Beer was darker than I expected, pouring a deep tawny color with a caramel head. Nose was abundant, with loads of fruits, berries, chocolate, and malt tones competing for attention. The beers explodes into the same flavors on the tongue. Not an everyday beer for me, but an incredible experience when I'm in the mood for a big Abby ale.

12 oz bottle. Pours a dark copper color with a ton of tan head. Aroma is very mild. Some yeast, fruit, maybe molasses. Flavor has a lot of fruit--dried cherries, apricots, a hint of pear. Some nice malt and just a bit of saltiness. Subdued bitterness in the finish. Medium mouthfeel with mild carbonation. This is a very nice beer with a lot of stuff going on.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Mörkt bärnstensfärgad, disig med medelstort skum. I doften finns massor av torkad frukt, främst russin och mörka plommon,men även lite kryddor. Smaken är stor och fyllig med sötma från torkade frukter, mycket russin i eftersmaken, även lite toffesötma, en fin kryddighet som balanserar sötman och en liten beska på slutet. Munkänslan är stor, mjuk och rund. En riktigt smakrik och välbalanserad dubbel

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Smell of hop, malt, toast caramel, anise, cinnamon. Come in dark amber with thin brown crown. Full body taste with hop, malt, and sour caramel. Strong alcohol, somewhat bitter. Smooth but not as balanced due to hindered sourness. Good overall.

UPDATED: OCT 10, 2016 I went to Cooperstown NY this week, enjoyed the Hall of Fame and enjoyed this super tasting beer. Really great taste. Nice dark appearance, with a pleasant aroma, Really great taste with a very good aftertaste. Maybe the best Ommegang brews.

Grand beer! Faint nose of black plums. Mouth is full body coffee and chocolate with dried fruits, plums, apricots, sultanas, a light touch of licorice. Very well balanced with enough acidity to be fresh and not too sweet. Really good!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aromas of fig, black licorice, raisins and a little spice. Apperance was a deep murky brown, with very small floaters, medium carbonation, and the head was thin and tan. Flavors were similar to the aroma with the licorice being at the forefront, and the caramel and dark fruits lurking in the background. Overall not my favorite from ommegang but still a very solid brew.Originally rated on 10/8/2008.

Out of the bottle, poured light brown, cloudy, with a big rocky persistent tan head. Absolutely beautful in the glass. Malt forward notes of brown raisin bread, molasses, along with fig, cinnamon, and chocolate covered cherries. Rich and complex. Sublime. Loved it.
