found the color a little curious. I expected a much darker beer and when it poured a burnt orangish color, I was wishing it was either a little darker or a little lighter. It did pour a nice thick head though. had held up and laced nicely. The aroma is very much a strong Belgian ale with hints to break, must, cheese, raisins. Now that I think of it sort of like a fruitcake, but maybe it’s the seasonal label influencing me. First sip a full mouth-feel and a noticeable alcohol tingle. Very sweet followed by a little bitterness. Nice alcohol burn and a little warmth in the cheeks. A very good Christmas beer. One to sip and enjoy on a cold night.

330cL bottle into a chalice
26/07/2014


A: Very hazy to the point of being nearly opaque. Kind of an ugly colored brown, with less than 1/2 a fingers width of fizzy head that quickly dissipates down and leaves essentially no lacing. 3.25

S: Tons of vinous dark fruit notes, candied sugar, caramel/toffee. The vinous notes are almost tart at times. 4

T: Sweetness with dark fruits, cocoa, candied sugar. A pretty solid degree of spice that I didn’t get on the nose at all, with an almost bitter quality3.75. A bit of booze that adds a nice balancing component, but may be a bit dominant at times. 3.75

M/D: Full bodied, carbonation appropriate, ABV noticeable but fairly tame for 12%, drinkability is dangerously good. 4

O: Enjoyable beer. Not something I would go to often, but certainly worth a try. 4

330 ml bottle was poured into a tulip glass.

Appearance: A one finger off white head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is an amber color with vision of tiny bubbles when held up to a light.

Smell: Fruity, dark fruits, cherries, raisins, warm alcohol, spicy, bready, fruit cake, candied orange, caramel,

Taste: Same as above. A little heat from the alcohol. Some bitterness. Sweetness and bready malts, spicy, and fruity.

Mouthfeel: Silky smooth, a bit dry, nice warm alcohol, high carbonation, a little chewy, and medium to high carbonation.

Overall: Haven't had this style of beer in a while. Forgot how much I miss them. I should revisit this and others more often. So nice during these winter months.
