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.

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 (502) - 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.

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 (1192) - 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.
