Pours a clear golden color with a white head that dissipates quickly and some but little lace. Smls of cinnamon and cloves and nutmeg. Tastes citrusy and a bit wheaty while finishing with cinnamon and nutmeg. Excellent beer!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours hazed gold with white head. Aroma is overboard with cinnamon sticks, some cloves and phenolic yeast undertones but mostly cinnamon. Flavors are strong cinnamon sticks, cloves, sweet caramel malts, vanilla, some light tangerines, and maple undertones. Lively feel, perfectly executed. Odd beer that somehow works showing off great finese. Perfect Christmas morning beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
341ml bottle. Bright golden amber color with a splash of thin white foam that vanishes quickly. Peach. Pear and plum in the aroma with a hint of clove. Full in the mouth and holds the alcohol well but there is a little alcohol taste on the palate.

Don’t notice the alcohol in this one but do notice the spices, medium body and only slightly warming, strong and spicy but very drinkable.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
341mL bottle, pours a murky golden orange with a small ring of white head. Nose is full of clove and coriander, with some candied sugar and not really any hint of wheat. Flavour isn’t overly appealing, with lots of perfume and sugary notes, not much of the aforementioned spices. Feels a little flat and dull, with very light carbonation. Way too much of the perfume and sugar, killing any complexity there might have been. Not too good.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 341 ml. Bought at Peluso (Montreal). Served in Trappist glass. Pours cloudy amber. Not much head and no lacing. Similar in appearance to a barley wine. Quite pleasant aroma with strong notes of cinnamon and cloves. Some hints of citrus and alcohol. Taste is really sugary with some bitterness at the end. Alcohol finish. Full bodied beer, really thick. Texture is syrupy. Overall, a very interesting beer, unique in its way.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ only, whoa los of fresh clove and Madagascar cinnamon over a solid swet base of fruit and wheat malt. citrus follows through. Not sure why DDC made this but the clovey-ness evokes a pale weizenbock gone over the edge. Ends a bit grassy-dry with a faint sting to the palate, remains constantly sticky-sweet.
