Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - NOV 13, 2005
í03 bottle. Dark brown with a decent sized light tan head. Aroma of spice an pepper to go along with raisens. Taste is stiff pretty fresh with apricot, mango, pear, green apple and caramel. Starting to lose some of its luster and the alcohol is maked pretty nicely. Body is medium to full with a stickiness.

I was a little disappointed with this beer. Kind of a sour aroma and and a bad aftertaste. I wonít buy this one again

KnutAlbert (6110) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 8, 2005
Clear amber clour, surprisingly light for 10% A very good Belgian ale, while not very Christmassy?

Skinnyviking (7069) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 6, 2005
Dark orange, lang lasting white head, sour, long aftertaste. Maybe served too warm.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - OCT 23, 2005
Bottle. Pours a cloudy deep orange-red with a few black floaties and a thin, but retentive, whitish head. The aroma is orange zest, clove, some malt, and other spices. There is a caramel sweet maltiness up front, with a quick hit of the alcohol close behind. There are a lot of autumnal spices detectable, and the finish is largely clove and maybe cinnamon. This is definitely good for drinking in the cold around a fire.

NachlamSie (2770) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 23, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2005 bottle. I definitely had to revisit this beer while the season is still here. pours a very cloudy dark orange with a sturdy white head and plenty of floaties. The aroma is of peaches, dry citrus, and a little sweet malt. The flavor is nicely complex, some cloves, nutmeg, a little honey. It’s very spicy and warming. Perfectly appropriate for the winter season. Not much alcohol burn for the %. This is moderately aggressive., certainly not too bad.

johndoughty (3994) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2005
Spicey and very christmas like. Strong alcohol presence and traces of fruit and a lot of other things. Not to be gulped-drinky slowly and enjoy.

Terminus (3249) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - AUG 11, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2006 Keith-Typical Delirium taste for the most part. Stong aroma, but nothing special. Typical christmas additives like fig, nutmeg, and spice. Tasty and worth a try. Eric-Man, i had a friend bring a bottle from 2001 over the other night-what a treat! pours deep mahogony amber with a very light sudsy white head. much less carbonation than i was expecting. aroma of vineous cherries, light dusty esters, light funk, candy sugar, dark belgian malts0lots of dark fruit here! Wow! flavors of sugar coated cherries, big belgian malts and some nice brown spices. This aged so nicely. not any oxidized flavors, just a more round feel to it all. Alcohol is much lighter than when fresh. Man, this is a treat!
