finger quickly fading fizzy beige head with no lacing. Aroma is strong caramel, dark and stone fruits (primarily plum, raisin, peach). Taste is apple, caramel, brown sugar, honey, dark fruit. Palate is light bodied with smooth, thin texture, lively-to-fizzy carbonation, numbing the bottom lip, and finish as taste. Overall, nice color and strong aroma and taste. Palate's not altogether pleasant--thin and the carbonation almost hurts the tongue. Larry_Duffman (815) - - MAR 3, 2019
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2019 I poured it from the bottle into a tulip glass. It pours burgundy with a fluffy, tan head and lacing. The aroma is dark fruit, alcohol, and spice. The taste is raisin, plum, spice, and Belgian yeast. It's smooth. It's a good sipper and packs a punch. Like most beers from these guys, it's a great example of the style. julesxxl (2870) - FRANCE - OCT 21, 2018

It pours dark amber with reddish hues. It has excellent head retention with a light brown head that is tinged in red. It has strong caramel aromas with raisins and plums. The fruity smells because stronger as the beer warms a bit. There is some sugary sweetness to it. There is a very low level of chocolate in the nose. It is rather sweet to start with featuring sugar, plums and raisins. The is a combination of caramel and toffee in the malts with a slight bit of honey in the background. There is a hint of chocolate. It has a moderate body with a surprisingly semi dry finish. It has very smooth alcohol warming. Overall, a great combination of malts and fruity esters to produce a great dubbel. grundsow (198) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 6, 2018
Side-by-side blind taste test with Chimay Red, difficult to tell the difference. Ommegang lacked a little of the yeastiness, but other than that a very close match. Good beer.
