Butelka 0.33L.

Wygląd: Klarowne z iskrą, miedziane. Obfita kremowo-żółta piana, średnio i drobnopęcherzykowa, średniotrwała.

Aromat: Ciemne pieczywo, goździk, guma balonowa, śliwka, lekko dziwie, stajenne nuty, lekko fenolowe, suszone owoce i nuta sherry. Pachnie jak dubel.

Odczucie: Wysycenie średnie, ciało średnie-, puszysto-kremowa faktura

Smak: Kwas chlebowy, ciemne pieczywo, suszone owoce, słodki początek z lekko kwaskowym, śliwkowym rozwinięciem, na finiszu półwytrawne z lekką do średniej intensywną goryczką ziemistą, przyprawową, wzmocnioną ułożonym alkoholem.

Całość: Bardzo fajny belgian strong ale. Złożony, przyjemnie skomponowany z ułożonym alkoholem, przyprawami i owocami suszonymi.

On tap @ Le Saint-Bock.

Appearance: Slightly hazy bright dark amber/golden-ish with a medium fully lasting tan head and good lacing.

Aroma: Christmas spices, caramel, alcohol and red fruits.

Taste: Moderate to medium sweetness. Christmas spices are dominants along with a strong caramel/malt presence, toasted notes, red fruits and very mild acidity.

Palate: Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Mouthfeel is a bit syrupy. Moderate spicy finish with a bit of alcohol warmth.

Overall: A bit unbalanced and too spicy for my liking, but it’s an interesting spiced Belgian Ale. Tasty.
