3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Strong winter warmer with thick, beige, regular, stable head and very dark burgundy colour with ruby hue, hazy. Strong aroma of chocolate, banana, pear, plum, melon, coffee, walnuts, port wine, liqueur, cinnamon, liquorice, brown sugar. Rich and full maltiness, sweet, fruity, very chocolatey with medium carbo and well-rounded, mild, coffee powder-like roasted bitterness, as well as aromatic hops in the finish and warming alcohol not becoming astringent in any way. Very tasty and beefy, typical Scotch-style Belgian Christmas ale, honest and satisfying. I liked this very much.
