Editor’s note: Sold as both Corsendonk Christmas Ale and as King’s Blue in Norway.

330ml bottle, several times along the years.
In short: spicy malty dark ale.
Pours dark copper with nice creamy tan head. Long head retention, good lacing. Malty, roasty, liquorice, spicy aromas. Medium body, average carbonation, some crispy texture. Taste is sweet, liquorice, malty, caramel, spicy. Quite well balanced and enjoyable.

El color es caoba intenso, con una cabeza de espuma color crema, bastante espesa. Aroma a malta, a caramelo y a madera. Sabor afrutado, dulce a caramelo, a chocolate, a malta tostados, a madera y a especias cilantro, con un amargo suave que le da un buen equilibrio y un regusto agradable. Muy bien compensada y sabrosa. Pues otra cerveza de Corsendonk muy buena con un aroma intenso. Muy bien hecha

Nice stuff. Comes together great for style. Pours cloudy dark brown with good head and lacing. Some spice, strong florals and perhaps some clove. It’s been too long since I had a Corsendonk beer. Good stuff. Tap at Pizzeria Paradiso Georgetown.
