The best spiced ale I've ever had. A nice malt sweetness provides a background for the perfectly harmonised spices. Seek this out at all costs if in the area.

Bottle at brady’s pub. Sweet, spicy aroma of Belgian yeast, clove, cinammon. Banana, plum, bread, clove, nutmeg, dark fruits. Deep, complex flavor masking an alcohol content you’ll feel later . Awesome.

UPDATED: NOV 24, 2003 Nicely spiced Belgian style ale, lots of different spices in the nose as well as the flavors, cinnamon, nutmeg, corander, sweet gale, decent warming affect from the alcohol, very little head, dark amber in color, very nice seasonal beer

It has the delicious potent aroma of cherries and a ruby red appearance. The sweet cherry malt flavor is delicious, but there is a boozy flavor more prevalent on top.

Has a very robust aroma of spices and malt. Pours a mahogany body with a white head. Goes down smooth with a little after taste.

Smooth for a high 10.5. Aroma is nice and a pleasant carmel color. Taste is very subtle l, but packs a bite even after just one brew. Nice!

Wonderful spiced Belgian Strong ale. ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, coriander... all sorts of good stuff. Very nice, warms you on a cold night. I believe this is the same beer as the No Name Christmas Ale. They apparently found a name for it.

Deep golden color. Very good beer. Malty and spicey. High in alcohol but subtle in flavor. Very enjoyable. Good beer for a nightcap.
