3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2007, 750 mL bottle courtesy of Butters at the Barrios Nashville tasting. Poured a muddy brown color with ruby red highlights and a two finger off white head. The aroma was thyme, coriander and a sour note. The flavor was very spicy, with some warming alcohol, and a bit of metal on the tip of the tongue. The palate was average, with a very dry mouthfeel, average carbonation and a medium body.

Bottle. Fruity aroma. Beautiful reddish brown body with large beige head. Flavor is mild, fruity, malt. Finish is somewhat sweet. A pleasant but not overly remarkable beer.

750 bottle-2005 vintage- Very mellow, you don’t taste the 10% alcohol, a very nice spicy flavor. This is a decent Christmas ale, but overall an inferior strong Belgian beer.

Full scaled winter beer with lot’s of alcohol. It feels like the same beer as McChouffe which indicates highly carmaled malt. Many different spices can be smelled and tasted. (koriander, dates, pepper)

Sometimes you have a memory of what you’ve tasted in the past completely different than what you have in your glass. in these cases is not easy to rate. I know this beer is very good ... but not tonight. little aroma, taste too low.

3oz tasting at DBS. Aroma has some alcohol in the nose with caramel notes. Caramel, light/dark fruit, and alcohol in flavor. Nice balance of carbonation and mouthfeel. Very good beer.

3oz tasting from Davis Beer Shoppe. Lighter bodied beer with the dark fruits dominating . Honestly nothing special about it, not very memorable.
