nqualls (1452) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 25, 2009
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.

750ml bottle, Bacchus, Ncl. Again, rated after a beer fest session, but this was melow and warming, rich yet far too easy to drink and at 10%, a wee bit dangerous. Served in the correct glass too, which is always a bonus. One to savour and re-rate when I’ve consumed a bit less, I reckon

brenn79 (1549) - Idaho, USA - SEP 29, 2009
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.

DKthe13 (56) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 5, 2009
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.

TrefwoordPunk (816) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JUN 13, 2010
Botlle 75 cl. Pours a dark amber with a medium off-white head and an aroma of ripe fruits, sweet malts and some spices. The taste is sweet too, with hints of malts, plums and other fruits, hops and toffee. Nice beer!

kuphish (381) - Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA - JUL 22, 2010
750ml bottle courtesy of EithCubes. Pours a clear, red-brown body with a fair amount of particulate. Fun holiday spice aroma with yeasty esters and some rich malt. Plum and cherry come through in the flavor with more of the holiday mulling spice. Medium body with effervescent carbonation. Quite tasty and clean overall!
