4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Limited Edition 2008 - From the big bottle, this brew poured murky amber color with plenty of n’ice beige foam, lasting for days. The aroma is boozy and fruity, with apricots and definite herbaceous and bready notes. The flavor is intense and complex. It’s got all the sweet Belgian yeastiness you could want, with a bit of toffee as it warms and some sweet/sour fruit peeking through, maybe like a dark grape(?) I would say it’s got a medium finish with nice caramel and malt prevailing there. Has a very soft mouthfeel with well moderated carbonation. This is everything a Belgian should be! N’Ice work! (couldn’t help myself)

Pours translucent dark brown with red notes. Nose is spicy, herbal, with Belgian candy sugar, yeast, cream. Flavor is initially allspice and thyme, quite sweet, with a rather biting peppery yeast note. Strong alcohol note. Creamy mouthfeel. Heavy bodied. Pretty good stuff.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours an orange-hued murky brown with a rocky head that fades to a thin cap, leaving minimal lacing. The aroma is fruity and herbal, with some notes of oxidation and wild-smelling yeast. Candy sugar us also present in the aroma. The flavour displays a perfect balance of hops and candy malts in an easily quaffable strong ale. The flavours present include mint, orange peel, peppery spice, grahm cracker, and berry, with a dry, clean, perfectly bitter hop finish. Nice soft, yet tingly carbonation and velvety mouthfeel.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from bottles, barely any head, not lively at all, dark amber brown, yeasty aroma...subtle hint of fruit. Very smooth, 10% well hidden. This is definitely making my Christmastime beer list.
