750ml bottle pours a reddy brown color with a bit of head. Mild spice that overpowers the rest of the beer.

I think I may have gotten a bad bottle. It had a metallic taste. Color was great but appeared to have truub floating...a lot.

Strong malty aroma, caramel, raisin, and chocolate with bread and prune. Light clove and nutmeg
Pours a murky amberish brown with small wispy head. Big Co2 bubbles visible
More spice in flavor than aroma. Lots of malt as well, bread, caramel and raisin
Medium bodied with medium high co2. Sweet and dry finish
Enjoyable beer. Well balanced, not overly complex. Would go good with a hearty meal

UPDATED: JAN 10, 2015 On draught at English Cellar Alehouse. Cloudy light brown. Head was completely gone by the time it reached me. Aroma is spiced raisin bread. Light caramel. Flavor of caramelized banana, light apple and cherry juice. Hint of bread crust. Watery-syrupy body with light soft carbonation. A decent Noel with more of a soft/reserved flavor profile and a smack of banana. Bebum (990) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 9, 2015
Light copper, slightly hazy.
Mid-full body, well flavored, alcoholic heat and taste, silky texture, good length.
Bitter, not too dry.
Pleasant and rich, not as many flavors as I hoped for.

Nice malty aroma dark fruits, molasses, sugared caramel, Belgian candi sugar and Belgian yeast. Appears a dark brown with tons of head. Taste is nice with notes of sugary raisin overtones, molasses, plums, prune juice, caramel, subtle toffee and Belgian candi sugar. Finishes sweet with a nice dark fruit sweetness. Overall, Nice balance but not anything spectacular. A- rating. GnarlyGnome (770) - Fairfield, Ohio, USA - JAN 4, 2015
Draft: Wasn’t a huge fan of this...but I’m curious what it would be like with some time on it. Would like to try it again sometime. Had too much dark fruit for me...although I suppose I should have anticipated it. Chadski4 (170) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JAN 3, 2015
Interesting but not very impressive. Plum, spices and cola flavors. Lively carbonation. wbright10 (22) - - JAN 3, 2015
Bottle. Sweet with raisiny dry finish. Full bodied flavor with notes of dates, raisins, and dried fruit. Smooth, but packs a wallop. Good for celebrations. strap (915) - Sindelfingen, GERMANY - DEC 29, 2014
On draft at a hotel in Paris. Light caramel color with minimal head. A bit of Christmassy spices. Slight alcohol burn. Not bad
