From 1½ L bottle, Kerstbierfestival 2007 in Essen/Belgium. Pours deep brown and still golden with a light orange lacing head. Aroma is caramel malty with a nice light spice note. Flavour is mild spiced with a solid malt flavour. Lovely yeasty note lingering in between the malt flavours. Very mild note of dried fruit into the finish. Nice solid caramel malt note lingering far into the finish as well.

Bottled. A deep red beer with a long lasting brown head. The aroma is powerful with a strong spicy note, cloves and cinnamon amonst others, but also with strong notes of brown sugar, fruit both fresh and over ripe, oranges, peaches, as well as notes of cherries and raisins. The flavor is also very powerful with strong notes of brown sugar, caramel, a complex spice combination, including coriander, cloves, and cinnamon, and strong notes of fruits; fresh peaches and oranges, and dried apricot, prunes, and raisins. And the mouthfeel is very filling. The alcohol is only felt until You swallow, where it leaves a slight burn in the throat.

Very hazy dark red - brown beer. Short lived cream - tan head. Softish palate but has a carbonated bite. A little cream with subdued chocolate. Mild coca cola and very mild sourness. Trace of marmite. All flavours are mellow and this is not a strongly flavoured beer for it’s abv.
