jefcon (1612) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - DEC 13, 2008
Rich brown in color with a controlled brown head and some lacing. Great toffee, caramel, spice and bready aromas from the glass. Aggressive, spiced flavors and bright alcohol. One of the best winter seasonals.

Gypsy19 (726) - California, USA - DEC 10, 2008
A very good Belgian quasi-abbey ale. Indeed there is a lot of berry and other dark fruits present both in aroma and in flavor, along with maple, brown sugar, and some citrus way in the background. The carbonation was a little more than necessary. Overall it’s delicious.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 10, 2008
Dark red-brown colored with little light brown head. Spices and licorice dominate this aroma with some berry sourness, mild alcohol also here. Medium to full bodied. Flavor has also strong licorice with sour berries, mild alcohol also here. Aftertaste lasts with dry yeast and licorice still. Slight disappointment.

DocHop (278) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 9, 2008
Pours a dark rusty copper with a huge tan head. High carbonation and a great aroma of Belgian yeast, light cocoa and oak, along with some dark fruits and spices. Almost chocolaty sweetness at first that turns into an overripe fruit flavor ending with a slightly hoppy, dry finish. I think the flavor is a little dominated by the finish but overall it’s a very full bodied beer with a lot of good flavor. No taste of the 10% ABV.

stankenk (130) - Maplewood, Minnesota, USA - DEC 6, 2008
2007 Edition. Pours dark brown with a thick off white head. Has a nose of yeast, fruit notes, and a touch of chocolate. Comes across the palate a tad on the overly carbonated side. Flavors of plums, yeast, and light spices, while the alcohol stays in the background. It has a mild finish, that doesnt linger too long. Overall a decent brew, quite balanced for a winter warmer I tend to think spicier.

AgentSteve (1647) - SF Bay Area, California, USA - DEC 6, 2008
Pours deep brown with some red on the highlights and a whisp of a tan head that lingers. The nose is spice, yeast, caramel, dried fruit and molasses, as is the flavor. Smooth on the palate and clean finish.

Hard to believe I had not tried this one before. From a 2007 bottle sampled in late 2008. The body was dark coppery brown with a light yellowish khaki head. The smell is herbal with some bread and wood. The taste has some herbal thyme and is dry. There is also some wood and orange peels. I was not a fan of this really dry number.
