Caña en Cervecería Kraken (Oviedo) Se nota bastante el alcohol, sabores a caramelo, cuerpo medio.

Hoprider (751) - DENMARK - DEC 17, 2017
Always liked this a lot. Pours an almost clear brown colour with a light beige head. Aroma has malty bready notes, light Christmas spice. Taste is fairly sweet and malty, a little coffee, a little nutty. Hides the abv very well. Light on the Belgian yeast notes. Good beer.

UPDATED: NOV 28, 2017 Arrived in a xmas beer pack from Belgium beers in a box. Great beer with hints of nuts, caramel and spice

adamnowek (3416) - Brussels, BELGIUM - NOV 26, 2017
Dark cola brown. Fairly large, off-white head. Aroma is soy sauce. Taste is soy sauce and sugar. This must have gone bad.

WingdSoldier (77) - BELGIUM - JUL 1, 2017
Pours hazy brown with a slightly reddish glare. Malty taste with hints of caramel, nuts, bread and chicory.

dorain (696) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUN 3, 2017
Aus der 0,75 Flasche 2016-12 getrunken. Für mich etwas enttäuschend und fast schon langweilig. Das einfache Xmas aus der kleinen Flasche ist mir in besserer Erinnerung geblieben. Schade. Am Ende bleibt immernoch guttrinkbares Bier.
Aus der 0,33 Flasche 2015-01 getrunken. Nach dem Name ist man schon überrascht das dies ein belgisches Bier im Stil eines Dubbels vor sich im Glas hat. Für mich war es eine positive und sehr leckere Überraschung.

hrabren (1736) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAY 23, 2017
0.33 l bottle at MBR, Remetinec, Zagreb. Dark amber to brown, clear, creamy off-white to tan head. Very nice. Dark cherry aroma, caramel, toasted malts, roasty, light spicy. Moderate sweet, balanced, light roasty. Medium body, medium carbonation, moderate dry finish.

ManVsBeer (10973) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2017
Bottle from Deli Belge, Sowerby Bridge. Dark reddish-brown with a thin head. Strong but not quite feeling its strength, partly through a gentle smoothness in its texture. It has rich dark malts in its taste with a sweetness here and in its nose.

Lisowczyk (98) - POLAND - MAR 7, 2017
Bardzo dużo słodu, karmelu i odrobina ciemnego pieczywa. Do tego rodzynki, suszone owoce, cukier kandyzowany, nuty przypraw od drożdży. Piwo o sporej pełni i słodyczy, którą kontruje jak na styl wysoka goryczka. Do bólu klasyczna Belgia, ale to nie piwo świąteczne.
