77ships (5403) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - DEC 18, 2012
75 cl. bottle sampled @ 18th Christmasbeer festival in Essen. Lighter black / brown, light ruby shade, mocha bubbles. Smell is light, sweet liquorice, cough syrup, lightly mineral. Taste is sweet mocha, sticky chocolate, cream & creamy, liquorice, herbal, bitter mineral, burned coffee in the back & light booze. Sticky but less full than usual body. Not the top but certainly solid & enjoyable.

15/XII/12 - bottle @ Kerstbierenfestival (Essen) - BB: n/a (2012-1357) Thanks to the Belgian/Dutch ratebeer crew for sharing our beers!

Clear red ruby to purple beer, small creamy beige head, pretty stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: sweet, caramel, alcohol, sugar, red fruits, bit woody, hint of red wine, dried fruits. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: very sugary, sweet, caramel, mocha, chocolate, candy, lots of alcohol. Aftertaste: chocolate, bitter touch, lots of alcohol. Not too bad though!

Even if it’s a dark strong ale it is a fiest for both the eye and the mouth - you have to taste it

Bottle sample @ 18de Kerstbierfestival, Essen 2012. Brune foncée, mousse moka laissant un léger filament huileux doré au verre. Arôme est assez fleuri et houblonné; citronné et agrumes, le tout étant bien alterné par un bouquet généreux de malts. Palais est malté, pain d’épices tirant fortement sur le torréfié et café et en fin de bouche une certaine fraîcheur houblonnée et une pointe de réglisse.

Deep dark brown poor, nice off white brown head. Over all this is a syrupy sweet beverage that reminded me of cough syrup.Did not really enjoy at all.
