BlackHaddock (3892) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2013
15th Dec 2012 at The Essen Christmas Beer Festival. I wonder if I shared a bottle with any of the other raters, as it seems the only people to have rated it so far were at the same festival as me! Poured a dark reddy brown with a thin beige head. Sweet nose and taste: caramel to the fore with candid fruit notes as back-up. There is also a yeast feel to the whole brew: came across a little ’green’ and not quiet ready to drink, but I drank it anyway. A mild bitterness arrived towards the end of each sip and although it wasn’t one of the best beers I sampled that day I actually enjoyed it more than some others.

77ships (4135) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - DEC 21, 2012
75 cl. bottle sample @ 18th Christmasbeer festival in Essen. Apparently whilst they are currently still contract brewing this is one of the 4 current beers of Lochristi brewery. It is their intend to soon start a 10 HL brewery of their own using an intended but never used Piedboeuf demobrewery. Originally they apparently wanted to start a whisky distillery but some family members were into beer & the base of both beverages is not that far apart so they decided to go for both. Pours dark brown reddish with a small white head. Smell is sweet mocha, typical Belgian profile, soy sauce, spices, branches, herbs & dark fruits. Taste is Belgian yeast & overripe dark fruits, mocha, hoppy blended with soy sauce, dark fruits, bitter herbs and some caramel. m/m body. Okay – I wish the best of luck to this new brewery.

Little cloudy brown beer with a red glaer, aery off-white to beige head, little stable, non adhesive. Aroma: caramel, yeast, green banana peel, dried fruits. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: bitter start, mocha, caramel, some dried fruits, pretty hoppy, dry ending.

sebletitje (6761) - Enghien, BELGIUM - DEC 16, 2012
Bottle sample @ 18de Kerstbierfestival, Essen 2012. Cuivrée, col beige. Arôme malté, caramel, et grillé restant léger, note de grains, fruité noirs avec une pointe d’épice et un usage possible de genièvre? Palais est malté tirant vers une pointe de café très moyen et caramel/grillé, fruits noirs, avec ce fini belge assez typique procurant une certaine note aigre-douce en fin de bouche. Belle effervescence, le tout manque de convaincre.
