UPDATED: DEC 7, 2008 scura schiuma media color cappuccino sentori fruttati e floreali in bocca morbida tendente al dolce ma non stucchevole aroma di arancio amaro si lascia bere facilmente nonostante i suoi dieci grqadi invecchiata un anno risulta piů secca

750 ML Bottle-Dark Brown color w/a slight tan head. Sweet spicy aroma. Flavors were that of a classic dark belgian w/traces of molasis, cane sugar, toffee, & dark fruit, but it also had a floral hop presence & traces of yeast & spice. This was a good winter warming beer on a chilly night w/a cigar. Somewhat complex w/a long spicy finish.

A nice beer to sip on a chilly winter night. Complex spicy flavors expected in a Christmas brew mixed with lots of citrus candy sweetness.

On tap at Het Waterhuis aan de Bierkant 07-12-07 Poured very dark brown with a tan head. Quite sweet and intially very heavy tasting brew, I really liked this beer but found that it could be a tad tiring after a while, nice sticky fruits, very warming, and excellent for the winter.

UPDATED: MAR 29, 2009 This is the beer for winter! Full bodied and creamy, dark red-brown colored one with some delicious sediment in the body, a creamy tan head. Fruity and fine spicy-herbal thyme in the aroma, toasted grains. Complex body, fruity flavor with the herbal thyma again.

"06 bottle. Pours mahogany with a small bubbly tan head. Pleasant, although light, aroma of orange zest, a bit of raisin, just a hint of alcohol, and an earthy/spicy overtone. Flavor is much richer and maltier than expected. A bit of creamy milk chocolate right up front that leads into raisin and candied plum notes, as well as just a hint of blackberries. Just enough earthy spices throughout, and a very nice undertone of orange juice/zest and dark candy sugar make a fairly strong appearance towards the finish. Palate is full, creamy, a bit spicy, and just a little alcoholic. Well balanced and unique, kind of reminds me of fantome de noel, only much better.

One of my favorite beers of all time. 750 ml bottle from BevMo Carmel mtn. Pours a very deep chocolate brown, Light lacing. Nose of dried dark fruits, such as plums, raisens.....maybe fig? As the beer sat it picked up more intense flavors of peach, apricot and some hops.

Pours a nice dark chestnut brown with a frothy head with a slight beige tint. Aroma consists of hints of maltiness, spices and thyme with citrus undertones. Very cmplex taste consisting of plum and dark berries, chocolate malt, sugar cane, balanced out by a nice spiciness and slightly dry hopped finish. Very tasty.
