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.

Solid, drinkable Belgian Dubbel alike. Alcohol well hidden- only a bit comes ’"out of" in aroma. Medium to light body. Some sugary notes in flavor. I’m not WOW anymore about every Belgian beer.

Complex beer. Light and dark fruit aspects, some holiday spice. Full bodied but easy to drink. Delicious.

Big bottle with commonmac. Mahogany with medium white head. Sweet spice aroma and boozy aroma. Sweet malt, some spice, clean finish. Good Christmas spice but not overwhelming. Bubble gum sweetness. Alcohol is not as prominent as it could be, which is good. Medium body. Really nice beer. Really nice.

Big boy bottle purchased at Total Wine and Spirits in Roseville. Poured into Belgian snifter glass. Darker hued amber copper color. Aroma has Belgian funk with some dark fruit notes. Alcohol warmth right away. Taste actually does have a piney, holiday feel to it. Dark fruit like prunes or raisins working well with a toffee/caramel backbone. Candied sugar comes through mid consumption. Finish is warming and comfortable like a winter sweater. Very good beer for a special occasion.

thewolf (11728) - Kolding, DENMARK - DEC 25, 2015
Bottle, bought @ Belgianbeerz. Pours deep, chestnuts brown with a small, staying, creamy beige head. Aroma has vinious, caramel, coriander, light oxidation. Low to medium carbonation, fine dry and quite creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has sweet malts, nice toasted caramel, esters, oxidation, vinious and warming. Nice and elegant.

alteregoo (564) - POLAND - DEC 22, 2015
Piana początkowo gruba i mydlana, szybko opada do kilku milimetrów ładnej, drobnej koronki. Barwa miedziana, przypomina herbatę, mętna (pływają drobinki drożdży). Aromat głównie owoców suszonych (gruszki, jabłka, śliwki, daktyle), karmel, miód spadziowy, przyprawy korzenne i likier. Dość płasko... W smaku likierowe, słodkie, winogronowe, jest też w tle niewielka kwaskowość czerwonych owoców. Przypomina ekstremalnie nagazowane Barley Wine. W afterteasie jakiś keks, rodzynki w spirytusie, makowiec i brandy. Goryczka niska, ziołowo migdałowa. Nagazowanie wysokie, szampańskie, mocno musujące w ustach po każdym łyczku. Alkohol wysoki, nie do końca ułożony. Zważywszy na prawie maksymalne noty na ratebeer, ekskluzywną butelkę, limitowana ilość, premium w nazwie i całą otoczkę wokół tego piwa jestem zawiedziony... Wiem, że po 2-3 latach leżakowania byłoby bardziej ułożone i szlachetne, ale ja kupując piwo chcę mieć wybór - wypić od razu bardzo dobre lub po kilkunastu miesiącach rewelacyjne. W tym przypadku spirytusowy alkohol zniekształca całe bogactwo i złożoność trunku w odbiorze...

Ysok02 (623) - MOns, BELGIUM - DEC 20, 2015
Robe ambrée, mousse peu abondante. Nez explosif sur les fruits confits, la vanille. Bouche à l’attaque explosive, de la puissance, du fruit, de l’onctuosité mais une sucrosité un peu trop marquée. Une bière écoeurante, pas du tout mon style.

Calisky (2169) - ALSACE, FRANCE - DEC 20, 2015
Kindly shared by Jaghana. Couleur ambrée sombre, légère mousse. Fort nez caramel cuit, fruits noirs, sucres, bubblegum. Gout malté toasté, caramel cuit, fruité noir, sucre, puis palais avec légères épices (un peu cardamome, canelle), fruits secs, bubblegum et alcool. Pas mal et ronde en bouche malgrés l’alcool. Assez complexe et agréable.
