look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Surprisingly pale cherry amber with egg challah-yellow foam head that rims like mad.
Baked apple, spice, petrol, and ginger cake nose - deep.
Fruitcake malts, some poached pear esters, mild yeast spice, and grassy hops to end.
Cola finish and cherry stone linger.
Medium, round, smooth, chewy.

Shows lighter than expected, but nothing missing as far as flavor. Solid all arounder. No burn, yeast is under-, fruit and cake both - can't fault is as last beer of Christmas night.

Beautiful amber color; luscious head.
Slightly alcholic on the nose. Pleasant mouthfeel.

Overall, a very good beer but nothing that stands out and says "pick me!".

I'm going to put a bottle down and try it next year, then I'll re-review.

Aroma: Phenolic, spicy aroma.
Appearance: Amber color, head is huge.
Flavor: Sweet. Spicy flavor is dominant. Sweet finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-full body and alcoholic character. A little bit hot.
Overall: Sweet spicy Belgian ale. Too sweetness destroys total balance.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Serving glass: Poured from tap into Tulip.

Appearance: Very cloudy orangish-brown with not too much head (but it was from tap and I didn't see the pour).

Smell: Hard to pinpoint, but I am getting traces of overripe fruits, raisins, butterscotch, fruitcake and spices.

Taste: Like the aroma, this is a wide mix of notes that mostly work well together but make it hard to describe. Plum, raisin, butterscotch, fruitcake, coconut and licorice all seem to be in there. The finish is lightly spicy and even a little cognac like.

Feel: Medium to full body that is smooth and chewy. Carbonation is lower than it would be if from the bottle.

Overall: This really does have a Christmas vibe going on. I like it.

Best before 9/30/13.

Pours an almost opaque super dark brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Chunks of sediment are seen floating around in the beer after the pour. Smell is of malt, dark fruit, brown sugar, and spice aromas. There is also a slight soy sauce aroma that comes out as the beer warms up but it's not really a negative thing. Taste is much the same with dark fruit and slight spice flavors on the finish. There is a very mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a nice dark fruit presence in the aroma and flavor.
