75 cl corked bottle. Served in Leffe chalice. Clear, reddish-brown color. Nice, off-white head. The aroma is beautifully, freshly spiced - very inviting. The taste is pleasantly balanced and nicely spicy. Good drinkability.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - NOV 12, 2004
This poured a deep brown color with reddish highlights and a huge brown, enduring frothy head. The aroma is peppery with dark fruits and other spices. Also alcohol. The taste was more of the same, only with an almost medicinal alcohol taste as well. Very dry finish with a lingering alcohol aftertaste.

rickgordon (3845) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 7, 2004
On draught at The Rover, Göteborg. Aubergine colour, longlasting light-brown head. A wonderful, spicy X-mas Ale with notes of grape, citrus and plum. Full-bodied with a smooth, almost velvetty mouthfeel.

dornoy (701) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 27, 2004
Pale brown head, thick and long-lasting on top of a very dark brown body, this is pretty promising. And the promises are delivered. This beer has character and is remembered. Strong, vigorous, and the aroma is very fragrant. A beer for any memorable event.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 4, 2004
The nose was full of dried grapes, sweet dark fruits, orange, clove and alcohol. A fantastic nose that hits you right away. Smelled totally delightful. The flavor was very complex and this was an extreamly tasty beer however, the flavor didn’t seem to overwhelm me. Flavors of dark fruits, bittersweet chocolate, sugars and sweet cherry candies spoke well.

beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 3, 2004
Tasted a the Pub Italia in Ottawa. Light brown color with a medium white head. Appealing aroma of fruits and spices. Very festive flavor of fruits and spices with a spicy finish, it’s reminiscent of a spice cake. Light to medium body, soft carbonation.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 5, 2004
A color that straddles eggplant and plum, underneath a lovely tan head. Intense aromatics: raisins, plums, port, cinnamon, ginger cloves. A generous buzz on the tongue fueled by a great array of hops,and held up by solid malt base. Overall, one gets a feel of holiday breads, cakes ginger cookies. Very tasty, warming, delicious.
