(Bouteille obtenue via Benjamin Kadlecik) Le liquide a une couleur brune marécageuse. Un mince anneau de mousse flotte sur la concoction. Au nez, le malt caramélisé permet à du gingembre et du girofle de s’affirmer avec délicatesse. Des esters fruités se forment et tourbillonnent au fil des gorgées. Le goût est doux, touché par un caramel qui se transforme allégrement en toffee avec des pointes de fruits foncés et, bien sûr, avec des épices mélangées. En bouche, le liquide semble se diriger vers la minceur avec une effervescence modérément faible et une texture à la limite huileuse. La finale se fait sur des notes maltées et épicées qui réveillent, dans leur assourdissante présence, une amertume bien endormie.

Bottle. Rating number 2011. The only time in my life when my rating will be the same as the year. Pours dark brown with off white head. Nose of Christmas spice, nutmeg, cinnamon, gingerbread and brown sugar. Taste is malty, muted Christmas spices, cinnamon and nutmeg.

probstblueribbon (3053) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 8, 2011
600 ml bottle from LCBO, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Very deep copper with a nice orange-tan head. Aroma: Playful esters, lots of fruits, a bit of alcohol, spices, a nice, playful fruitcake, caramel and brown sugar, warm spices and a decent hit of ginger, some bright, tangy fruitiness, pretty nice for the style. Palate: Medium body with fairly lively but rounded effervescence. Flav.: Similar to the nose, but a bit darker and more severe, the warm spices and ginger come on a little stronger, nice malt profile with some dark dried fruits, brown sugar and burnt sugar, pretty good for the style and a bit harsher than the nose; off-dry with a little bitterness and a decent malty, spicy finish.

As far as spiced beers go, this one is decent.

Spab (2559) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 6, 2011
600 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours an opaque reddish/orangeish brown with small tan head. Aroma is quite spicy with ginger and clove and a bit of toffee. Taste is also strong on the ginger and clove with more subtle toffee and fruit notes. Lingering spiciness in the somewhat warm finish. Good.

after4ever (6251) - Brier, Washington, USA - FEB 5, 2011
500. Pours an opaque dark brown with a gorgeous dense, billowing light tan head. Plenty of dotty lace. Big Christmassy nose--lots of cinnamon and cardamom showing, almost pie-like. Creamy medium body, watery in spots, carb is too low. Spicy, caramelly, brown-bread-y, molasses-y mid-palate. Long dry pie spice finish. A pleasant, easy drinking winter/holiday beer that’s a little too comfortable on the sweet side of the spice rack.

Pours hazy deep red. Thin head. I get cranberry, dates, bread. Maybe raisin. Definitely ginger. There are cloves in it but I don’t get them so much. Bit of sharpness from the rye and the alcohol. Nice sipper.

Rasmus40 (11729) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - FEB 4, 2011
Hazy red brown with a lasting off-white head. Aroma is malty, dried fruit and very spicy. Flavor is rather sweet. Dry finish and a soft mouthfeel. Too spicy. 201110

Zenwolf (268) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 4, 2011
Decent, but not one of the best spice/herb brew I’ve had. Very approachable for the style with full, but muted spices. I described it as a Darker Leffe Brune clove, banana, cinnamon and nutmeg. Yes it is very "Christmas" but that was so December.. I liked this one, but can’t rate it any higher.

Eructoblaster (3103) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 3, 2011
Bottle - 600ml. Pours a dark brown body with ruby glints and an average off-white frothy head. Good malty/hoppy aroma with ginger, spicy, and fruity hints. taste is well balanced and hides the alcohol pretty well. Ends with a decent, warming bittersweet finish.
