A nice winter warmer. Alcohol is present only in noticeable tanginess in flavor. Hints of figs, raisins and prunes.... Nice brown color with sticky beige foam. Aroma hits you smack in the nose (used a tulip) when lifted to the mouth.... With this type if beer being seasonal, I can’t wait for Christmas!

From elcervecero. In Teku glass. After dinner. Surprisingly drinkable for its high ABV. Just the adequate spicy touch. A bit drier than my favourites but great still

Appearance: Cloudy, deep amber brown in color, with a large, dense off-white head, which retains superbly. Thin, glass-coating lacing adorns the glass walls. While I cannot see the carbonation through the haze, masses of fat bubbles decorate the glass walls.

Aroma: Massive aroma of vinous alcohol, sweet caramel, toasted malt, bitter apples , pears, cinnamon, and nutmeg. The alcohol is quite notable in the aroma.

Taste: Opens with a wave of sweet alcohol, dark malt and bitter apples, as the taste progresses, there is a subdued wave of caramel, spices , cinnamon and ginger. Later the taste becomes extremely sweet, mostly from the alcohol. Finishes with sweet alcohol and a bit of herbal hoppiness.

Mouth feel: Smooth, sot, very pleasant.

Drinkability/notes: Very nice, although I wish it were a bit more over-the-top.

Presentation: Packaged in a 750 ml Belgian bomber with a cork and cage, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.

330ml bottle, poured into La Chouffe tulip.

A: Dark ruby, bronzy in colour, looked thick without being opaque, medium slightly tanned head, pretty good head retention.

S: Cherry, molasses.

T: Fig, prune, grape, brown sugar, some cherry which faded before any sourness could kick in, something made me think of mouse. Kept the booze under wraps.

M: Light texture, moderate carbonation.

O: Good beer to accompany a heavy meal on a cold day, does what its supposed to.

Outstanding good Christmas beer for the colder day at the end of the year. Had it from tap which made this beer really enjoyable. Some nice spices which makes this beer very drinkable.
