In short: A heavy rich sweet dark ale with a lot of leafy hops. Weirdly interesting.stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - FEB 14, 2010
How: Bottle 330ml. Winter 2008/2009 (I think) . Consumed when about 1 year of age
The look: Clear dark ruby body topped by a medium beige head with medium retention
In long: Nose sweet malts with molasses, black liquorice and the likes… Taste is very sweet, molasses, sweet plums, cloves, ripe bananas, white sugar, syrup of some kind, toffee, butterscotch. The beer is also very hoppy with plenty of leafy hops that almost balance the heavy sweetness. Something oily/buttery about the beer. I thought the beer was a little strange. Like some kind of buttery scotch ale with a ton of hops. I enjoyed it but I wouldn’t drink more than a little bottle. Prides itself to be the beer that initiated the Christmas beer tradition. Christmas beer, why not? Belgium, making excuses to drink beer since 1836.
Bottle. Pours a clear, dark amber beer with an offwhite head. The aroma is sweet, malt, caramel and some English hops. The flavor is likewise sweet, caramel and English hops. The palate is sweet. Overall a good beer. sfhodense (4789) - Odense NØ, DENMARK - MAR 18, 2010
