on tap - mcmenamin’s (philadelphia) - pours a ruby brown. aroma was not very pleasant- spices and sweaty feet (not good sweaty feet like some cheeses). Flavor was thin, mild, and slightly unpleasant. Not a favorite.

On tap, Pizza Port Strong Ale Fest. cquiroga is right, this is like anchor’s christmas release Belgian style. Slightly spicy. Too sugary and sweeter than I like it. Overall this is not my type of beer. Still, it is very nicely made.

Tap at the cockney Pub.
Caramel, rotten fruits, malty.
Small off-white head.
Metallic, little alcoholic, fruity, a little bit bitter.
Fills the mouth nicely. Smooth.

Prune brown pour with a light tannish head. Dark fruit aroma. Sugary dark fruit flavors. Odd finish.

750. Simple warming belgian. Heaving on the sweetness with some big fisted cardamom and fig. I did not eat much ’earthyness’ as others did. For my December buck I would stick with delirium noel.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Dark fruit flavor with a strange spice taste. Not an easy beer to swallow with its unique bite. Definitely not my favorite mix of malts and fruits in a beverage...
