Pour deep brown with some red hues. 3 finger off white head that sticks to the glass with nice lacing. Aroma is candy sugar, plum fruits, malts, coffee and chocolate. Flavor was most of the same. Medium body and carbonation for the style. Pretty good stuff from Corsendonk

UPDATED: NOV 11, 2016 Mrkrd med tjockt beige skumkrona. Luktar fruktigt, lite pepprigt och brnd farinsocker. Smaken hyggligt fyllig, lite t svagdricka. Eftersmaken ganska tunn, lite maltstma. Ganska mkt kolsyra som dock frsvinner snabbt.

Aroma floral y afrutado. En boca el primer amago es un intento por salir a relucir el caramelo, frutos negros y especias, pero pronto la acidez y el caf torrefacto se apoderan del conjunto. A m personalmente me agrada mucho ms una Dubbel ms caramelizada y amable.

Den smager af jul. Meget mrk og med tt skum. Der er lidt lakrids at spore, malt og ikke den vamle sdme der tit delgger julebryg.

Originally rated on 12/5/08. A little disappointed in this one, the aroma and flavors were barely present however there were very, very faint hints and tastes of raisin, and malts but not much else. It looked nice with a very deep brown body, plenty of carbonation and a good head. Mouthfeel was smooth and the alcohol was well hidden. I liked this beer overall but the flavors should have been more assertive for such a highly rated brew. I would like to give it a second chance someday.
