Bottle at home. Rich toffee malts, dark fruits with a touch of nuttiness. Lots of Christmas spices. Full bodied. Lovely warming festive beer.

Marrone chiara con riflessi arancio, opalescente, schiuma beige non molto persistente. Aroma di albicocca essiccata, zucchero di canna, bourbon, note legnose e di nocciola, freschezza etilica mista a frutta fermentata. Al palato stesse componenti con bourbon maggiormente in evidenza, finale erbaceo e leggermente tostato. Corpo medio, carbonazione medio-bassa, leggermente oleosa.

ICEatALAMO (1297) - Troy, Michigan, USA - DEC 26, 2015
'13 bottle. The pour is a bubbly hazy orange. The aroma has some sweet and belgian malt. The taste is slightly over carbonated, not much barrel flavor, more just a belgian. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Thanks to Werckmeister? Amber body with tan head. Aroma is honey with ripe fruits and some Belgian yeast. Taste is also sweet and fruity with some sourness,caramel and hints of wood. Aftertaste is nice bitter balanced with some sweetness. Nice one.

UPDATED: JAN 5, 2016 Main defects are little aroma, and pouring a savage bubble storm: foam is great but quickly dissappearing. Overall, common characteristics with Belgian Strong ales remain, sweet taste, long finnish, etc.
