3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
With a sweat a spicy aroma this Belgian winter ale exudes all the features of a Christmas classic. It poors dark brown with a large white frofy head. It has a medium bitter taste with a sweet finish. From the aroma you would expect alot more flavor but it goes down nicely and easily. Enjoy!

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Birratrovo, Como
Very dark brown color, with giant head. There is a nice Belgian aroma, spicy, light milk and light caramel. The body is thinner than expected, there is some caramel flavor, with a very light fruity touch from the fermentation, and medium to low bitterness; some final oxidisation too.
The aroma was the best part of it.

Sip : medium body, oily texture, decent carbonation. Sweet with dominating tart and dried fruits, very spicy and getting a bit dry and spicy on the end. Not bad. Bitter hops are there on the aftertaste but donít play any important role.
