4/5  rDev -0.2%

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.

Poured a 750 ml bottle into a chalice. Finishing 2012 and starting 2013 off with a good beer.

Appearance: This beer poured a one finger head that reduced to a thin layer. It is a murky crimson brown with some clarity and bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: super maltiness and dark fruit goodness. I do pick up some of that orange mamalade a lot of people are talking about, pepper, bready malts, a little chocolate, dark fruits, and lots of goodness.

Taste: Caramel, chocolate, and bready malts. Spicy pepper, raisins, oranges, some bitternes, and a lot of the mentioned flavors above too.

Mouthfeel: Silky smooth, medium to high carbonation, medium to full bodied, and some boozy alcohol.

Overall: Pretty solid BSDA that was quite the treat. Happy to have scored this a year ago. It is good to know that it stood the test of time. Best before was 9/30/13. Might have to see if the store has any more bottles kicking around.

Poured from 22oz caged bottle into pint. Pours a nice ruby hue brown with off white head. Really nice sweet dried fruity aromas...some cognac/sweet liquor notes. Great dried fruit and fruitcake belgian flavor, some banana and chocolate. Smooth but sharp flavor...well balanced and great spice chatacter but not overly done. Really nice brew.
