This Christmas beer is black with a very creamy, nice and lasting head. the aroma and flavour has notes of chocolate, dark fruit, plum, licorice and the flavour has both slight sweetness and bitterness. A very nice beer that makes think of a stout but also of a Belgian abbey beer. I like this one. 1716

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle.Very dark, almost black colour with a steady, medium tan head. Nice fruity malt aroma, lots of chocolate, some yeastiness. Roasted malts flavours, some burning alcohol, unfortunately the hop bitterness is on the harsh side. Overall quite sweet. Starts promising, but has still some way to go to excellence.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
(on bottle)Dark red/brown, steady beige head. Complex aroma of brumbles and fig, along wih strokes of an old tobaccofuniture. Very nive. Allmoste watery, easy drinkable one could say, a bit weak on the alcohol here. The fine carbonation helps the fruity notes to a plesent , allmost port-dry finish giving this saison(?) a few more strings to pla with.
