Ommegang Abbey Ale

Brewery Ommegang

USA

Yikes this sucks! I bought a four-pack of this because it was made in Cooperstown, NY. I regretted it after the first bottle. I suppose I'll try it again to see if I change my mind, but don't expect miracles.

This was absolutely awesome. Nice malty, sweet flavor, burgundy aroma, this was a perfect evening beer to relax with. Half of the enjoyment of this beer comes from the aroma, so to more fully enjoy it, pour it into a wide-mouthed belgian-style beer glass. A wide-mouthed wine glass will work too, but failing that, go with whatever glass you are most comfortable with (as long as you use a glass). The head that built up was absolutely perfect, like nothing I've ever seen in an American ale (and contributes to the release of the aroma). And I've never seen a label so crammed with info, from how to pour it to info on stuff to do in Cooperstown NY.
