This is the 3rd installment in some narrative. I’m a big fan of Ommegang and I liked the previous stout they put out. This one? Not so much. It is like some Belgian Ale without the Belgian Ale. Blood red hue. Flat head. A taste of rosemary, a tinge of cherry. It lacks body and a real depth. It feels like an ale you would eat at some mid-level fancy place than at some palace with dragons. It’s an alright beer but for Ommegang a bit of a mistep. Like Star Wars Episode 6.

Palme (4811) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 24, 2017
On tap @ Barleycorn. Quite a clouded looking one this, deep dark ruby brown in color and a nice lacing lasting off-white head. Smells kinda Belgian. Dark caramel and chocolate. Some yestiness and traces of cocoa. Nice smelling aroma. Yeah, it’s a nice dubbel this. Tastes pretty good with lots of subtle small Belgian flavors. Chocolate, cocoa, dark candied sugar, some dry fruitiness. It’s nice and oily in the mouth while about average on the carbonation. Traces of burnt rye and hay in the finish. Liked this one. 16.06.2015

nuplastikk (6289) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 24, 2016
Tap at Dexters. Filtered brown-amber body. Big, foamy off-white head. Interesting beer. Delicate fluffy body. Interesting meld of amber, fruity ancho pepper, rye, Belgian yeast. Zesty, spicy, some definite fruity pepper tones, but no real heat. A solid beer, lots of depth. Well executed.

jjgmd (2163) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - JUN 13, 2016
Pours an amber red color with a nice beige head. Nose is fruity , sweet mixed nicely with hops . Taste is fruity, mildly peppery sweet and mixed with a nice confluence of hops and malt . Finishes on the same tasting notes, with some mild peppery notes into the moderately long ending. Very drinkable ! Quaff Score 7 / 10

Metalchopz (3390) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 19, 2016
Pours a hazy deep amber colour with lots of particles through it. Big beige head, good retention and thick creamy-foamy lacing. Toasted malt aromas with caramel and some dark fruit notes. The taste also starts with the toasted malts, going through some fruitiness and some hops appear in the finish. A pretty nice, higher-end red ale.

Sample during at Daily Growler Powell during the "5th Friday $5 Fest" on 04/29/2016. Hazy dark reddish-mahogany color with a medium off-white head that diminishes gradually. Partial rings of lacing. Aroma of red fruit, spice and hops. Medium body with flavors of fruity hops, chili pepper and smoky malt. The finish is hoppy and fruity with a mild chili aftertaste. Decent overall.
