COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Denne belgiske strong ale er uklar og nøddebrun med et luftigt, nøddebrunt skum, der har en lang holdbarhed og giver fine blonder på glasset. Den fyldige og komplekse aroma indeholder søde nuancer af karamel, chokolade, lakrids og kirsebær. Desuden bærer den friske, krydrede toner af anis, hyldeblomst og kakao. Smagen afrundes af en eftersmag med lang sødme. Når der kommer ris a la mande på bordet, kan det være svært at finde en øl, der passer til. Derfor har Ølfabrikken brygget denne belgisk inspirerede juleøl med kirsebærsaft. Original trappistgær gæret ved høj temperatur efterlader en masse aromatiske biprodukter, der sammen med en specialimporteret karamelsirup og kirsebærsaften giver stor kompleksitet i smag og duft. Under kogningen tilsættes lakridsrod, der sammen med syren fra kirsebærrene giver kant til det let humlede øl og dermed balancerer den kraftige maltsødme.

hotstuff (4058) - Indiana, USA - FEB 21, 2014
Rated on 6-30-2010 (Corked bottle) This beer pours a large very fizzy beige head that mostly diminishes, semi-opaque orange brown body, lively, fast rising carbonation, and one ring of lacing. The aroma is malty, cherries, spicy, and alcohol. The taste is caramel malt, alcohol and spicy. The palate has a warming sensation and this beer is medium bodied. This is a sipping beer and is somewhat heavy tasting. It is worth trying and a beer I would drink again.

Nocturne (752) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2012
Swingtop bottle brought back from BarleyWine in Copenhagen. The lady in the shop thought this was about seven years old. It pours out a dark amber and manages to form a head for a few seconds. The aroma is vinous, spirit-like, fruity like port or brandy. Lots of raisins, dates, brown sugar, toffee and peat. Maybe a hint of cardboard creeping through as well. Most of those elements crop up in the taste, but it’s only once I get down to the dregs that sour cherries come out. Quite a slick mouthfeel on this like a vintage barley wine. Has held up nicely!

arminjewell (6100) - Farmington Hills, Michigan, USA - OCT 27, 2011
Pour is hazy reddish with off white head, aroma has notes of cough syrup, some slight slight sour cherry pit, some slight biscuit, toffee, but really a lot of medicinal cherry. Taste is really harsh medicine with some sour cherry, I tasted this and shivers went down my spine and I couldn’t drink any more. Tastes like gross cherry, cough syrup, touch of biscuit, finishes with more cherry.
