resin and dark fruit aromas from a dark bronze body with no head, tastes like yeasty old doughnuts covered in brown sugar.

ZodiacM (870) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 26, 2014
Een heerlijk vol donkerbruin bier, zwaar, fris en zoet met een lichtbittere afdronk. Geur van mout en gedroogd fruit. Lekker!

sheatripper (863) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - NOV 25, 2007
750 ml. "2006" bottle which unfortunately gushed upon opening. Dark brown pour with a quickly fading beige head. Bready and cakey malt aroma with nutmeg, cinnamon, vanilla and a bit of chocolate. Some yeast and alcohol wafting up now and then. Flavor of spiced cake, with an underlying raisiny tanginess at first, which settles into a warming caramel character with notes of vanilla, candied peel, baking spices and a touch of pepper at the end. Pretty good Xmas brew. Cool painted bottle.

Dacrza (862) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - DEC 29, 2015
DATE TASTED: December 29, 2015... GLASSWARE: Chimay goblet...OCCASION: basking in the afterglow of The Force Awakens with a beer that has some force of its own... APPEARANCE: dark ruby brown body that reveals none of its contents... the thick, creamy brown head resembles the head of mousse, with thick bubbles wreathing the glass...a thick shade follows its crest... AROMA: ginger, anise, pepper, and vanilla roil in the citrus and pear... small hits of toasted malts work their way in--raisin and currants lastly ... PALATE: creamy, active at the throat, and long-lasting in its finish--one that coats and resounds... shockingly sippable and worth holding in the mouth, with a pleasant, almost softened cola consistency... TASTE: a light grape, vinous sauvignon , with mellow anise, malt, and dry hops that suggest orange and earthy roots...figs and dates, yes sir... slightly sour, with some fermentation making the experience a bit more complex... ...OVERALL: in a run of great strong beers--see Southern Tier’s 2xmas and Corsendonk’s Christmas Ale--Nice more than holds its own, it owns...as drinkable a weighty beer as one finds, with complexity and enjoyability coupling easily... had this a long time ago, then on a St Patty’s Day crawl in State College on tap--and the search was over at The Hop and Vine....one bottle, and one is feeling good...

ttutony (851) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 16, 2012
Hazy dark brown brown in the glass with a thin white head. Fruity aroma especially an orange note, also some vanilla and other spice. Smooth, rich mouthfeel. Nutty malt and dried fruits on the palate.

Hanoi (849) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2013
Nose is belgian yeast, bread, spice, cloves, pepper, dust slight orange. Taste is slight dark fruits, leading to malt, to well balanced cloves, spice and orange with a very strong pear and bread finish. Mouthfeel is suitable but the alcohol is a little to prominent for me. A lovely example of the style, though the alcohol is a bit too powerful in the finish.

Kosmokrator (849) - ITALY - JAN 23, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 16, 2015 Color mogano leggermente nebuloso con un soffice velo di schiuma beige poco persistente. Aroma nocciolato, speziato e caramellato; gusto dolciastro con note di toffee, zucchero abbrustolito, lievito e un finale più amarognolo e debolmente luppolato. Corpo medio-lieve, abv poco percepibile, effervescenza vivace (anche troppo), discretamente bilanciata. Una buona birra invernale che necessiterebbe di un pizzico di intensità in più.

Bière brune assez foncée, rouge-orangée à la lumière, moyennement voilée, effervescence élevée, et surmontée d’un col brunâtre assez large, bien dense, mousseux et persistant. Arômes principalement sucrés et fruités, caramel, cassonade, cola, avec un évident raisin rouge, tendance cerise noir et prune. Aussi, effluves de levure belge typique, quelques esters fruités (banane, poire…), et un peu de phénols épicés (surtout du poivre…). On note quelques autres épices au nez (piment de la Jamaïque, muscade…) et un petit houblon qui semble principalement herbacé (gazon, herbes aromatiques, feuille verte…). Nez agréable, très belle complexité, intensité moyenne. En bouche, pétillement assez élevé sur la langue, breuvage mousseux, onctuosité moyenne au palais. Au goût, sucre brun (caramel, cassonade, cola…), fruits foncés (raisin, cerise, prune…), levure belge plus présente en bouche qu’au nez, esters fruités (surtout de le poire…), saveur de pomme assez présente, beaucoup d’épices en bouche (clou de girofle, poivre, piment de la Jamaïque, muscade…), alcool évident quoique tout de même bien intégré. Bière laissant une impression très chaleureuse en bouche due aux saveurs épicées et alcoolisées, houblon plutôt subtil, à peine un petit goût herbacé et aromatique lors d’une finale principalement épicée et alcoolisée. Bon goût, complexité très intéressante, intensité significativement plus élevée en bouche par rapport au nez. Bière fort chaleureusement qui atteint pleinement son objectif de «bière d’hiver» quoique je l’aurais peut-être préféré un peu moins agressive sur le plan de l’alcool. Très bonne bière!
