A random purchase at the local store. Nose is light citrus with a winter spiced backbone, some lightly roasted malt, and a sweetness that lingers. Pour is dark brown with a nice head. Taste is similar with a sweet citrus, light roasted malt character, tons of spice, and a yeasty/bready malt presence.

Een donker, bruin bier. Geen bijzondere smaak die aan Kerst doet denken, maar niettemin een lekker bier.

Cool_Bond (1578) - Kung av Öl @ Facebook, SWEDEN - DEC 23, 2014
Spicy, malty with light yeasty smell. The taste is of the letter fruits, bitter with some alcohol. Quite so heavy bitterness in the aftertaste that fills the upper part of the mouth for a long while. Really good beer anyway. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

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.

didierlewallon (146) - ponferrada, SPAIN - DEC 21, 2014
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
