UPDATED: JUL 17, 2005 Excellant looking cherry color brewskie. Sweet sugary nose...maybe molasses. Crazy flavor combinations going on here. I taste toffee, chocolate, carmel, and abit of vanilla. I dig this sweet juice. bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JAN 31, 2004
(Bottle) Pours a deep mahogany color with a medium-sized beige head. Has a complex flavor of raisins, yeast, caramel, toffee and a hint of chocolate. balke13 (156) - MIssoula, Montana, USA - JAN 30, 2004
very deep burgandy color, almost opaque with a nice creamy tan head...smells of carmel and honey, quite sweet, very complex flavor...definitely taste the alcohol as well as the carmel and a woody flavor from the aroma...anise also, very smooth going down and a bit dry on the finish...good experience for my first ever belgian strong TChrome (1472) - North Richland Hills, Texas, USA - JAN 28, 2004
Quite attractice reddish brown in color with a red twinged beige head that is dissipating. Aroma is pleasent also, with tons of fruit notes and candy sugar. The flavor is nice and complex and multi-layered. Flavor is initially sweet with good yeast then finishes very dry with a final burst of fruit. Yummy!!

Deep mahogany red, with nice head. Aroma of raisins and malt, with some yeast. Creamy body, flavors of raisins, currants, plums present, along with some toffee notes. Really shines as it hits room temperature. Much like Chimay Rouge in my opinion.

Brown sugar, malt and toffee are in the aroma. Hazy sunset red, pours a large toffee head with lot's of lace. Intriquing sweet malt, sponge toffee and almonds as well. Delightfully bitter, full bodied, creamy and well balanced. Fantastic! SpringsLicker (3641) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 22, 2004
Ommegang pours out a rich deep goppery brown under thick lasting head. Sweet caramel complexity with a smooth medium body. Very nice domestic Belgian. monkeyman (57) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 10, 2004
Omme Gang Belgium Double Case packaged 03-20-03; 12 oz. Bottles; 01-04 tasting notes. This ale really, really wants to be 4-year old Chimay Grand Reserve. However, I note amoungst the sweetness a distinct alcohol burn and some sort of harsh "clank" in the finish. Something's missing here... maybe the massive initial blast of yeast (Grand Reserve) that mellows into magical Belgium heaven..

A very good beer - I love the deep burgundy color. Looks much better than most Belgian beers. Taste is right up there too. Has a nice fruity-sweet aroma and flavor. Very good. SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 3, 2004
Bottle. Brown and hazy, amber highlights when held to light and a thick off-white head that diminished in a dawdling way. Rich, complex aroma features dark roasted malts, yeast, molasses, deep red wine and tannic hops. Flavor is sweet and bitter, bready with noticible alcohol. Medium body and creamy carbonation. Nice ale, but from Ommegang, I prefer the Hennepin.
