Got this as an extra in a trade

a cola brown with a small, thin khaki head. No lacing

S amazing!! Big, vibrant dark fruits, plum, strawberry, black cherry, Cabernet grapes, tropical fruits, light spice, cinnamon, ginger

T a light and fruity beginning, the middle is plum, black cherry, the end is cinnamon spiced apple pie with raisins and ginger. The after taste is short, too short for such a delicious beer. The aftertaste flavor is a fading spice and ginger.

M lightest crisp, almost thin, light carbonation

O amazing. With three years of age on it, it is amazing. I ouwld highly recommend drinking this if you ever find one.

Review from 4/2010 notes. Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a dark brown with a medium head and medium body. Aroma of dark fruit, sweet and lightly toasted malt and Christmas spices. Flavor is sweet malt and spices up front, middle and finish malty with dark fruit and resinous pine hops, a bit sour. Quite different and tasty. A classic and wonderful Christmas ale.
