A: deep amber brown ale, slightly hazed with a creamy white head a finger or two high; lace motes adorn the glass
S: deep toffee malts and sweet dark fruits, sweet holiday spice
T: a basic dark Belgian ale, with candi sugar, chewy dark malts, and some rich, boozy fruit flavors brightened and improved upon with Cape Gooseberries, which add a sweet and tart bright, light character - almost like a jam preserve of gooseberries, and in this particular ale, delicious
M: medium body, slightly sticky, tart tingles, smooth and coating
O: a very nice and enjoyable ale - the gooseberry tartness is really great - made the beer, and its why I'll recommend this beer - 'specially if you like tart dark berry flavors in beer, or if you like holiday-themed dark Belgian-esque ales.

Poured into a tulip glass a hazy medium brown with a tinge of amber,a sticky one finger head atop,wasn't a fan of the hazed murkiness to the color.Aromas have a lactic kick to them from the gooseberries to go along with mild spiced phenols and lemony notes.Again some lactic-like notes imparted from the gooseberries on the palate along with some clove spice with a hint of barnyard in the finish but not real strong.Not a bad beer,lightly acidic and somewhat refreshing even for its size.

Dark brown in color with a lot of haziness. There's a faint bit of off white head that covers most of the top of the beer. Brussels lacing. Dal malt is prevalent in the nose and a fruitiness that I assume is from the gooseberries. There's plenty of dark malt and caramelized dark candidate sugar in the front of the palate. I get a bit of tartness from the gooseberries to balance things out. The mouth is fairly carbonated and a bit syrupy. There's a bit of earthiness present in the fade either from the spiciness.
