Huhzubendah (2256) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 15, 2013
The beer is chestnut brown with a thin beige collar. The aroma offers brown bread, yeast, holiday spices, cinnamon. Thinner than I expected. Slightly sweet with notes of molasses, hints of dark fruit. A touch of alcohol in the finish. Lingering bready yeast. Pretty tasty.

glennmastrange (2143) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JAN 29, 2013
Bottle. Moderate cookie and toasted for the malt, cooked orange for the hops, dough for the yeast, with hints of raisin, brown sugar, nutmeg and vanilla. Head is small, frothy, tan with some slippery lacing and is almost fully diminishing. Color is very dark brown. Flavor starts heavily sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes moderately sweet and lightly acidic and bitter. Palate is medium to full, almost syrupy with a soft carbonation and a chewy and stick finish. This Belgian Strong Ale make a nice winter warmer.
