Spicy, peppery nose; deep ruby color. Quick sweetness up front turns to a spicy, cinnamony middle with a sharp, peppery finish that is dry and chalky. Not as complex as I expected, but great balance. Medium body - not as fat as I thought either. The alcohol was unnoticeable in the flavor profile.

UPDATED: NOV 30, 2003 This beer has a brown body - hue and a fine white scum collar with sweet initial flavor and a heavy body. I have drunk the beer from a bootle so it had a medium carbonic acid. Best christmas beer i have tasted.

Oranges, spices, berries and cinnamon nose. Nice dark amber with a little head. Peppery and fruity. Also hints of marcipan. As the announced thyme as an ingredience and I had fresh thyme right next to me I tried it and ...yes, thyme as the finish taste. I would also say rosemary. Very warm finish. Numbs tongue.

A dark brown beer with a fine light brown head. It has a very powerful sweet fruity aroma. The flavor is also powerful, a little sour, but with a nice sweet malt taste. A really good beer - that I definatly want to try again. The one I had tonight I had bought at the brewery and imported myself.

delacerveza (157) - Florida, USA - DEC 3, 2002
2002 (i know i should’ve stashed it away for next year but just couldn’t) rich chocolate brownie color, spicy-strong alcohol nose. thick creamy ivory head which does the lacey cling thang. pretty vinous and strong for my taste, but it was certainly tasty in a peppered plum sort of way. the label said brewed with thyme and curacao peel which sounded pretty darn cool.

1999 75cl. Dark ruby color with small particles. Thick head with good lace. Huge dark complex nose. Malt, plum, and sugars. The alcohol adds a nice warming touch. Deep, complex taste: chocolate, plums, and raisins. This is worth a look.

A thick head tops this Dark amber brown brew. the slightly sweet and sour malt aroma draws you to drink this sweet and spicy flavored brew. A good winter warmer.
