Pours a slightly cloudy amber with a tan colored head. Nice head retention that leaves thick gobs of lacing.

Lovely candied fruit scent. Notes of prunes, cinnamon, orange peel, candy, brown sugar, fruity yeast, and shortbread. Absolutely fantastic scent reminiscent of Christmas and all it's cookies and cakes.

Flavor is nearly as complex with a slight sweetness of fruit and candy. Definite notes of orange peel and cinnamon and allspice. Finishes warm and slightly sweet. Mouthfeel is full and lively, but not too spritzy. Very good beer and recommended.

Pours orangey amber with a large head.
Nose shows spicy phenols and noble hops along with a doughy yeast note and some apple esters. Also a fair whack of malt with caramel and confectionery notes.
Sweet malty flavours, again with a big confectionery character. Some noble hops remain along with a hit of booze. A little cloying.

***2011 Vintage***

Thanks to hoppypocket for this one.

Poured from an 11.2 oz bottle, best before 26-12-2017.

Foams a bit out of the bottle, pours a ruddy, leather brown body. Tight foam that's decent. Smell is Belgian candi, taste has much the same but has cinnamon more prominent. Carbonation is lively, good stuff overall.
