250 ml bottle (2006), ABV is now 6%. Now available in Norway (Vinmonopolet). Deep chestnut hazy colour, huge and creamy tan head. Pleasant aroma of dried fruits, candy sugar and oak, vinous notes. Flavour is slightly less complex, moderately spicy and herbal with some oaky and vinous notes, definitely acceptable but not quite as good as top notch Belgians. Mouthfeel could have been fuller.

Vintage 2005 BBE 2008 6% ABV. Nice presentation with good head and dark brown beer with orange shine in the light, nice and clean as the rest of the brew is. Nose gives lots of clove, cinnamon and probably some others giving it a spicy and real christmas like IMO. Taste is on the dry side peppery sipy and probably some cinnamon and liquorice also. Finishes even more peppery and dry but in between there was good full taste with balanced alcohol. Feels good in the mouth though and fine to drink. Great brew and a fine christmasdrink, happy to find a christmasbeer with "moderate" alcohollevel and still the whole enjoyment of these fine belgium winterbrews.

The first impression of the smell is wine-like, muscat grapes, grappa of raisin. Hints of almonds, and wine barrique. Good marsala, and maybe liquorice (more evident in the taste). The taste is marzapane, liquorice, plum, artichoke (?). The colour is coppered (maybe). The head is scarce and not persistent, the body is flowing and fast.
