This hazy brown pour has sour notes in the aroma. It turns out it is the sweet tart flavors of figs. Not bad but not what I expected from a Christmas Ale.

Bottle. Poured a rich copper color. Nose is sweet with Belgian yeast. Lots of fruit notes some fruity sweetness. Hints of chocolae and spice with a fairly creamy mouthful. The taste and feel of a classic Belgian dubbel with light spice notes. Nice.

Bottle. Attractive deep brown. Active carbonation. Spicy aroma like a Belgian ale. Slightly chemically smell, cherries, berries, spices. Round, warm flavor. Malty, toasty, sweet. Im surprised at the low rating. I like it.

mesperon (205) - Hillsdale, New Jersey, USA - FEB 21, 2010
Deep and dark brown, opaque with mahogany edges, fluffy tan foamy head that lasts and bubbly lace. Super candy sweet aroma with a faint touch of spice. SIlky smooth feel. Starts sweet, a touch of burn from the alcohol (which is surprising at 7.5%) develops into a little bit of bitterness from the roast, no real hop flavor. Tatstes a bit salty, almost like it was oak-aged. Slightly peppery alcohol and spice in the finish which last a bit. Clove and maybe ginger in the end. Very nice.
