look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance: Deep brown pour with a red hint. The head isn't too impressive and dissipates pretty quickly.
Smell: Spices hit you when you (painstakingly) unwrap the foil and THEN undo the cork. The mixture of the spices as well as the malt and yeast make for quite a delicious winter scent.
Taste: An extremely spicy flavor attacks your taste buds but is quickly followed by a malty smoothness that leads you back into the spicy-ness. A great tasting christmas brew, easily the best I tasted this year.
Mouthfeel: Medium body with a rich amount of carbonation.
Drinkability: A little easy to consume but when the bigger bottle is finished you're ready to move on, but yet a feeling of accomplishment still settles in your stomach.
The beers from the Huyghe brewery really have to be enjoyed on tap. Having tried this beer in the bottle, it is good. On tap, unbelievable. It becomes fresher and more flavorful, it's more carbonated which helps balance it; the beer almost pulls a night and day comparison with the difference. That being said, not easy to track down on tap unless you go abroad (this took me two years to find, but well worth the wait).
