If I could give this beer an 11 I would. It’s perfect. Sorry I’m not so good at explaining what I like and don’t like. But I love Belgian beer and this one is now at the top of my list.

Nice light strong dark Christmas ale with quite little nose but a nice mouthfilling feel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pyrmir (3532) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - DEC 14, 2012
330 ml bottle. Pours nearly black with a full beige head. Aroma of coffee, dark chocolate, dark sugars and roasted malt. Taste rich and well balanced, Dark malts and sugars, not a lot of bitterness. Very pleasant.

beerbaaron (1337) - Arizona, USA - DEC 13, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 25, 2012 Black, small to medium tan head. Chocolate, some coffee, dark fruit. Spices are subtle. Full body. Excellent balance and finish. Yet to have a Mikkeller beer I wasnt impressed with.

MarinEvelyn (585) - Wisconsin, USA - DEC 13, 2012
chocolate, coffee, wine, woody scent. dark brown almost black color. Initial sweet chocolate taste, a bit too bitter for me. Wasn’t expecting it to be bitter. Other than that, pretty good.

Bov (9755) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - DEC 12, 2012
from Erzbierschof - black beer with a rather poor beige foam left; aroma of black chocolate with some coriander on top of it; pretty sweet; full-bodied; a light earthy tartness, residual sweetness with hints of candi sugar and chocolate; some lingering sharpness - not really convincing

jbruner (2477) - Athens, Georgia, USA - DEC 12, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 13, 2012 Bottle shared with rbrazell, thanks! Pours a thick brownish-black from the bomber with thin tan head and light lacing. Aroma of red wine and chocolate. Taste is dark chocolate, bitter hops, spices that remind you of christmas, with a dry, ashy, chcolatey finish. Booze catches up as a burn in your stomach. Good stuff.

rbrazell (1702) - Florida, USA - DEC 12, 2012
Deep brown pour with a small tan head. Chocolate, salt, ash notes of coffee and figs on the nose with bits of wood and vanilla. Chocolate covered raisins on front of the tongue with Belgian yeast, spices with hints of coffee. Medium bodied with hints of booze and a quick finish. Not bad.
