Not very special. Does'nt really taste of anything. Easy to drink. Lacks power and alcohol.

Dark amber colour with a small bubbles, brownish head. Bitter yeast and alocoholic aroma. The flavour starts bittery and ends bitter. A very long-lasting bitter aftertaste.

on tap - Deep ruby red in color - nearly brown. Mild, whispy head that covered the top like lace. Mild aroma - caramel malts and some sugars. Immediate sensation upon tasting is the very fine, sand-like carbonation - almost like Champange that way it dances around in your mouth. Allowing it to warm for a second I started to notice some caramel and raisin flavor from the malts and sugars. Finish was mildly hoppy, very crisp and drinkable. I liked it better than many other of the Xmas belgians because it wasn't overspiced - subtle and very good.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Clear deep caramel brown, big white head. Nose bready and yeasty, bit of sugars. Flavor is, to steal a like from DaSilky, it oddly lagerish, dry and hoppy at the end. Bit of sugary sweetness and fruitiness, maybe a bit of chocolate, but it's harsh, somewhat astringent, and maybe a bit sour. Doesn't taste necessarily skunked, just tastes boring and uninspired. Just not good.

draught: Bleeding bronze color, thin sheet of froth climbing the sides of the glass and random displays of different sized air bubbles...aroma was spicy, with maybe a little medley of coriander, cloves, and cinnamon but touches of what i detect as lager yeastiness...tastes a little lagery too..not sure why..bready malts, metallic tones..very bready, almost pumperknickle-ish..definite belgian yeast tones come through too...interesting...
