(Flasche) Es hat eine rotbraune Farbe, ist leicht trüb mit einer hellbraunen Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist süß, brauner Zucker, etwas Rinde, ein klein bisschen Orangenschale und etwas brauner Rum. Der Geschmack ist mittel bis schwer, samtig, malzig-süß, rindig, alkoholisch mit Kellernoten. Bittere ist keine vorhanden.

Sampled in a big bottle. Aged for a few months. A really carbonated brew that has a great flavor and smooth on the palate.

Opaque pour with a white head. Lovely smell that I can’t quite place. Nice alcohol taste with a bit of bitterness. Winter warmer.

Dark amber-brown, fairly minimal beige-coloured head. Sweet, malty aroma, similarly rich in taste, with a hint of burnt maltiness. An excellent, warming brew.

Amber coloured beer with a quickly vanishing head. Aroma of sweet malt and dark fruit. Taste slightly sweet, slightly burned malt and well balanced.

UPDATED: MAY 20, 2014 Couleur sombre-ambree, mousse beige. Super nez de fruits secs, notes d’épices. Bcp de pétillance, gout épicé, un peu aigre, notes d’alcool et chocolat café. Fin de bouche rapide

Suggestion du mois @Maison du Peuple. Bière de Noël devenue classique avant même le rachat par Moortgat. Au nez : houblons aromatiques caramel fruité levure. En bouche, dégustation fort onctueuse, légèrement sirupeuse avec des saveurs de levure de céréales torréfiée et ce fuité typique de la Chouffe. L’amérisation finale est minérale moyennement longue avec une pointe d’acidité et terreuse. Je reste avec ce grain de levure sur la langue qui rend le breuvage vraiment moelleux. Donc sympa..

DandyWolfFloyd (641) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 8, 2014
Aroma is nice, full of alcohol, X-mas associated spices, and a dark fruit. Appearance is a beautiful ruby red, clear, and with a bodacious frothy white head. X-mas spices are present, as is that alcohol intoxication, and some nice dark fruit, perfect balance. Palate is full, with a sticky, lively carbonated experience. The finish is satisfying long, and intoxicating. Whoa! Great beer.
