Zeer lekker typisch winterbier. Donker, redelijk hoog alcohol percentagde en vol van smaak. Perfect om in ardeense sfeer van te genieten.

Fashawn (168) - Montesarchio, ITALY - SEP 19, 2014
Veramente una buona birra per il birrificio d’achouffe che non delude nemmeno in questa specialità natalizia. Birra pesante, dura, pastosa in bocca dopo il bel colore marrone scuro, quasi nero. Il sapore è di liquirizia e caffè, con l’alcool ben nascosto.

slowrunner77 (6019) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 18, 2014
"From notes: Dark, cloudy appearance, big frothy head. Slightly overarbonated but swirling is enough to help. Flavor of belgian yeast, candi sugar, orange (dig the citrus aspects here). Aroma much the same. Enjoyable brew."

Travlr (12975) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Limited Edition 2007. Dark red ruby brown with a scant white head. Candy aroma with faint caramel. Medium effervescent mouth. Malty flavor with spices. Very complex, my favorite Christmas ale during a 9-beer tasting of various Belgian Christmas ales.

GothGargoyle (1364) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 16, 2014
Clear light brown with an off-white head. Aroma is Belgian candy sugar, honey, dates, brown sugar, coriander. Full bodied, sweet on the palate with a hint of spiciness on the finish. Taste is Belgian candy sugar, Belgian yeast, dark fruits

TheCametron (1863) - CZECH REPUBLIC - AUG 14, 2014
Bottle. Pours Mahogany with an off White head. Thick treacly sweetness with spices and a bit of wood. I think the spice does a good job of counterbalancing the sweet. A bit of pruney dry fruits. It’s got a lot going on but it’s probably my least favourite of the range.

Een donker bier met een hele uitgesproken smaak. Ik vond het absoluut mijn ding niet.

Nice malt aroma. Dark brown colour with excellent head. Light malt flavour with smooth warm finish. Heavy body with low to medium carbonation.
