TheCrowsNest (76) - Redondo Beach, California, USA - NOV 30, 2012
Muddy brown with a healthy beige head. Aromas of caramel, apples, chocolate, tart cherries, great complexity. There’s a light touch of anise hidden in flavors of cherries and plums. Medium body with good carbonation. Classic Belgian Christmas ale. Roughly translates to "Cuvée Rulles Best Wishes."

ruigo (1246) - PORTUGAL - DEC 17, 2014
75cl bottle. Cloudy brown colour with a generous tan head. Spices, ginger, liquorice, fruits, caramel and chocolate in the aroma. Average carbonation and medium body. Taste is more on the bitter side with some fruity notes and dry finish. Overall, a very good beer for these long winter nights.

BrunoSanchez (140) - Fermo, ITALY - DEC 10, 2014
Birra oscura stile strong belgian con scarsa schiuma. Al naso note caramellate e fruttate (frutti di bosco). In bocca corpo strutturato e bilanciatura dolce che contrasta con il tenore alcolico. Sapore fruttato e speziato con tanta dolcezza di caramello e fiori. Comunque non molto complessa di sapori ed un po stomaccante. Finale dolce ed alcolico.

TheFoamhead (80) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 8, 2014
The taste is a delicious mixture of licorice and coffe notes, combined with a heavy alcohol taste and an oily dru finish that lasts - no; sticks! A nice, full bodies christmas ale that tastes stronger than it finally is.

solidfunk (4478) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - NOV 11, 2014
Some raisin and a little nutmeg or something like that here. Pours opaque maroon with good head and lacing. Finishes with some sweetness and a zing of citrus. Light florals. Tap at pizzeria paradiso Dupont.

exeter (358) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 15, 2014
Pours a dark colour that light breaks through the edges. I’ll start from the end, because the after-taste is like red wine. The taste is about varnish and overripe fruits. It’s just too much of shit that we wouldn’t eat.
