4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
A hazy dark red beer with a fine off-white head. The aroma is sweet with notes of nutmeg and cloves - a really lovely aroma. The flavor is sweet with notes of nutmeg, cloves, yeast, oranges, wood, roasted bread, caramel and corriander. A great flavor that is rounded off by a light bitterness. The palate is good - and it warms very nicely.

Corked bottle, 2006-12-11, 8-4-8-4-16=40
Hazy amber color. Nice aroma, perfumy, malty, a bit fruity. Soft and mellow taste, with some good malt, a dash of fresh fruitness, some toffee; the bitterness is not very high, but on the end there is a touch of sweet liquorice root.
Draught at Den Tatoverede Enke, Copenhagen; 2006-11-27; vintage 2005, 8-4-8-4-16=40
Cloudy amber color. Malty aroma, a bit fruity, sweet caramel, candy like. Good body, quite malty, with a lot of sweet and fruity caramel, and a rather complex mix. Peculiar, very interesting.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 33cl. (trade with Storm)(pre-RBNAG-07) Pours a golden body with lots of small floaties and intense carbonation. Beige, medium-sized head. Typical Belgian strong ale aroma, spiced and fruity, with some notes of black tea. The fruityness is mostly of the tropical kind. Nice, sweetish, spice and fruity flavor, finishing fruity and spiced, and lasting for a long time. Full body. A lovely beer, not my kind of Christmas beer, but I sure like it. (071102)
