Tasty, warm, strong. hints of a heated rum raisin, mixed with dark bread. Pleasurable mouthfeel, not to hot on the tongue, sits nice and heavy in the cheeks.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours brown with a red shine. Small head. Aroma of malts and spices. Taste of caramel, malts and spices. High carbonation comes through in the taste while it is not very much noticable in the appearance. Should probably age some more but nice beer already.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance is really beautiful, the color of dark ruby with a big, rocky head. Aroma has strong dark fruitiness, sweet maltiness and spiciness; plum, pear, some caramel. Taste is medium to heavy sweet; maltiness and fruitiness are rich with Belgian yeast adding spicy elements. Hoppiness is mild to moderate, balancing a bit. Dried fruitiness and spices feature most. Spiciness is moderate, not over-the-top. Palate is medium to full bodied, quite smooth despite the carbonation being a bit lively. Nice sweet and attractive Christmas beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap pour - ruddy brown pour with a thin off-white head. Aroma is bold and yeasty...lots of spice, malt, bread, hint of licorice. Flavor is similarly yeasty and bready, slight hint of bittering hops, fruit (dark), anise note, and a good dose of spice...pretty intense stuff. Palate is medium bodied and the alcohol was quite evident in this brew...somewhat chewy. Good brew overall, though didn’t feel right drinking this with warm temps outside!

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark reddy brown body with a frothy tan head - very lively at first. Aroma of malt, brown sugar and sherry trifle. Good body, though no more than medium. Flavours include cherry, mulled wine, sugar and darker malts. Good, bit too sweet maybe.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep orange/amber with a large tan head. Aroma is of raisin, caramel, lots of brown sugar. Flavor repeats the aromas but with the addition of Belgian yeast, heavy cream, some biscuit flavors. Ashy/sweet finish. Full mouthfeel/viscosity, medium carbonation. A very enjoyable Christmas ale from St. Feuillien, as anticipated. Overall, very good to excellent.
