Bottle, Beer Ritz, Leeds. My 1600th rating, yo ho ho. Deep dark brown pour with a fading yet persistent muddy tan head. Sweet candy nose of dark fruit , xmas cake, and booze. Creamy, slick mouthfeel. Rich boozy and warming .Great festive sipper for sitting next to the christmas tree with the rain lashing against the window. Essence of the season.

TheRealMGD (549) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - DEC 28, 2012
Bottle from Bottlewerks. Dark brown-black, oily pour with a medium, persistent beige head leaving heavy lace. Nose is chocolate covered cherries, chocolate liqueur and a bit of black licorice. Heavy, smooth body with light, very fine carbonation. Chocolate, vanilla, licorice, cherries and a bit of pine hops. While the swallow is sweet, the finish is more balanced, with sweet chocolate and bitter pine hops and some woody umami. A delicious treat for the Holidays.

bnoel09 (410) - Elk Grove, California, USA - DEC 27, 2012
Poured into a tulip glass. Dark cola brown with a thick, dense head of tiny brown bubbles. Aroma is malty and roasty with some chocolate and dark fruit notes as well as some Belgian candi sugar. Flavor is similar to the aroma with a lot of roastiness as well as some dark fruit and some of the Belgian yeast influence, and some piney hops towards the finish. Body is surprisingly light for the bold flavors and alcohol content. Has a slightly sticky mouthfeel and a long roasty/piney finish. This is dangerously drinkable for 11%. Overall this is an awesome beer with an incredible amount of flavor and alcohol that is still fairly light bodied and easy to drink.

RedSox2004 (1137) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - DEC 27, 2012
Black with mahogany highlights, mocha-colored head that retained well and left very nice lace. Aromas of dark fruit , mollasses, caramel and alcohol. Flavors are similar, accentuated the sweetness of the dark fruit and caramel, accompanied by a warming alcohol. Full body, generous carbonation, silky mouthfeel, and a pleasantly warm and sweet finish.
