ShivanDragon (1441) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - FEB 19, 2014
sample, caramel bruin bier, troebel met minimale witte kraag. Met een enorm kruidig en bovendien onaangenaam aroma. Redelijk zware zoetigheid en enorme kruidigheid (kardemom) overheersen het bier, nee dit is gewoon téveel. niet lekker

corkyrory66 (530) - BELGIUM - FEB 11, 2014
Bière spéciale de Noël à 8 % abv. Couleur brun roux profond. Clarté nette. Bulles moyennes pas très nombreuses. Mousse beige qui nappe. Arômes de cerise confite, noyau de cerise, kirsch, malt caramel, candi, myrtille. 1ère bouche soyeuse sur du café à la turque, cerises noires, blé noir. Arrière-bouche sur des épices. 2ème nez d’herbes aromatiques. 2ème bouche sur du porto, de la grappa, de l’anis étoilé. 3ème bouche sur des herbes et des cerises, avec une pointe de Suze. Arrière-bouche bien spéciale, herbacée plutôt qu’épicée. La longueur présente trop de parfums disparates, non assemblés et surtout déséquilibrés. La levure est forte, dense, fruitée. L’alcool est bien dosé, progressif, beau. La finale donne des nuances de noix de cajou, violette, confiserie noire à l’anis. Conclusion : assurément une bière spéciale, on aurait tendance à dire « trop » spéciale... Les saveurs partent dans tous les sens, sans grand lien, et plutôt pour le fun que pour faire une bonnne bière...

holdleder (167) - Kongerslev, DENMARK - JAN 11, 2014
75 cl. champagne-flaske. Fantastisk lækker mørk juleøl, med sødme og de rigtige julekrydderier. Vældig god.

33 cl. bottle sampled @ Kerstbierfestival Essen 2013. Dark brown with a tanned head. Vinous nose, sweet malts, touch red berries, sweet herbs. Taste is sweet berries, sticky caramel malts, touch herbal, red grapes, faintly vinous. Thicker malt body. Not a bad brew.

bdunhill (243) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 15, 2013
Everything the the Ecaussines Blonde isn’t is made up by the Brune. With trite but Christmas aroma made up of caramel and spices, this Belgian Brune pours dark brown with a big frothy head. It has a malty taste that leaves you licking your lips and a lingering palate that warms you from the inside! This is the reason people love Christmas so much.
