best find : rich hop taste with long finish & very strong aftertaste (no sugary taste afterwards). A real gem.

Japalo (1225) - DENMARK - APR 14, 2014
Bottle@home after spring garden workout with tobak. Huge foam. Brown haze. Spicy. Dark fruit. Sweetness hides the alcohol very well. A bite more complexity needed. More malt than added sucker.

ogivlado (5791) - Zagreb, CROATIA - FEB 21, 2014
Bottled 750ml. -from Svijet Piva Zagreb. Amber coloured with red glare, medium sized off-white head that went away fast, slight yeasty and alcoholic nose. Sweet malty, fruity, spicy and warming alcohol with touch of metal and caramel in the finish. Pleasant one.

Note: well, ageing this beer for 3 years in my cellar was a good idea! :-)

Taste: caramel, hop bitterness, citrus, bit fruity, dried fruits, vanilla notes, cookie dough. Aftertaste: bitter hops, alcohol, bit sugary, caramel, citrus touch, dried fruits and some banana.

sebletitje (6800) - 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 légèrement 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 très belge dans l’approche avec une bière rivalisant avec les grosses productions trappiste voire abbaye. Complexe et nettement plus savoureuse que de souvenir.

emartell (248) - 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 (9018) - 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 (612) - 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.
