Bottle thanks to portableparty! Medium brown pour, a little lacing/carbonation and a medicinal alcohol nose. Flavor is medicinal cherry, heavy malt and a little too much alcohol. Ok.

750 ml corked and caged bottle, thanks, Brenn79. Vintage 2012, Bottle #1828 of 3240. Love the fucked up label--Rudolph is hanging outside the window, gutted. Pours cloudy amber with a small quickly-collapsing beige head; leaves a consistent ring of foam. Aroma is pretty faint, but I’m getting fruity esters, bread--smells too sweet for my tastes. Taste isn’t as cloying as the aroma let on, but it is sweet. It’s a little watery, boozy, softly carbonated. Not a big fan of this; it seems a little sloppy.

UPDATED: DEC 25, 2012 750 ml. bottle- Pours very hazy brown to red with a way too thin head that reduces to a small collar. Aroma is candy sweet, malty, spices. The taste is again candy sweet, malty and spices, banana and other fruits are there too. Body is medium, carbonation is medium to almost low. Overall I was let down by this, it seems flawed, Belgian beers are supposed to be higher carbonation, that is the main problem.

Pour out of bottle, big thanks to Aaron for the pour! Bottle number 356 out of 1800, bottle from 2010. Pour is dark orange red with off white head, aroma has notes of dark fruit with raisin, plum, some caramel, toffee, hints of molasses, vanilla, some dark sugars as well. Taste is a nice mix of dark fruit with figs, plums, raisins, hints of caramel and earth notes, finishing fairly dry, slightly boozy, nice finish.
