2008 Bottle. Aroma of fruits and alcohol. Hazy amber body with thin head, lacing body. Flavor is filled with fruit and citrus with a hint of hops and malts... slightly tart with a dry finish... a nice warming power and very enjoyable

the theme of this brewed belgium product seems very festive and taste in that way as well. Brewed with 5 types of spices it is simply amazing!

Bottle 0,75. Coz za swietne piwo. Wyglad przepiekny, wielka i bardzo, bardzo trwala piana. Kolor czerwono bursztynowy. Swietny swiateczny aromat. A wiec mamy tu gozdziki, curacao, skorke pomaranczy, laske wanilli i przyprawy inne, trudne do zidentyfikowania. Smak tresciwy, sosnowy, runo lesne, powidla ciasteczka korzenne. Alkohol ukryty doskonale, super piwo na zimowe wieczory. Doskonale rozgrzewa. Jest metnawe ale delikatnie. Swietna etykieta idealnie pasujaca do pory serwowania tego piwa.

Tap at Blind Tiger. Deep dark reddish garnet colour, creamy white head. The aroma is awesome. Loaded with rich toasted plums, toffee and rich sweet stone fruit. Very spicy and sweet with lots of clove, orange, dark burnt sugar, brown sugar and even a bit of vanilla and chocolate. So complex and so inviting. The palate is very soft and wheaty wit a silken quality that just lets the brew coat the tongue in silken deliciousness. Sweet dates, toasted sugar and lots of mintiness on the back. This stuff is really tasty. Warming lets the caramelly and plummy malts really come into harmony with the spicy yeast. Lightly peppery on the back. Man, I love this brewery.

An interesting aroma of fruit and caramel. Hints of spice. Pours a brown haze with a slight reddish tint. The beer is lively. Very good taste, complex but well balanced. A creamy bitter beer with hints of fruit and caramel. Everything just works well together with this beer.

Het is een sterk bruin bier, gekruid met tijm en curaçao en met een lichte hopsmaak; een evenwichtig bier
