Subtle aroma of spice and malt. Surprisingly bland and nondeScript when compared to the other offerings from Huyghe. One expects a spice bomb, but perhaps this warrants another tasting. Tried at the Bruges bierfest in 2012 with Jess and Dave.

Icedwarf (926) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - NOV 22, 2015
Donkerbruin tot zwart bier met schuim. Smaak is erg krachtig alcohol, licht zoet met sporen van bessen en citrus. Is minder zoet en gekruid dan de standaard kerstbieren. Etiket is inmiddels iets gewijzigd.

kingaugusta (41) - Georgia, USA - NOV 20, 2015
Pours copper-brown with a foamy tan head. Nose is very belgian and yeasty with some brown sugar, apple, and just a hint of spice. Flavor is malty on the front with a lot of carbonation, fades to a bit more yeast and earthy notes on the back. Alcohol is well hidden. Well-made but not as good as I had hoped.

DonKromann (30) - DENMARK - NOV 12, 2015
From tap. Pours clear golden. The aroma strikes me with apples and cloves. The taste is sweet and spicy. Apple sweetness, and cinnamon and clove spice. The alcohol volume is not that present in the taste, and might strike one unexpectedly. Nice and aromatic in flavour.
