KansaiBeerLvrs (2406) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 26, 2014
10% On tap at Luppolo 12 at the end of the night, an opaque muddy brown with a minimal head and a boozy sweet malt nose. The taste was the same but too be honest by this point my taste buds were probably shot. Middle of the road Belgian Christmas beer.

UXO (420) - CANADA - DEC 20, 2014
Pours opaque deep amber with a fat finger of light tan head excellent retention patchy lacing. (4/5) Nose is liquorice, dark boozy fruits, brown sugar, toffee, spices. (8/10) Taste is moderately strong sweet, mild bitter. (8/10) Medium body to full body, prickly to moderate sustained carbonation, and a mildly spicy boozy finish. (5/5) Excellent BDSA with well-behaved warming from the spices and the high ABV. Seems to have aged rather nicely, with mellow flavours. A nice winter evening sipper. (16/20)

Silvan7 (749) - Samarate, ITALY - DEC 18, 2014
Bottle @ home. Etichettata come "winter 2014". Colore ramato scuro, quasi marrone ma con evidenti riflessi rossi. Velata. Schiuma beige fine mediamente persistente. Aroma di media intensità e non troppo complesso, sebbene gradevole. Caramello, liquirizia, porto, spezie (zenzero e coriandolo). Gusto abboccato, quasi amabile. Poco amara, leggermente acida, per via dei malti tostati. Corposa, calda, rotonda e piena. Carbonatazione fine e "pungente". abbastanza equilibrata, indubbiamente armonica.
