A-dark amber, almost red. Thin off white head.
S-smells like strong dark Belgian sugars with a very sweet syrupy scent to it. Also some caramels and fairly tart dark cherries. Almost has a buttercream aroma to it as well.
T-comes on with a very thick and sweet flavor of dark berries and caramels. It's so syrupy and sweet tasting, not in the best way. It does have a slight burnt caramel aspect to it as well. It doesn't have too much of a Belgian dark ale in it at this point. Definitely tastes like a beer with a high abv.
M-thick and syrupy. Not too much carbonation.
O-such a disappointment, I generally love these Bruery Christmas beers but these past 2 years have been a disappointment. It's just way too syrupy and it leaves your tongue with an odd stickiness. I really wish I would've shared this.

bottle picked up locally cause i'm a sucker for this series and at this point, why start skipping them? enjoyed from a 5 oz brewery taster...stemless snifter glass.
a - a semi transparent mahogany brown with a thin bubbly head that bubbles away no real lace to speak of.
s - nose is sweet. dark berry and just sweetness. smells like a lot of the american takes on a BSDA...missing the lush creaminess of the classics.
t - definitely sweet...as the nose suggested. hints of brown sugar behind some dark fruit and berry.
m - extraordinarily thin. lacking the creaminess and body that a good BSDA needs.
o - overall, the bruery makes some amazing beers, and they also make lots of meh beers...because they make SO many different beers. there hasn't really been a superstar yet in this series and it makes sense since these are all one offs. i doubt time will do magic on this one, hopefully tame down the sweetness....all in all for some dumb reason i feel the need to try all of these and the BA versions (some of those are pretty solid) and every time i consider stopping and then just go for the tick. oh well, if you aren't ticking or collecting the set, i'd pass on this beer. not a drain pour...but that's about all i can say about it.
