4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Corked & Caged 750 ml Bottle. Appearance is a cloudy dark ruby and copper color with lots of tan foam and thick lacing. Aroma has notes of Belgian yeast, plums, raisins, toffee and toasted malts. The taste starts with a significant amount of caramel malt, figs and brown sugar followed by a blend of yeast, currants, vanilla and holiday spices. The body is silky smooth and creamy with medium-level carbonation and a dry, alcohol warming finish. As with all their offerings, it’s a rich, lively and festive brew.

For me this beer was like their Tripel but maltier and with less alcohol. It has a medium low body, spicy, orange, coriander, etc. I thought this was an excellent beer, but it is just ok, will drink it again, maybe I had a bad batch?

Dark brown. Cloudy. Yeast bits at bottom. Tastes like a malty Duvel. High carb - slowly gushed from bottle. Dark fruit / pruney. Tasted better as it warmed up. Aroma was amazing when warmer too (obviously...).

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma frutado, notas de caramelo e cravo. Sabor levemente adocicado com toques amargos e algo de banana. Aparência caramelo escuro, sem nenhum resquício no paladar além da beleza dessa garrafa. No geral, sem palavras.

Beautiful pour into the glass with a nice color. Brown sugar, date and figs on the nose. Nice head w/excellent lacing on the glass. The lighter mouthfeel contradicts the heavier aromas but in a very pleasant way. Nice finish and an excellent beer.
