3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured a opaque nut brown color with a foamy medium bodied slightly off white head. Strong aroma of apples and alcohol. You can just tell this is gonna burn the palate. Flavor is similar, warm and tingly on the tongue with a bitter sweet bite to it. Main flavor is apple but with a nutty finish. I can never tell the Belgians apart but this was drinkable.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml opaque bottle. Very dense dark amber color with a lasting head. Mellow spicy/malty aromas. Big body and full mouthfeel. Intense malt and estery flavors. Big malty flavor starts slightly dry and then tilts toward the slightly sweet, with the alcohol presence building into the finish. Complex and well done.

This was a nice winter ale. Perfect for those cold winter nights. Beer was poured a dark brown color and a light head. Aroma was spicy and flavor was nice and smooth although it’s pretty strong, but well hidden. Good stuff overall, looking forward to getting some more of this.

Got this for xmas from my pops. He said the beer guy told him it was the single highest selling beer in the store for the holidays...i bet its cause of the xmas elephant on the front. Beer poures a beautiful burboney brown with some haze and a medium amount of froathy offwhite head. Aroma is banana, yeast, spices, pine. Flavor is delicious, very smooth, perfect balance of hop, malt and alcohol. Overall, a xmas classic. Definitely buying again next year.
