From cervezas especiales. In Teku glass. Mounting kids presents the night of the Magic Kings. 2014 edition. Small sourness that slightly ruins what could be a superb brew. In any case, its still enjoyable

Head thick and creamy beige in color, medium and fine bubble, persistent. On the surface beer in the middle of the glass creates a nice foamy mound.
The aroma of clove, there are floral notes, plums, smoked negligible (?).
The taste is not as interesting as the smell. She has been dominated bitterness, strong, surging characteristic of grapefruit. Somewhere in the background hidden behind the bitterness sadly loom plums and cloves along with other spices. Alcohol skillfully hidden. In conclusion, it seems that the X-Mas Zinnebier is only bitterness, this beer all attributes that were in the bouquet, were not so much hidden as it killed a pity. It's definitely not enough.

Very dark color. Big head. Caramely smell. Burned caramel taste, though it seems relatively dry. Tasty but not amazing.

On-tap at the Foundry, Northampton, MA.

A- Somewhat hazy chestnut brown with a preposterous light tan head to four fingers in a tulip. Great retention and massive piles of lace after each sip.

S- Toasty brown grains and spicy Belgian yeast. Lacking strength overall as I stress to find anything beyond the general theme.

T- Packs more punch at this juncture. Spicy yeast is the vehicle while raisin, dried fig, cherry, toasted nuts, grapes and deep amber candi sugar ride along. Tobacco and a roast hint of cocoa powder really round it out and add depth. Moderately sweet.

MF- Falls on the taste buds with a body towards the lighter side. Carbonation sort of low to medium and the texture is fizzy foamy. Light dark bitters.

Darker than most of the XMAS brews I have had in the past but certainly a welcome thing here. Drinks like a Belgian Brown rather than the Belgian Pale style it is listed as.
