Pours two fingers of head initially, then it quickly formed to almost four fingers. A dark brown body.
The aroma is brown sugar, molasses and anise.
The taste is mild at first, roasted malt and licorice sweetness, mild bitter in the middle, finish is long and mildly sweet.
The texture is light and soft.
Great smelling and nice flavor.

On-tap. Chimay Chalice glass. Enjoyed @ La Més Petita (Barcelona). Pours very dark brown headed by beige foam. Crown is close & leaves a thin lasting layer on top. Spiced –vanilla & anice-, dark fruit, molasses, brown sugar , Belgian yeast & caramel malt aromas. Toasted caramel malt & crispy fruity upfront. Medium to full body. Moderate to soft carbonation. Herbal bitterness & gentle warming alcohol. Flavorful & delicious. ABV is neither harsh nor acidic & sweet maltiness is no cloying so drinkability is pleasant.

The look of this Christmas style Belgian is dark brown to black in body with a rich, creamy head.

The aromas are very Belgian Quad, Belgian Strong with lots of candied fruit such as date, prune, raisin and fig.

The scent tells the tale but it has a lot more sweetness on the tongue, than in the nose. The fruits are dried and sugary with a lot of raisin, vinous wine, fig, date, apricot and prune.

The feel is very smooth, close to viscous with a bit of thickness. The carbonation is low as it has a creamy slickness.

Kerstmutske Christmas Ale 7.5% abv

Deep ruddy brown hue light tan head fine speckled lacing down the sides of my glass. Aroma has dark ripened fruits, mild spicy yeast notes a hint of cider crushed apples and plump dark raisins. Tart apples, dark cherries with bready malts a bit late to qualify as a Xmas in July beer. Very pleasant flavorful Christmas ale brewed at DeProef, it is refreshing and warming drinks really easy, velvet texture smooth bottle conditioned CO2. Overall a beer I will revisit during the holidays.

Poured like a champ, highly carbonated and good amount of lacing. Smells aromatic and bready with Candy Sugar and spices.

Tastes a bit thin, but with a solid meaty finish.

Oveall I really liked this beer. Im a huge fan of spiced Belgian Strongs.
