Wittales (644) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JAN 28, 2014
Appearance was cloudy reddish brown with lasting tannish creamy 2 finger head, rings of lacing. Aromas are spice of anise, licorice, cinnamon, toffee, roasted barley, no alcohol. Taste are slight licorice, roasted bready malts, hints of yeasty dough, cough syrup. Palate was creamy full CO2 with medium- full body, lasting spicy slick finish. A strange take on a winter brew.

Sigmund (5270) - Tau, NORWAY - JAN 26, 2014
750 ml green bottle, Cardinal’s Christmas beer tasting. ABV is 7.3%. Brown colour, large beige head. Lovely malty aroma, with typical notes of Belgian ale yeast, brown kandij sugar, caramel, dark dried fruits and mild spices. The flavour is rich and malty, with the same elements as the aroma, and moderate hops in the finish. Very good.

ABT_S54 (177) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2014
75cl bottle shared in a Delirium Noel glass. Pours a wonderful dark brown, clear liquid with a moderate head. Carbonation is good and mouthfeel for a (relatively) low alcohol Belgian is exceptional. Aroma and flavour is unlike anything I have previously tried. A very flavoursome beverage which makes you want to keep trying it to pick out all the flavours. Quite a warming drink packed full of fruity, toffeelike notes. Excellent.

Bontus (638) - Flanders, BELGIUM - JAN 14, 2014
75cl bottle, thanks Stijn. Pours chestnut hell red / brown. Lacy beige head. Nose of candi sugar, cara malts and something resin like / pine wood & needles. Aroma of dark chocolate malts, but carried by a gentle carbonation, silky mouthfeel. Almost creamy. Taste is sweet to bitter. Finishes with some alcohol warmth. If spiced, it’s subtle. A very accessible Christmas ale for the spice prone drinker.

Palme (3533) - Bergen, NORWAY - JAN 3, 2014
0.75l bottle shared with The Tasting Crew. It has a nice medium sized dense almost creamy looking head on top of a clear deep dark ruby red warm body. Looks quite good in the glass. Not to extreme on the nose. I get a nice little malty sweetness with a faint fruitiness touch and a hint of yeast. Quite mellow and mild. It feels light oily in the mouth and the carbonation level is small and prickling on the tongue. Soft watery coffee essence flavored and other than that I have to say that this was surprisingly neutral in the taste. Sugary sweet and light malty, other than that this was quite a neutral tasting (and dare I say a bit boring?) one. 18.12.2013

Moravius (569) - Berlin, GERMANY - DEC 27, 2013
Flasche vom Bierzwerg-Online-Biershop. - Dunkles Rotbraun. Volles, dunkles Malz, leicht herb und nicht süß. Brotkruste, Pflaume und eine deutlich hervortretende, eigenartige Note wie von Moos. Pikante Säure. Im Abgang kräftige Röstmalzbittere, krautiger Hopfen und wieder der leicht kühlende Effekt der moosigen Aromen. - Ungewöhnliches, mutiges Weihnachtsbier aber gewöhnungsbedürftig.

Bottiglia a casa. Schima abbondante rosata. Colore mogano fluida. Aroma intenso di malto arrostito che copre tutto il resto. Gusto non molto intenso leggera astringenza e finale anche troppo amaro. Corpo pieno ma amaro troppo eccessivo.
