Draft @ Three Fires. Raisin, brown sugar, bready/doughy malt, and spice aroma. Reminded me a little of a fresh baked cinnamon roll. Hazy amber with a small off-white head. Belgian yeast, toasty/bready malt, alcohol, and dark fruit flavor. Medium body, soft carbonation.

Bottle. Pours dirty copper/mahogany with a thin tight off white head that fades to a thin collar and wispy film. Aroma is boozy and sweet with burnt sugars and caramel some dark fruit and clove. Taste is bitter boozy and dusty with more of the above is lesser than the aroma. Palate is medium slick and warming.

I reckon they used every spice they could get for this christmas beer. Nevertheless, it turned out very well. A rich and complex beer with a very diverse and nice taste.

jmgreenuk (4230) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 16, 2012
Bottle at the Essen Christmas Beer Festival. Poured a cloudy golden brown with a very thin round head with no carbonation. The aroma is of fresh sticky toffee. The flavour is rich strong and alcoholic and the toffee is present here too. A lovely heart warming beer.
