Marstonlad (655) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 24, 2015
Bottle from Alko, Helsinki. Pours reddish dark brown with a medium-sized head with quite good retention; small layer of foam stays on top. The aroma contains sweet caramel maltiness and dark, plummy fruitiness with a touch of anise and yeast. Taste is medium sweet, displaying malty, spicy and fruity notes; raisin, caramel, fig and plum appear. Initially the emphasis is on sweet maltiness, later more on spiciness, especially anise; hoppiness stays low from start to finish. Alcohol looms as a warming presence in the background but does not affect the taste. The palate is medium to full bodied, fairly smooth and low in carbonation. Solid malty and spicy strong Belgian all in all.

VincentDamon (425) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 23, 2015
Nouveauté au Québec, disponible à la SAQ. Bière brun foncé avec des reflets rouges, et une mousse généreuse. Nez de sucre brun, de levure typique et d’épices de la brasserie d’Achouffe, avec plus subtiles des notes de fruits rouges, de dattes, de bleuets. En bouche, c’est plus sucré que ses soeurs : les notes de caramel, de sucre, sont en évidence. Équilibrée, sucrée, excellente en fait. Probablement ma préférée de la brasserie. J’aime particulièrement. C’est bien sucré, parfait pour les Fêtes. 10 % d’alcool dangereusement cachés. Deux pouces dans les airs. Cheers!

wolffish (441) - Saint-Donat, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 20, 2015
Ouf, elle cache bien son alcool celle-là! Je perçois du sucre brun, du chocolat, de la vanille et des fruits rouges vers la fin... Le mélange levures/épices me laisserait imaginer une bière allemande à l’aveugle. La cannelle et la muscade demeurent vraiment longtemps en bouche après dégustation.

alteregoo (562) - POLAND - DEC 20, 2015
Piana gruba, sycząca i szybko opadająca do kożuszka. Barwa ciemno czerwona, wpadająca w mocną herbatę z hibiskusa, klarowna. Aromat słodki, karmelowy, czuć suszone owoce, keks, skórkę pomarańczową, ciemne winogrona i zioła. W smaku podobnie, słodycz kandyzowanych owoców, suszonych gruszek, śliwek, na finiszu rodzynki namoczone spirytusie i pikantne przyprawy. Goryczka nieduża, migdałowa. Nagazowanie średnie, bogate i treściwe, ale nie gęste czy wyklejające w odczuciu, alkohol wyraźny, nieco za wysoki. To piwo świąteczne przynajmniej ma jakieś punkty styczne z Bożym Narodzeniem - dodatek curacao, tymianku i estry budzą skojarzenia z wigilijnym makowcem, kompotem z suszu czy makiełkami... Nie do końca udało się jednak ukryć wysoki alkohol.
