(Bottle 33 cl) Hazy, amber golden with a dense, creamy, off-white head. Intense - and very Belgian - aroma of yeast, fruit and phenols. Quite full-bodied with a soft mouthfeel, plenty of yeast, fruit and phenols, but all in a good way. Dry, lightly bitter finish. An excellent Christmas beer. 180108

Bottle courtesy of Greg Engert at Churchkey.
Chestnut/amber color with a large white head, long-lasting, with great lacing.
Subtle aroma of spice, maybe cinnamon and nutmeg.
Flavor begins with light mixed winter spice, then grass, then malt, then pumpernickel bread, and finishes with a faint bitter edge. Nicely complex.
My second favorite Christmas beer of the 2009 season so far, very nice indeed.
Bottle from Artisanales Bières Belges, Crissier, Switzerland
As soon as opened the bottle starts gushing quickly; only half of the bottle contant reaches the glass, with a cloudy dark amber color. Medium intensity for the caramel aroma, while the caramel flavor is stronger; there is enough sweetness to make a round body, some candi sugar, too much carbonation, and a delicate spicy touch. The final has some light chocolate too. Quite good.

Nice red-amber color; big head. The malty aroma has a fruity touch. The flavor is basically caramel, a dark and quite bitter quality. Ordinary.
