4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Belmont Station. Colour...deep, cloudy amber with a massively thick ecru head. Nose...redolent of brown sugar syrup, medjool date paste and crushed figs. Palate....quite frothy and rather sweet, with notes of dark fruits, turbinado and figgy pudding. There’s an ever present date and prune flavour, and plenty of Christmas cake. The finish is long and cloying.

Chocolaty smell and taste. Rather strong carbonation with a sweet oily chocolate taste. A bit overrated, but a very nice beer.

330cc Bottle. Brown coloured with white non persistent head. Smels chocolate and fruit. Taste is "Trappist" but medium weight. One of my favourites because I am a fan of the stile and usually prefer the medium weights instead of the heavy weights. Outstanding beer.

Aroma: Cherry, raisins, spices, alcohol. App: brown with white head. Taste and Palate: full body, medium to high sweetness combined with a fruity taste with light dry finish bitterness. Lively carbonation. Appearance is not so good, palate is a tad too sweet. A good beer to finish your evening with.
