Ins Glas ergießt sich ein minimal trübes rötlichbraunes Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch sehr röstmalzig süß, Karamell, alkoholisch, belgische Hefe. Geschmack sehr malzig alkoholisch, fruchtig, würzig

Maakun (319) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 1, 2014
Bottle little past b.b. date. Very dark brown with medium sized tan head, some big bubbles and big lacing. Very strong aroma of peach flavored candy. Syrupy malty sweetness, milk chocolate, vanilla, some spices, strawberries and strong liquorice. Thick bodied, average carbonation with creamy texture. Very fruity and sweet, but I quite like it.

330ml bottle from Appellation Wines, Dalry. Clear chestnut brown pour, thin white head. Aromas of herbs and liquorice, some dark sugar. Definitely Christmassy. Taste has a sweet spice thing going on. Surprisingly light in body and thin in texture. OK.

Plum aroma, roasted malt, touch of cocoa. Lovely red fruit flavors, cherry, caramel malt, sour finish. Very enjoyable Belgian bocq with a nice fruity character to pair with your xmas cake.

Douberd (1690) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - DEC 27, 2013
Stubby bottle, 330 ml, as Gauloise Christmas. Into a trappist glass. ABV 8.1% Brown red colour on the body, with one finger of brownish head on top, with good retention. Light lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel, roasted malts, light nuts. Taste of light roasted malts, toasted malts, caramel, light toffee, sugar, some spices on the finish. Medium body, good carbonation, very dry palate. Overall quite good, in spite of the high alcohol goes down smoothly.
