aspetto decisamente invitante..bel colore scuro/rossastro con schiuma pannosa..aroma molto speziato: liquirizia,frutta matura,alcool,poche note luppolate..gusto decisamente insufficiente per i miei gusti..la liquirizia (come la versione christmas) è troppo troppo forte risultando sbilanciata sia nel gusto troppo dolce e speziato che nel retrogusto che è effettivamente dolce con leggere punte amarognole..dopo 3 sorsi volevo cambiare birra..

Bottle, poured into a chalice. Appearance- a dark, murky brown, a half-finger solid light brown head which clings to the glass. Looks really good. Aroma- very bready and malty, marzipan, cherry hints, a little bit of port and red wine. Taste- full in the mouth and quite smooth and silky. Rich fruitcake dominates, almonds, cherry, brown sugar, treacle, a clinging, bitter finish. Very, very tasty.

Light & sweet with Xmas fruit cake taste with typical effervescence. A good Belgium beer but not the best I've tasted.

A dark brown tea color, small amount of white head. Smells of pear, caramel yeasty, toffee. Taste is sweet caramel malt, yeasty, pear, toffee, brown sugar, some hop bitter towards the end, and a little alcohol burn, apple. A good Belgian, strong with bold fruity yeasty flavors.

Flasa. Bledo hneda farba. Vona sladka, jemne cukriky. V chuti sladkost, ovocie, trosku karamel. Nie dobre.

Bottle. Aroma toffee, lots of diacetyl. Flawed. Clear brown colour. Taste is sweet, sugary, over-ripe fruits, lots of caramel. At least no diacetyl. Cloying, even into the finish. Grapes. Not my cup of beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml bottle poured in its own glass.
A: Pours a dark amber nutty clear color. Forms a small yellow head. Not many lacings left
S: Smell is very sweet like a Belgian beer should be. Candy sugar, sweet grains. Very fruity easters, dark fruits mainly. Alcohol
T: Follows the nose, a sweet Belgian style beer. Sweet candy upfront, sweet malts. Very bready. Mild earthy bitterness
M: Heavy creamy molasses body. Medium to low carbonation. Sweet candy upfront and mild earthy bitter aftertaste
O: Very drinkable. A little bit overwhelming alcohol in the nose but still a great beer
