Plenty of carbonation left it built quickly and ebbed away slowly. Lots of raisin in the nose with some dark fruit, molasses and caramel.

The flavors are light and sweet with molasses, maple, barley malt, prune, date and a finish of alcohol soaked raisin.

Very easy feel with a bit thinner feel than the Reserva but perhaps a more drinkable beer.

malt aroma with lots of fruit with a slightly boozey dark fruit flavor, mostly grape husk, fig and apple, somewhat slick mouthfeel, finishes pretty easy

Review from notes. Murky amber color with beige head. Aroma is malty with honey notes, makes me think of a barleywine. There are some belgian yeast qualities present in the taste but still, it resembles more a barleywine. Carbonation is indeed higher and body is not very viscous. Overall it's a nice, non-traditional belgian Christmas beer.

Very low spicing, caramel notes and biscuity malts make this like a caramel cookie. Hot as it warms.
