3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A nice dark amber color with a big fluffy head. Aroma is plums and brown sugar. Taste is sweet and boozy, but also containing more of the dark fruits and molasses. Still rather light-bodied for the ABV. In short, it’s like a lighter (and much less-developed and less complex) version of Bernardus Abt 12 with the same ABV. Nice Christmas brew.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very dominant body without the oily taste film in the mouth. It is not as creamy and heavy as expected. Spicy but nothing very special.
