sebletitje (6582) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 2, 2014
Bouteille 75cl de et partagée avec Tderoeck. BB 12/2013. Ambrée, col beige léger. Arôme est maté, caramel, fruité noir garde un bouquet légčrement sucré avec pas mal de caramel, note grillé en rétro. Palais est malté avec les 13% de suite présent, caramel et fruité noir entre prune et raisin, date ponctué par un sucre candy. Le tout reste trčs belge dans l’approche avec une bičre rivalisant avec les grosses productions trappiste voire abbaye. Complexe et nettement plus savoureuse que de souvenir.

emartell (232) - Zapopan, Jalisco, MEXICO - DEC 29, 2013
Aroma agradable y sumamente frutal. Notas dulces, en donde se distinguen notas a frutos rojas y almibar. En cuanto a apariencia, color cobre con destellos rojizos, de cuerpo ligero a medio. Carbonatacion y corona de espums baja. En boca, suave, dulce y frutal. Al paladar es una cerveza sabrosa e interesante. Las notas dulces y frutales destacan, sin embargo es una cerveza fácil de beber y no es tan compleja ni alcohólica a pesar de sus 12 grados. En resumen una excelente y savrosa cerveza de temporada.

As Scaldis Noël Premium. Poured into a trappist glass. Mahogany color with a cream colored head that settles but leaves a thin layer. Aroma is quite fruity with some strong apple notes as well as some banana and clove. Flavor is dark fruit with a slight sour/tartness, and some spices towards the finish. The ’bite’ from the sour/tartness mellows as it warms, and the spice notes become more apparent. Medium/Full bodied with a slightly dry finish. Remarkably drinkable for 13%. Overall a nice Christmas ale.

hopdog (8773) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 24, 2013
750ml bottle. Poured an amber color with a larger sized off white head. Aromas of yeast and bananas/fruity. Tastes of the same fruitiness, yeast, and caramel. Alcohol content well hidden and creeps up on you. Extra point for drinking on Christmas Eve wrapping presents ...

mutz (548) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 24, 2013
Grote fles, Premium en toch maar 12 % ? De fles is bijna leeg, hik. Bruinsige kleur, veel koolzuur tijdens het inschenken. Ruikt wat zoetzurig. Smaakt wat naar caramel en zoet snoep. Ik vind het te zoet en weinig diepgang. Ik had er eigenlijk meer van verwacht.

Sötét borostyán színű, sörcsoda, bézs habbal, komplex gyümölcsös aromával, és karamellel, valamint csodálatos malátás-szirupos, gyümölcsös ízzel, amiben a kegyetlen alkoholmennyiség jól megbújik. Szinte tökéletes karácsonyi sör

sayravai (4667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 14, 2013
(Bottled, 0.75l, "Premium", 13% ABV, rated 12/25/2005) Dark reddish amber with a medium, tight head. Aroma of semi-dark malts, toffee, orange-peel and alcohol. Sweetish, toffeeish, quite alcoholic flavor with lots of anise and grainy malt. Medium-bodied, quite alcoholic and sticky palate with low carbonation. This is not a brew to take lightly - but luckily you will figure it out right from the start, as the 13% is not very well hidden. It’s not bad, though, as the maltiness is strong enough. A true Xmas knock-out, if you don’t mind the alcohol. If you do, you’ll find plenty of better alternatives.
