3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Aroma of dark dried fruit, figs, bread, Belgian yeast, and initially a hint of cheese. Pours a beautiful clear dark amber with a quickly dissipating white head. The taste is overeall sweet. Rich red pitted fruit, malts, and a nice bready flavor. The finish has a welcomed hint of alcohol burn, but overall the alcohol is well hidden. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Overall, while I think of a "winter seasonal" beer as having more spices, this was a very pleasing beer that I enjoyed and would drink again.

33cl bottle, poured into a matching long stemmed tulip glass. A Xmas gift from my eldest son. Dark reddish brown colour with a thick tan coloured head. Strong sweet smell of caramel, stewed dark fruits, sugar, and Belgian yeast. Full body and light carbonation. Sweet caramel and molasses on tasting, fruit and spices (which taste a little artificial). Sticky sweet and bitter finish.

Beautiful dark warm red beer, clear with a big white head and lots of bubbles.Smell is bitter sweet with subtle alcohol astringency, fruity. Apples, cherries, caramel, peaches. Hint of pepper, vanilla. Slightly metallic. Taste is bitter and astringent, a little too much so. Dry finish, crisp and sticky, with lots of raisin. Misses some sweetness to balance it out.

12oz into a chalice. Pours a hazy amber with a finger of foamy white head. Nose of dark fruit, caramel, a bit of banana? Slight sweetness. Kind of medium-light in the body department.. Not really boozy, not really a whole lot of anything.

Color marrone scuro. Buona birra, molto profumata: alcol, frutta sotto spirito e frutti rossi. Al palato, purtroppo l’alcol è eccessivamente presente.

Draught at Delirium. Sweet malt with a strawberry edge, raisin, marmalade, bit of candy, kind of sweet boozy finish. Decent brew, even though I kind of expected some spicy kick somehow for the style.
