presario (4901) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 10, 2008
750ml bottle. 2007 edition. Dark brown wiht a nice layer of foam maintained by my Chimay glass. Warm spice and malt aroma, Dubble-like. Hard to taste 10% ABV but you can feel it after half a bottle. You can taste the dark candy-sugar, dark malt and a caramel-molasses touch. Nice spice residue on the tongue.

[1141-20080229] Tap. Mild nothing aroma has a hint of maltiness. Slightly hazy, dark red brown body with a quick foamy off-white head. Flavour is muted but has notes of pencil lead malt. Medium body. Seems plain today.

Bouteille 750ml. De couleur brune-rouge et voilée. Nez malté de sucre brun, moyen de caramel aux notes terreuses et léger de pain, de levures fruitées (raisins, moyen de prunes), léger d’épices (muscade, léger de coriandre, notes de clou de girofle et de cannelle), d’alcool et de houblon herbeux. Moyenne-ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen-fort et une texture plutôt crémeuse. Goût de levures fruitées (raisins sucrés et aux notes vineuses, moyen de prunes, léger de cerises, traces de poires, de bananes, de pommes rouges et d’agrumes) accompagné d’un moyen goût épicé (cannelle, coriandre, léger de muscade, notes de clou de girofle) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût malté de sucre brun, de caramel légèrement rôti et aux notes terreuses ainsi qu’un léger goût de pain ainsi que des traces de chocolat et de sucre bonbon. Parallèlement, l’on retrouve un moyen goût d’alcool doux et réchauffant jusqu’en finale où l’on retrouve également une moyenne amertume provenant de levures épicées (poivre) et de houblon herbeux. Post-goût long-moyen et aux notes sèches, moyennement amer de houblon herbeux, de levures fruitées (moût de raisins et de cerises aux notes aigres, notes de zest d’agrumes), d’alcool moyen-doux avec des notes de rôti.

Ober (2813) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - MAY 18, 2008
A very hazy, ruby/brown colored beer. It has a thick, light beige head. An aroma of raisins, caramel and sweet prunes. The taste has some spices, like pepper, with notes of dark fruits. Very rich taste overall. A warm feeling in your mouth, at the end. A very good beer.

Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 17, 2008
750 ml bottle. Dark reddish mahogany colour. Tall light beige fluffy head that clings to the glass. Crystal clear. High carbonation level. Light raisiny aroma with a hint of candi sugar. Some soapy aromas and the traditional Belgian yeast character. Münchener malt. Medium-bodied. A bit sugary, but there is quite a bit of malt here as well. Balanced. The alcohol can be noticed, but is well hidden. Hints of black pepper and sweet raspberries. Very drinkable given its strength. Nice.

UPDATED: DEC 28, 2008 On tap at The Wellington, Hull, UK, also from bottle. Excellent beer, pours deep dark brown/black with a big tan head. Smell is good belgian yeast, hops, alcohol and spice. Taste is wonderful hops, dark spices, sweet raiseny fruits and a warming lightly alcoholic finish. Even better on tap. Dangerously drinkable, great xmas beer!
