For more than 35 years we had to miss the Christmas beer but in 2002 the tradition was restored with Gouden Carolus Christmas. It’s a strong, dark ruby red ale with character and contains an alcohol percentage of 10.5 % alc.vol. Brewed in August, the beer rests a few months to reach an optimal balance. Six different kinds of herbs and spices and three different kinds of hops define the rich taste followed by a long, well-seasoned aftertaste. Perfect combination with wild, stews or ripened, strong cheeses. Top-class!

Piana obfita drobna, opada powoli zdobiąc szkło. Kolor czarny pod światło rubin. Aromat sporo cytrusów, świeżych słodkich owoców morela, poziomki, anyż, bardzo przyjemny. Smak, owocowy w morele, brzoskwinie słoneczne i słodkie, anyż, ostrawe przyprawowe, goryczka zaznaczona. Całość faktycznie kojarzy sie z okresem świątecznym, ciasta, słodkości. Bardzo Dobre.

Ale belga de abadía de navidad. Color marrón oscuro bonito. Fuerte aroma. Capa de espuma de un dedo que desaparece rapido. Poca carbonatación con burbujas pequeñas. Gusto dulce muy especiado. Ciruelas, caramelo, especias y hierbas varias. Retrogusto agradable. Amargos ausente. Alcohol bien escondido. Mucho cuerpo. Excelente cerveza, pero me gusta mas la s. Bernardus en este estilo.

Daboch (380) - Gdansk, POLAND - APR 14, 2018
Brązoworubinowe, lekko mętne piwo z niezłą jasnobezową pianą. Aromat przypraw, ziół, karmelu i melasy. W smaku karmel, anyż, lukrecja, zioła plus suszone owoce, rodzynki lekko kandyzowane. Całość słodka, lekko syropowe, dobre piwo

DonGregorio (743) - POLAND - APR 3, 2018
Bottle. Unclear ruby colour, quite large tan head. Aroma of caramel, dried fruits, licorice, cherries, candy sugar, spice, anise, nutmeg. Taste is heavy sweet, light bitter, caramel, dried fruits, dates, candy sugar, cherries, spices, nutmeg, anise, some raisins. Cloying. Sweet finish with notes of spices. Medium to full body, oily texture, average carbonation. Very rich flavour, but definitely too sweet.

CraftHowl (788) - Bridgwater, Somerset, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2018
330ml bottle from The Bottle Stop, Bramhall. Pours opaque dark brown with a dissipating beige head. Aroma: sweet, caramel, cola cubes, liquorice, spices. Taste: moderate to heavy sweet, liquorice is dominant, also dates, boozy plums, caramel, dried fruit esters, cinnamon, cloves, light herbal notes. Medium bodied, light carbonation, long, spicy dry finish. It's like an alcoholic dandelion & burdock. Very complex

Аромат необычный и сложный. Слива немного карамели и специй. Цвет и пена потрясающе красивые. Пена очень мелкопузырчатая, весьма быстро спадает, цвет красивый и благородный, темно коричневый. Вкус открывается необычным привкусом от средства от кашля. Некие специи, карамель с отчетливой кислинкой. Послевкусие очень сбалансировано, ощущается сладость и лакрица. В целом очень необычный и уникальный эль.
