Deep red...sweet and fruity nose...very fruity first sip with a severe alcohol bite right after...this is my least favorite Ommegang...Hennepin and Rare Vos are both far superior in quality and complexity...

millerclmb (44) - Boulder, Missouri, USA - JUL 3, 2004
A very fruity aroma of amareto (sp?) and ripe bananas. A nice robust redish brown with a slightly foamy head. The taste is of ripe bananas and sweet roast. Does not have the hoppy bite...or any sort of balancing kick to contrast the sweet malts. A little too sweet for my liking.

Crockett (1116) - Southampton, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 27, 2004
Pours deep mahogony with a thin tan head. Wood earth and light booze nose. Alcohol increases drastically as it warms. Some burnt malt flavours. Peppery carbonation, great considering the beer is probably 4 years old. Bready yeasty and sour. Light dried fruit and chocolate. Toffee and hopped dry finish.

Big HUGE fluffy head, complex aroma of yeast, fruit, malt and spices. Deep reddish brown. strong fruity esscence (raisins, currants?) Well masked alcohol, becoming more pronounced as the glass emptied. Nice finish, very dry on the palate.

DocLock (10478) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 21, 2004
Had at HBF from bottle. Poured burgundy, with a big head. Aroma of malt, fruit, yeast, spice, and peat. Tastes very complex with hints of all the aromas above. Nicely balanced, with well hidden alcohol.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 20, 2004
In my oppinion this is the best brew from ommegang. Very complex and strong with lots of malt and fruity yeasty notes going on yet it isnt overbearing. QUite drinkable for such a strong beer. Goes down pretty easy.
