33 cL bottle. Pours a clear dark amber colour. Sweet smell of hops. Sweet taste wih malt, fruit and spice notes. Complex taste that gives the impression of drinking a vegetable. Not my kind of beer.

A deep red beer with a fantastic head. The aroma is nice; sweet malty with a hint of sourness. The flvaor is very sweet fruity. It doesn't remind me of Christmas but it is a fine Belgium Ale.

Wonderful red mahogany color, with small sized head. A correct carbonation after 12 years is a surprise. Wonderful aroma, malt, caramel, Madeira oxidisation, light spices. The flavor is still sweet, with good malt and caramel flavor, sweet nutty touch, moderate oxidisation; medium to low bitterness.
The ratio quality to age is very high!
2007-11-20, draught at Den Tatoverede Enke, Copenhagen, 7-5-8-4-16=40
Beautiful red-mahogany color; creamy head. Aroma and flavor are based on the caramel, sweetish, with delicate spices (anis, cinnamon); low bitterness of course, but still pleasant. Sweet! But very good.
2003-01-20, bottle aged 4 years, 10-5-9-4-18=46
Dark color. Wonderful aroma, malty, fruity (raisins, curaçao), rum, some alcohol, infinitely complex.
Sweet, malty, light Madeira character.
Malt squash, just misses some better hop sharpness.
2002-08-15, bottle aged 4 years, 9-5-8-4-18=44
Dark amber colour. Wonderful aroma, strong, malty, candy, light banana, curaçao, light roasted barley, alcohol. Sweet, full body, malty, lightly roasted, oranges, lightly spicy, caramel. Medium palate, the sweetness is not fully balanced by the bitterness.
