bierbeek (97) - Beek, - JAN 6, 2013
33cl bottle. Deep brown colour, beige head adhesive. Aromas of sweet malts, caramel and brown sugar. Taste is sweet in the beginnig. Some herbs, perhaps some cinnamon. Finish is more bitter with definitely some liquorice. Hevay body. Ok christmas beer, but not a top one in his category

Alengrin (4594) - BELGIUM - SEP 29, 2014
Tasted as Postel Christmas. Abbey beer with warm bronze colour, creamy head and caramelly and spicy character, with impressions of banana, pear, butterscotch, liquorice, cloves, chocolate, white pepper; malty sweet taste, soft, smooth with mild hop bitterishness and warming alcohol in the finish. Like the other Postel beers, this is actually not bad and well balanced, though very mainstream and stereotypical for its style.

(bottled)From old notes from an October trip to Brussels . Probably the best Christmas beer ive had at 5 am in the morning while intoxicated of my ass !!! My notes say in reflection...Rich of course ...a rather creamy unity of caramel and spicy boozy relentlessness in liquid brown format ...A wave of dry texture slowly breezes in to refresh my palate ... Exactly what I would expect from a Belgian Christmas ale ...

Martinus (4537) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - MAY 22, 2012
Clear brown amber colour, beige head. Aroma of sweet malts, caramel, red fruits, canned peach, spice and candy sugar. Sweet malty flavour, caramel and candy sugar. Light bitter hops. Light bitter finish, hops and roasted malts, light lingering spices.
The one I like most of the Postel beers I’ve tasted to date. Certainly nice with a little age on it.
(From 33cL bottle @ Het Brouwershuis, Baarle-Hertog

omhper (23713) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 24, 2010
Bottled (as Postel Christmas, 9.0%) at Pressklubben, Stockholm. Cloudy mahogany colour, rocky head. Toasty vinous nose with figs and dark bread. Sweet and near full bodied with well rounded mouthfeel. Brown sugar on dried figs with some grassy hops atop. Light spicy bitterness with a bit of warming alcohol. A likeble, rather complex and warming beer, where my sampel alrady had matured a little.
