2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled. Dark brown appearance. Huge creamy, white head. Very sweet and finish is very yeasty. I like the normal Draak more, (or more correctly, it displeases me less). Lacks some of the classic Christmas spices.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled (BB 09/2008)
Nut brown, small creamy head. Fruity, plums in the nose. Suprisingly light, doesn’t show much alcohol. Fruity, yeasty, balanced but lacks a good malt character. Some sugars in the finish. Not very Christmasy and down from regular Gulden Draak.

I don’t know if I have got a bad bottle. Aroma was a bit sour and unpleasent and same goes for the flavor. Looks fine, dark and with a big head.
