While removing the cork, it was clear the cork was too loosely fitting and had no back pressure pushing it out. Nearly totally flat. It pours a hazy, medium-brown body with just some large bubbles, but it’s not carbonation. The nose is very malty like a Brown Ale, a little sweet, and spicy, with spice aromas of cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg. On the palate, the mildly sweet, caramely malts are very toasty but not to the point of being roasty. The sweet, baking spices become more prominent after the entry. It’s medium-full in weight, and as noted, carbonation is just about nil, which makes the sweetness linger without a counterpoint. Overall, this is a pretty tasty beer for the winter season, but man, if only it were carbonated. A touch more bitterness would also help a lot to balance the building sweetness.
750ml bottle. Pours a very large creamy, beige looking head. Has a dark amber/brown colour, very rusty look. Good balance of malts and hops aromas. Some yeast is noticeable and a hint of vanilla. Pretty good lacing. Mouthfeel is slightly watery but a bit creamy at first. Flavours are somewhat bitter with some spices. Faint hops, much more malty taste. Some roasted coffee notes, a hint of caramel. Obtained as a stocking stuffer. How great is that?! :) ChadPoole (478) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 1, 2016
750ml bottle, pours dark amber with a light tanned head. Aromas of malts and spices. Tastes of roasted nuts and a mild sweet eat caramel with a medium body. A great beer. QcBeer (187) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 7, 2016
Arome d’épice et de caramel. Couleur ambré avec de minuscules particules de lies, une mousse fine collant au verre. Goût de miel gingembre et de malt caramelisé! Un arrière goût qui ne perdure pas trop longtemps dans des notes légèrement épicés et mielleux!

0.75 bottle. Clear, brown color and a small, off-white head. Aroma of malts, spices, a tad of licorice, some nuts, and delicate hints of alcohol. Sweet taste of spices, malts, caramel, and cinnamon. Medium body, slick texture, and average carbonation. Finish is even spicier, really Christmas-y. Overall a mediocre beer, nothing unexpected given the usual quality of spiced, Christmas brews. fonefan (49997) - VestJylland, DENMARK - SEP 29, 2015

Bouteille de 750 ml. Belle couleur sirop d’érable. Arôme caramel tout juste assez bien dosée. En bouche c’est cannelle épicée, ensuite mielleuse avec une belle finale sèche. Belle découverte!
