750 ml bottle into tulip glass, best before July 2014. Pours nearly crystal clear ruby red color with a 2 finger dense light khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings around the glass, with some moderate streaming carbonation. Aromas of big cherry, plum, raisin, pear, apple, caramel, molasses, candi sugar, toast, brown bread, clove, pepper, floral, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of malt and fruity/spicy yeast notes; with good strength. Taste of cherry, plum, raisin, pear, apple, caramel, molasses, candi sugar, toast, brown bread, clove, pepper, floral, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of cherry, raisin, plum, pear, apple, caramel, molasses, candi sugar, toast, brown bread, clove, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and complexity of malt and fruity/spicy yeast ester flavors; with a great malt/yeast flavor balance and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a moderately slick and slightly syrupy mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a small warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent Belgian Dark ale! All around great balance and complexity of malt and fruity/spicy yeast flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

A: This poured a clear dark mahogany with moderate light tan head.
S: It smelled like waxy hops and grassy Belgian yeast, with some biscuit and light earthy caramel.
T: It tasted like earthy roasted barley and burnt sugar, with some waxy hops and grassy Belgian yeast. It had a somewhat clean bitter and earthy aftertaste.
M: It was watery with lots of natural carbonation. Bubbly body.
D: This wasn't as good as I hoped. No real Christmas spices, more like an average dubbel. The body didn't seem right for the style either, and the finish was a little rough, so it wasn't super easy to drink. Not a high quality brew.
