33cl bottle, served in tulip glass. Poured a dark brown with a huge 4 finger brown head. Aromas of caramel, hops, cinnamon, cloves. Taste continuation of the aroma, very sweet spices and you can taste the Curacao in it as well. Medium body and a bittersweet finish. Overall a very tasty brew for a cold, dark winter night.

A classic winter warmer... Love the Belgian characteristics with the light balance and flavor of thyme and bitter Curacao peel... Overall pound for pound it doesn’t get much better than this.

Bottle thanks to s_hartshorne as a Christmas present, cheers Shane. Dark brown beer with small head that reduces to a oily wisp and perfect ring around the rim. Aroma of dark fruits, molasses and some light spice. Taste is prune juice, some spice, dark toffee and some booze warmth. Easy drinking Christmas sipper with a hit of abv. Very good.

Rated pe 25.12.2015.
.75 bottle. Dark brown, frothy head. Nice, even wonderful, malty, spicy clovy, perhaps some cinnamon, smooth bit dark dry chocolately nose. Med full bodied, silky velvety soft breadyness, soft spices. Some muscot. Really nice, abv totally hidden. A smooth slight spicy ale. Nit a big fan of xmas- like spiced ales, but the execution in this is just so nice..
