4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
’08 and ’09 bottles thanks to Masterson for bringing these. Pour a barely hazy deep brown with a faint hint of red. Nice tan collar. Almost ne head. Aroma of caramel and some faint spice. Taste is sweet caramel, tough of dirty funk and that same slight spice. ’09 is slightly sweeter. Really enjoyable aftertaste. Smooth sweet and a tough of grit in the mouthfeel. Low carbonation.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Corked, caged 750 ml. bottle with an expiration date of 17 Aug 2018. Amber-red pour under a lingering tan head. The aroma emits sweet barley malts, coriander, plums, black licorice, and toffee. Low alcohol profile. Smooth, bold body. While there was no alcohol profile in the aroma the sweet Belgian malt and spice character evolves into a mild but warming alcohol burn. A delightful beer.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a bottle. Dark brown almost like a cola colored with a medium off white head. Nice lacing that clings to the glass. Nice aroma of tart, sour fruit. Medium body. Taste is slightly tart and tangy with some mild spices that linger on the tongue and roof of the mouth. Flavor gets better as it warms up a bit. Its OK for a Belgian style ale but the flavors seem a bit underwhelming for a Christmas Beer. It was pretty enjoyable but not as good as I had expected. The spices are not prominent enough for a winter warmer and slightly weaker than other Belgian ales I’ve had.
