750ml capped bottle drank out of my chimay chalice. this was purchased and consumed shortly after it appeared on the local shelves.
A- this one pours out a rather dark brown colored body with a finger of solid looking off-white colored head. the head lasts longer than expected and leaves behind small spots of lacing.
S- the smell starts out with some toasted bread and sweet brown sugar. caramel and toffee come through as well. fruity belgian yeast shine through fairly dominantly and give off some scents of cherry, raisin, fig, and dates. the alcohol seems pretty well hidden. little to nothing from the barrel.
T- the belgian yest i could smell comes through first and im able to pick out cherries, dates, figs, and plums. raisins/tobacco also. toffee and caramel come through and add a pretty high level of sweetness. theres also plenty of brown sugar in here. the barrel aging (25% anyways) makes itself barely known with a little bit of vanilla/oak. somewhat spicy also.
M- light bodied, some might consider it moderate. the carbonation. the alcohol is pretty well hidden.
D- definitely different than the previous "beers of christmas" series. decently enjoyable now. well see how well this beer comes together in a few years, and if i can hold out, 9 more.
