On the palate this silky smooth ale is predominantly malty, with smoky, spicy and citrusy notes, and a long, lingering finish that is lightly tart and malty.

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

Thanks for another good brew Jordan! This ale had a nice brown body to it with a big foamy Belgian head. The smell was full of dried citrus, caramel and yeast. Flavors were sweet and fruity as well, but with a fresh undertone of toast and brown sugar. A solid drinker at it’s current ABV and I’m glad to have tried it.

Tap @ Brux’l. Very dark with pillowy tan head and lots of lacing. Smells bready and citric and lightly perfumy (may have been a little cold to pick up max aroma). Tastes floral and spiced and coriandery. Balanced, lively, not heavy.

8 ounce bottle. Best by sometime in 2017. It pours a ruddy brown color with a frothy khaki head. The aroma is very sweet with equal parts root beer and Dr. Pepper. Some background notes of raisin bran, malt syrup and baking spices. Not bad. The flavor is also very sweet and soda-pop like with some sugar, malt syrup, cherry cola and some mild spices in the finish. The mouthfeel is ok. Pretty frothy, but medium bodied. Way too sweet throughout the palate to be interesting or enjoyable. Nothing else really wrong with it though. This won’t be a repeat purchase for me.

Pours a dark amber/brown color, hazy, and topped with a fine beige colord head. Malty aroma, caramel presence, a bit of yeasty notes and spices as well. Taste follows what you smell. Sweet start, a bit yeasty and quite malty, some caramel presence. Quite filling, mild bitterness and some alcohol feel. Pretty average for my liking, actually.

This was poured into a corsendonk tulip. The appearance was a dark hazy burnt brown color with a one finger soft white lush foamy head. As it dissipated, light stringy lacing sticks to the glass. The smell starts off with a big apple aroma leading into Belgian sugar sweetness and dark fruits. Light Belgian spices round out the aroma nicely. The taste was mainly sweet with a thorough spicy effect from the Belgian side of the house. There’s no aftertaste nor finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a sessionable to sipping quality about it. Carbonation comes across pretty subdued with a grainy feel surrounding my tongue. Overall, I say this was a pretty good Belgian Strong Dark ale that I would have again. Looking forward to having this again around Christmas.
