3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a fairly clear ruby - lightly estery nose, with sweet notes of candi sugar, raisin, toffee - fairly full carbonation in the mouth - a little tart and acidic up front, with some wheaty character and toasted graininess - the toasted character lingers as a sweetness develops through the middle, bringing a somewhat chewy toffee character - lingering sweetness in the finish - not terribly complex, but fairly smooth and slightly warming/spicy on the end.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tallahassee, Fl - Publix Super Market - 12 oz bottle. Dark amber pour, tight, off white head that dissipates pretty quickly. Sweet, sugary aroma with hints of Christmas spices. Flavor has some toffee notes, some candied sugar, a back end of caramel and just a hint of Christmas spices. Mouthfeel is a bit lacking, thickness does not match the flavor. Overall, decent though.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Candied Belgian ale aroma with some vanilla and dust. Good embossed bottle, decent label, clear medium walnut brown with a ringing white head. Appearance knock for the twistoff. Toasted, slightly sweet, nice malting, a good ale twang. Medium body, sort of a brown ale finish. Pretty drinkable. Publix.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tasted on tap at Old Chicago’s in Aurora, Colorado. Cherry wood appearance. Aroma smells like a typical sweet Belgian ale with candy sugar. Nutty brown flavor is more dominant than the Belgian ale taste. Body is pretty thin and actually tastes pretty flat. Below average beer.
