Tmoney99 (11219) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 16, 2006
Bottle. Pours a hazy deep amber with a large creamy off-white head that lasted. Heavy complex toasted caremel and allspice aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture. Moderate sweet spice flavor with a long finish. Good winter brew.

NoiZe (2324) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - FEB 16, 2006
Very nice fruity and yeasty aroma. Appearance is good too. Overall a very nice balanced brew with nice hints of fruit and a good grainy, malty flavor. Nice enjoyable brew.

I was very taken with this beer. Beautiful in the glass, wonderful smell, and a taste that delivers what it promises. The nose is metallic (not a bad thing), sweet, grainy malt, yeast, and citrus freshness. Not cloying like some Xmas beers. Also some grape and plum notes. The taste is equally complex - nutty, subtly spiced, rich and complex and very easy drinking. I have enormous respect for this brewery.

OlivierMTL (711) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 12, 2006
Bouteille 75 cl, à consommer de préférence avant la fin de 2008, consommé en Janvier 2006. Couleur acajou aux reflets orange-brun. Apparence trouble, semi opaque et envahi de gros dépôts de levure, surmonté d’une bonne quantité de mousse beige pale et perdurant pour l’éternité. Complexes arômes de caramel, de mélasse, de sirop de pêches, de raisins verts, d’écorce d’orange, d’épices et de fruits séchés style prunes, dattes, raisins. Saveurs de caramel, de levure à gâteau, de confiseries à l’orange et d’épices sous une touche de fruits foncés. Finale introduisant un profil grillé de malt et tout en exposant pleinement les délicates épices. L’alcool demeure presque entièrement masqué au fil de chacune des gorgées. Corps d’épaisseur moyenne à pleine abrite une très douce carbonatation aux fines bulles respectueuses. Un chef d’œuvre hivernale ! Bouteille bièropholie, Novembre 2004.

oh6gdx (21061) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 8, 2006
Bottled. Reddish amber colour, small beige head. Aroma is just lovely, richly fruity and pleasant hopping and yeasting. Flavour is sweet toffeeish with some bitterish flowery hops and spices. Pleasant aftertaste of plum, spices and flowery stuff. Extremely complex, and yes, it’s a christmassy beer indeed!!

ABUSEDGOAT (2416) - California, USA - JAN 3, 2006
Cloudy orangish brown body with a moderate head. Aroma is their yeast with some darker fruits and caramel. Flavor is the same, but a little bit much alcohol to my liking. It’s there, but definitely doesn’t ruin it either.

hobgoblin (163) - St-Épiphane, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 30, 2005
Bottle (1 years). clear brown muddy ale with nice tan head. malt, caramel, alcohol and spicy aroma. Taste of malt caramel, spicy finish, well balanced, no carbonation. very nice. thanks to Gonzobeer. Bière de couleur brun assez clair avec des sédiments et un bon collet beige. Odeur de malt, caramel, alcool et épices. Au goût, c’est le malt caramel, avec des épices a la fin, bien équilibré, co2 très bas. merci gonz

sunevdj (3277) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - DEC 25, 2005
Pours a slightly hazy cobber with a tanned head. Smells surprizingly hoppy (for a Belgian stron ale). Sweet with aromas of yeast, and malts, with hints of slightly roasted malts and spices. Creamy body. Bitter hoppy finish.
