langeveld12 (303) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 3, 2014
Head is average, off-white and frothy. Body is dark reddish brown, sparkles are visible. Aroma contains quite some malts (mainly roasted and sweet), spices, lime, sweet dried fruits like dateand some forest fruits. Flavor is light acidic and then massively sweet to finish in light bitter. Body is full with syrupy texture and soft carbonation. Too sweet, too bad.

Alengrin (3670) - BELGIUM - AUG 2, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2014 Christmas beer also tasted as Régal Christmas and even as La Gauloise X-Mas, with thinnish, creamy, off-white foam and very dark wine-red colour, clear. Aroma of cloves, aniseed, kahlua, dates, gingerbread, orange peel, brown sugar, coriander; taste round and fully sweet, chocolatey, candied fruit, quite sharp carbonation for this style, resinous, smooth mouthfeel, thick maltiness (caramel, nuts, chocolate), finishing lightly roasted bitterish, bit of liqueurish alcohol, sweetness also lingers. Not a bad attempt at all, but quite stereotypical.

Icedwarf (916) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - JUN 22, 2014
Donker bruin bier met schuim. Smaak is zoet en kruidig, caramel en chocolade. Heerlijk bier als je van zoet bier houdt. Blijft helaas niet al te lang hangen.

adster (549) - HUNGARY - JUN 22, 2014
Egészen mély, rubinvörös színéhez édeskés, cukorkás-süteményes illat társul enyhe füstös aromával, mely karakterek tökéletesen érvényesülnek mustos jellegű ízében is, némi komlós utóízzel megtámogatva. Fajsúlyos darab.
