Bottle from Appellation Wines. Appearance - deep copper with a big frothy head. Nose - fruitcake basically. There’s a bit of dried fruit and a dominant cake mixture note. Ginger and cinnamon too Taste - ginger cake and dried fruit. Palate - medium to full bodied with a creamy yet tangy texture and a long balanced finish. Overall - very enjoyable.

Calisky (1346) - ALSACE, FRANCE - DEC 4, 2014
Couleur cuivrée, légère mousse beige. Super nez fruité, vieilles levures, avec forte notes vanillées et futs de bois neuf... le bourbon! Gout fruité doux, fruits jaunes, caramel un peu grillé, et vanille, douceur de canne a sucre. Bien onctueuse en bouche, ronde et buvable. Fin longue fruitée vanillée. Pas mal!

spacecube (1132) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 2, 2014
330 ml bottle, pours clear cherry red with a foamy white head, bready, caramel and candy sugar malts combine to give a danish pastry like backbone, with stewed apple, peach, gooseberry. Woody and bourbon hues add more more depth to this complex brew. Body is medium sweetness, lightly bitter, lightly sour, medium body, sticky, average carbonation. Complex and unusual, and very good.

Sjohnh (331) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2014
Everything and the kitchen sink in here. Smells like a spiced sour ale. Tastes of a whole lot of things - gingerbread, a basket of fruits including passion fruit, pepper, spirit vinegar, cinnamon, brandy. All of which beautifully blended into a very complex, tasty beer. Medium body. Brown and slightly cloudy, medium to full body. That is really good!

PapaVillum (576) - Valby, DENMARK - NOV 28, 2014
33 cl, flaske, 10,0 % ABV, købt i Belgisk Bryg i Emdrup, 29. november 2014. Mørk sirupsfarvet og ufiltreret (smuk og grumset) Belgian Strong Ale med fin offwhite skumtop på ca. 4 cm tykkelse. Svinder langsomt ned til 1 cm penge (!?) Rolig i glasset. Let syrlig og sødlig aroma af honning, alkohol, tropisk frugt, koriander, urter. Vinøs. Fuldendt og kompleks smag med masser af kraftige indtryk. Krydret og igen kraftig sødme og ganske syrlig, men aldrig for meget. Balance opretholdes med en tilpas portion bitterhed. Konsistensen er sticky og øllet føles ganske frisk med et middel indhold af kuldioxid. Rund fyldig krop og en eftersmag, der lader alle danske konsum-juleøl noget at ønske. Lang bittersød og vedholdende. Øllet fremstår sødt, men krydderiernes tyngde får det til at balancere perfekt og gør det aldrig kvalmt. Slowdrinking at it's best!

Gorm (1586) - Sandnes, NORWAY - NOV 13, 2014
Dunkel amber farve med høyt kremet skum. Lukt av malt, frukt, krydder og noe humle. Smak av malt, frukt krydder, whiskey og sitrus. Lang og god bittersøt avslutning. Melkebaren.

From bottle at Cardinal 09.11.14. Clear amber. Dense off-white head. Very sweet aroma of dried fruits and dried red berries. Burnt print cards, berries and medium.dark malt in taste and aftertaste.
