(bottle, 33cl) Hazy, dark and ruby amber colour with a medium-sized tanned foamy head. Sweet dark malty and sour-fruity aroma of citrus, plums and red berries, accompanied by shades of caramel, light spicy notes and traces of sweaty hops. Sweet and moderately sour flavour, medium bodied with a rather smooth carbonation. Dark malty base with an aromatic fruity touch and a tinge of burnt elements/caramel; moderately sweet fruit-accented and spicy finish. A very nice brew. 04.XII.09

In short: A spicy cookie in a bottle. Drinkable.
How: Bottle 330ml, 1+ year of age
The look: Cloudy redish-brown body topped by a persistent small tan head
In long: Spicy nose, the type of Christmas beer spiciness with a lot of cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and such. Taste adds a lot of pleasant dark fruits (prunes, raisins and such) that work somewhat well with the strong spicy character. The malt has such a strong cookie character that the beer really felt like a spicy christmas/graham cookie. Molasses and cane sugar complete the flavour spectrum. Very yeasty with a fluffy and floury sensation. This could very well pass as a Belgian Christmas beer. Not a bad beer but calling it “UltraDelight” is very misleading, almost fraudulent. Like this appliance I bought that was called “Maintenance-free”, if it breaks it cannot be fixed.
