Poured into a snifter.

A: Opaque amber. An off-white half finger head that dissipates fast. Thick lacing.

S: Dark fruits (dates, raisins, figs) along with bready malts.

T: Follows nose in a smooth and sweet concoction perfect for the holidays.

M: Medium with medium carbonation.

O: Many have said this is the best of the Deliriums and I'm not disappointed. A great sipper with friends. Toast the season with this little elephant.

A: Pours a crystal clear brownish amber in color with moderate to heavy amounts of active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and faint garnet red highlights. The beer has a three finger tall dense foamy beige head that slowly reduces to a very thick film covering the entire surface of the beer with a very thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of dark fruits (raisins) and light fruits (apples and white grapes) along with lighter notes of spices and the distinct Belgian yeast.

T: Upfront there is a moderate flavor of dark malts with moderate flavors of dark fruit (raisin) and light fruit (apple and white grape), though with only a light amount of sweetness. That is followed by light to moderate flavors of spices and light flavors of that distinct Belgian yeast. Minimal amounts of bitterness in the finish which does not linger.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Light amounts of dryness in the finish.

O: This is a big beer and one that I prefer to sip slowly when I enjoy it - there is a moderate amount of complexity and the beer is not too sweet making it pretty easy to drink. Definitely one I look forward to during the holiday season. Complexity increases as the beer warms up.

Aroma = lemon zest, roasted malt
Appearance = caramel, toffee
Taste = light, malty, caramel sweet but not overwhelming
Palate = soft, fluffy, like snow falling on Christmas Eve, the warm roasted notes hide the high abv delicately
Overall = 3.5 / 5

Huge pear and dark Belgian sugar yumminess, with caramel and melanoidin notes. Flavor is more green apple, with rummy dates, figs, and brown sugar notes. Very rich and delicious.
