mixamatt (427) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 21, 2005
Yeasty malty spicy earthy aroma. Chestnut appearance with full beige head. Prickley carbonation. Dry fruitcake caramel flavor with a touch of bitterness that sweetens and gets creamy as it mellows.

Silvan7 (967) - Samarate, ITALY - JAN 9, 2016
On tap @ Campiglio. Ramata carica limpida. Schiuma beige fine e persistente. Aroma intenso speziato di zenzero e coriandolo, caramello, lievito belga, crosta di pane. Lievissimo aroma erbaceo. Gusto dolce amabile, lievemente tostato, caramellato, zucchero di canna frutta candita. Amaro solo da tostatura. Equilibrata, rotonda, piena. Poco corposa, calda non molto carbonata. Armonica ed equilibrata

cheap (4888) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 5, 2015
Looks like its vintage 2013. Wired champagne bottle but no way can this resemble champagne. Brownish darker ale. Sweeter mild aroma. Taste is malty alky bomb. Old aged lager feel to this one. Spices are not overwhelming but it is quite medicinal in the feel. Yes, now I think I feel a little dizzy about the whole situation. Would be rude if not for the aroma or the alky content. Nice package though.

Tognetta (532) - Campinas, BRAZIL - AUG 26, 2015
Avermelhada, espuma bege de média formação e persistência. Aroma caramelizado, adocicado intenso, toffe, leve amadeirado. Paladar transparece o malte, intenso, adocicado, sem amargor. Álcool perceptível, aveludada, corpo médio, sem carbonatação. Aftertaste persistente, adocicado. Em geral boa, bem ao estilo belga.

Bule (1525) - California, USA - APR 10, 2015
750ml bottle pours a reddy brown color with a bit of head. Mild spice that overpowers the rest of the beer.

Cnesta (39) - grand prairie, Texas, USA - MAR 9, 2015
I think I may have gotten a bad bottle. It had a metallic taste. Color was great but appeared to have truub floating...a lot. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Oscbert (1194) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 29, 2015
Strong malty aroma, caramel, raisin, and chocolate with bread and prune. Light clove and nutmeg Pours a murky amberish brown with small wispy head. Big Co2 bubbles visible More spice in flavor than aroma. Lots of malt as well, bread, caramel and raisin Medium bodied with medium high co2. Sweet and dry finish Enjoyable beer. Well balanced, not overly complex. Would go good with a hearty meal ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PapaSkeetSkeet (1005) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - JAN 9, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 10, 2015 On draught at English Cellar Alehouse. Cloudy light brown. Head was completely gone by the time it reached me. Aroma is spiced raisin bread. Light caramel. Flavor of caramelized banana, light apple and cherry juice. Hint of bread crust. Watery-syrupy body with light soft carbonation. A decent Noel with more of a soft/reserved flavor profile and a smack of banana.

Bebum (610) - - JAN 9, 2015
Light copper, slightly hazy. Mid-full body, well flavored, alcoholic heat and taste, silky texture, good length. Bitter, not too dry. Pleasant and rich, not as many flavors as I hoped for. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thisis12ptfont (1055) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - JAN 6, 2015
Nice malty aroma dark fruits, molasses, sugared caramel, Belgian candi sugar and Belgian yeast. Appears a dark brown with tons of head. Taste is nice with notes of sugary raisin overtones, molasses, plums, prune juice, caramel, subtle toffee and Belgian candi sugar. Finishes sweet with a nice dark fruit sweetness. Overall, Nice balance but not anything spectacular. A- rating.
