Very dark brown beer, good cream coloured head. Palate is airy and mildly crisp. Airy dry malt cream. Spice. Tangy dark fruits underneath. Spicy bubblegum. Finishes semi dry with a spicy linger. Fine.

Smaller bottle. Brown opaque pour with a thick frothy off white head. Aroma of spices, Belgian yeast and brown sugar. Medium body, plenty of carbonation with a sticky sweet finish. Wonderful.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark body with a khaki head. The aroma is mostly anise, with some candi sugar, and faint ginger and subdued orange peel. The flavor is much the same, with the anise in the forefront. Abundant lacing, well hidden alcohol, and very "digestible". Too strong on the anise, although I would prefer none at all. Not as good as I had expected.

Bottle as a Christmas present from brother. Nice brownish red pour. Aroma of dried fruits (cherries and prunes). Flavor is too sweet at first, but as you continue drinking flavor becomes more bitter and the flavor of alcohol comes through pretty significantly. Body is relatively light and level of carbonation is medium. I like the St. Bernardus 12 a ton, but as of now, I am unsure of how much I like this beer.

Sweet sugar and a bit of fruit to the aroma. Well, this is certainly a sweet Belgian, without any of the Christmas flavors you’d expect from a non-Belgian Christmas ale. It’s good, but many of these Belgian strongs are starting to taste the same to me.

@Basunen: ganska småtrevlig doft. Smaken är lätt kryddat utan större konstigheter. Fin hetta

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
0,75l bottle. Dark brown color with beige head that left beautifull lacing. Aroma is dark fruits, vinous, raisins and oak barrel. Taste is vinous with some sweetness and adjuncts of vanilla, raisins and dark fruits (mostly plums). Overall it is very tasty, unique and complex beer, I recommend it.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From tap into goblet. Brown with some haze. Creamy head that lasts and lasts. Taste is very of a smooth full body malt that is slightly sweet with a hint of pine/fir and a wispy hint of alcohol. Very very good.

Absolutely delicious and sophisticated taste. Deep dark color with rich foamy head. Very tasty floral and spice notes. A new seasonal favorite!
