In bottle .. very nice chistmas ale. Spicy with citrus and berry notes ... a little malty and creamy at the finish. Very good though still like the St. Bernardus christmas ale better ...

Tangy Christmas ale. Little bit of a bite to it, not a smooth ale. Nice double bock style for Christmas Day. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours hazy medium-dark brown with a small lasting ultra-foamy micro CO2 head, lots of thick lacing, several moderate-speed streams. Nose: initial reaction - burnt toast?!/charcoal, malts, molasses. (6/10)-aromatic strength. Attack: super-creamy mouthfeel, Mid-palate: alcohol detection, (7/10)-sweetness, (MAIN) malt, turbinado sugar, dark rum (HINT) cola Finish: mild licorice, malty bittersweet fizzy finish. Summary: It has a strange "burntness" up front but is alright once you get used to it. Good character, body, and balance.

Kita (1080) - Koper, SLOVENIA - DEC 24, 2013
Bottled, 0.25l. Pours hazy amber brown with medium frothy light brown head, good lacing and sparkling appearance. Aroma of caramel, yeast, raisins, dates,plums and alcohol. Taste starts sweet malty with sour fruity and yeasty following, warm alcoholic and spicy mouthfeel and mild bitter finish. Full body, thick texture and fizzy carbonation in palate. Typical Belgian strong ale...

8.5% bottle from Ohtsuki shared at Christmas Tasting. A reddish brown ale with a beige head. Woodsy, malty, sweet. The taste is sweet, maple & some metallic notes. Honestly, I didnít pick up on the metallic quality so much but this was beer 8 or 9 I think at the tasting so we probably didnít give it such a fair shake-the low end of the pack though pretty good. Too young I think, it was bottled in November! I might try it again if I find a year old bottle.
