330 ml bottle. Pours dark brown, red hues at the edges, small white head. Sweet malt nose with a nice spiciness to it. A very well-balanced dubbel, with the right mix of spice, caramel, sweetness and Belgian yeast. Overall Iím real impressed with this, the caramel malts and subtle dark fruit was real prominent in the finish and the aftertaste. Really solid and tasty.

Pours hazy and deep amber with a large tan head with good lacing. Aroma of yeast, caramel, spice and berries. Sweet flavour that ends up more dry and with some alcohol. Medium to full bodied, oily text. and average carb. An excellent x-mas brew.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
I REALLY enjoyed this beer. It has very nice aromas of dark fruit, brown sugar and doughy cookies. Flavors are more of the same but is balanced nicely by the spices and yeast. Pours a dark orange/ruby color with a frothy off-white head that leaves some lacing. Full-bodied and the alcohol definitely makes its presence known but is not overpowering and gives just enough warmth and bite on the finish. A big beer that is very well done.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle Courtesy of CheeseMan. With the passing of Walt, this was the only thing I had in my cellar that he hadnít rated, or that I thought he would like (since he liked the regular one), so it seemed an apropos toast. Pours copper with a good sized head, lively carbonation, and some floaties at the end. Huge Christmas cookie aroma, with candied fruits and malt. Sweet flavor, brown sugar and dark fruit, with enough yeasty and peppery character to stop on the right side of cloying. Big time alcohol, but the finish is warm and velvety, a fine nightcap and a fine tip of the glass to fellow short guy with a big heart.....Sir Walt.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Ale invernale scura ed impenetrabile con un bel cappello di schiuma beige. Aroma nocciolato, maltato, fruttato e liquoroso; il gusto Ť un complesso equilibrio di uvetta, scorze díarancia, malti abbrustoliti e cioccolato amaro. Liquorosa e corposa, líalcool si sente ma non Ť spiacevole, líeffervescenza Ť ridotta. Una birra piuttosto difficile da caratterizzare, offre sensazioni differenti dopo ciascun sorso. Questa versione Premium (provata un paio di giorni dopo la versione base) offre un briciolo di complessitŗ in piý, aromi speziati e "caldi" emergono con piý facilitŗ.
