RnH: Extreme Winter: Way too many Strongs by this point in the night... this brew held its own for sure. Really nice representation of the style, and a few stand out qualities... the body was very creamy, swept throughout the mouth... a nice hint of cloves came though in the nose and taste as well.

Bottle of 33cl, in a Trappist glass. By the old Ones, what an awfull beer with an awfull taste of chemical... We’re in front of a not so nice Christmas beer, with a light aroma and nice appearance, but a very awfull taste, and a light, soft palate.

250ml bottle served in a Trappist glass. A: Pours a dark amber to brown color forming a big creamy beige head. Medium retention and many lacings left. Quite clear S: Delicious bready and fruity smell. Brown sugar, caramel malts, Belgian yeasts, dark fruits. Strong notes of dry plums and dry raisins S: Like the nose, brown bread, dark dry fruits, brown sugar, Belgian yeasts and licorice. Upfront is very sweet candy sugar. Yeasts are quite earthy. End is mild bitter M: Creamy heavy molasses body. Reasonable carbonation. Light hoppy and bready aftertaste. Warm alcohol O: Authentic Belgian ale. Well done. Very tasty and drinkable [ BA Review @ 4/4/2012 ]

mzaar (1691) - Varberg, SWEDEN - OCT 4, 2014
Flaska från SB (december 2013). Rödbrun vätska med medelstort lätt smutsat vitt skum. Nöt, frukt, malt och karamell i doften. Alkoholen gömmer sig väl i smaken. Mjuk munkänsla. Medelsötma, liten beska. Smakinslag av vanilj, nöt, karamell, dadlar och citrus. Nu är det (snart) jul igen.

"figured i better get this winter ale drunk before it gets too warm. unique malt quality and feel, like the pater, but with a touch more body and the presence of some nice spices as well. dark, fruity, hint of ginger? a touch of hops and a little dry yeast in the finish. maybe the new standard for belgian christmas."
