LeRose (73) - Massachusetts, USA - DEC 25, 2012
Poured a reddish brown with a quick fizzy head that didn’t last. Aroma was Christmas cookie kitchen. Cinnamon, nutmeg, slightly fruity on the nose. Taste seems a bit out Of balance. Spice heavy and needs to be sweeter to balance. Clear cinnamon, nutmeg, hint of clove, gingerbread. Picking up some raisin or prune notes. Drying on the palate, not thick on the mouth feel. Some aftertaste that persists and gingerbread like, some molasses sweetness, flavor of dates, warmth, whisky Better as it warms. It was OK, not a fave.

Marrón rojiza medianamente turbia. Mínima espuma ligeramente tostada que pronto queda en nada. Nuez y especias en el aroma. Whisky y canela en el sabor, envueltos en malta. Calorcito alcohólico. Cuerpo medio y alta carbonatación. Buena cerveza de Navidad, sin estar a la altura de las grandes.

Brown, no head, smells like fresh christmas cookies, and ginger bread. Taste is dominantly spices, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg. There are toasted malt notes hidden in there too, but it’s under all that spice. The spices are balanced, and though obvious, not too annoying for me. Carbonation is low. After taste has a slight warming from the spice, not very boozy at all for 8.6%.

mR_fr0g (6054) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2015
Bottle thanks to Leighton. Aroma is huge cinammon, sweet, Christmas spices, little soapy, Yankee candle. Reddy copper coloured pour with a thin off white head. Flavour is sweet, nutty, caramel malts, Christmas cake, with big Christmas spices, cinnamon, ginger, mint. Flavours have rounded out nicely. Palate is full, sweet, viscous, warming alcohol. The couple years of age have done this bottle pretty well.

Benzai (11028) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - FEB 21, 2015
Bottle @ ZZT XI. Clear amber color, small off-white head. Smell and taste herbs, spices, cinnamon, sweet, lightly caramel, wood. Decent body and carbonation. Compared to the regular version this is way better. It’s drinkable. But it is a herb, spice mostly cinnamon bomb.

(bottle - 22 oz - 2012 vintage) Dark copper pour with a thin white head. Huge spice and caramel aroma. Lots of caramel and a very mild spice in the flavor, and I was pretty sure I could detect some coconut hints in there as well. Big malt bomb with some light spice.
