[thank you, Tbone]
Pours muddy brown with a big, creamy, off-white/beige head. Aroma is sweet , good toffee and sweet coriander notes. Fine, light mouthfeel. Flavour is good toffee and nice spiciness. Quite nice.

UPDATED: OCT 8, 2008 RBESG08 grand tasting
From my two ratings for a Kerstbok, this was the one where it just said "Kerstbok" so this is probably it. Hazy brownish amber colour, strong sweet malty nose, slightly spicy malty taste. Not the best beer on the tasting.

Shady brown color, tan head. Sweet malty and spicy scent. Spicy, malty, metallic taste. A bit acidic. MEdium to smooth mouthfeel. Spicy aftertaste. Feels like some choriander and pommerance also.

janir (216) - Oulu, FINLAND - MAY 3, 2008
Hazy orange brown color. Lacy, very light brown head. Strong aroma: chokolate malts, cloves, cinnamon and orange peel. Sweet malty flavor has cloves, roasted malts and a bit bitter. Medium-bodied and very smoothly carbonated palate. OK but little bit too spicy, maybe that’s why this is little fusty.

Bov (9810) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - APR 16, 2008
courtesy of oh6gdx - cloudy reddish-brown colour with a firm and persistant beige foam leaving a nice lace; heavily spicy aroma showing strong notes of cloves and cinnamon; herbs and orange; very fine carbonation, sweet and medium to full-bodied, very tart palate and a respectable bitterness; long spicy finish with notes of gingerbread - not bad though a bit chemical

(Bottle 33 cl) Courtesy of tbone_. Slightly hazy, orangey brown with a dense and lasting, beige head. Very spicy aroma of cinnamon and some berries. Medium body with sweetish, spicy accents of cinnamon, berries and....Christmas! Very christmasy indeed. 171207

TET (1761) - FINLAND - DEC 29, 2007
Beautiful beer: dark red-brown colour and dence beige head. In the aroma there is little bitterness, liitle sweetnees, roasted malts and some spicys. Flavour is little bitter, there are some sweetness and spicys. Soft beer with nice carbonation and some biting spicys makes this nice beer. Not earth-shaking beer but I drink this and enjoy.

SaintMatty (5537) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - DEC 28, 2007
33cl bottle, thanks Fatphil-Dark brown with red tinges. Fruity spicy aroma with a hint of raisins. The cinnamon is not particularly evident in the taste of the beer but there is a mild spiciness. Drinkable and another good beer from Proef!

yespr (32344) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - DEC 26, 2007
33 cL bottle. Pours hazy dark brown with a lacing off-white head. Light sweet and fruity aroma. Flavour is mildly spiced, underlying sweetness and a mild yeasty note. Finish holds some nice sweet caramel malt flavour and a bitterness in between.
