Bottel from Tbone_. Dark brown color. Apricot, lychee, cinnamon and coreander in the aroma. Sweet and spicy flavor with raisin. Medium bodied. Short, just a bit sugary aftertaste. Decent. Bov (13221) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - APR 16, 2008
courtesy of oh6gdx - cloudy reddish-brown colour with a firm and persistant beige foam leaving a nice lace; heavily spicy aroma showing strong notes of cloves and cinnamon; herbs and orange; very fine carbonation, sweet and medium to full-bodied, very tart palate and a respectable bitterness; long spicy finish with notes of gingerbread - not bad though a bit chemical thewolf (12749) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUL 13, 2008

[thank you, Tbone]
Pours muddy brown with a big, creamy, off-white/beige head. Aroma is sweet , good toffee and sweet coriander notes. Fine, light mouthfeel. Flavour is good toffee and nice spiciness. Quite nice.
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy dark amber colour with a medium good lasting beige head leaving fair lazing. The aroma is spiced (mainly cinnamon), with liquorice, roasted malt and some dark fruits. Good mouthfeel. The flavour is spiced and bitter-sweet with liquorice, roasted malt, caramel and hops. Well lasting spiced mildly roasty finish. gnoff (10826) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 8, 2008

33cl bottle, thanks Fatphil-Dark brown with red tinges. Fruity spicy aroma with a hint of raisins. The cinnamon is not particularly evident in the taste of the beer but there is a mild spiciness. Drinkable and another good beer from Proef! Marko (5930) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 11, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2008 RBESG08 grand tasting
From my two ratings for a Kerstbok, this was the one where it just said "Kerstbok" so this is probably it. Hazy brownish amber colour, strong sweet malty nose, slightly spicy malty taste. Not the best beer on the tasting.
