Bottle received via trade with FlandersNed. Pours clear tawny with a small, bubbly off-white head, short retention with spare to no lacing. Aroma is raspberry dominant with fig and raisins with nuts and toast malt. Flavor is lightly tart dried fruits, toast and nutty malt with a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

deyholla (11606) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 21, 2011
On tap at the 2011 Kuhnhenn’s Winter Solstice. Pours a hazy rusty amber with a light brown head that dissipates quickly and nearly completely. Aroma is full of spice and fruitcake with a strong stollen backing note. Flavor begins with lots of spice and is joined by bread, grains and fruitcake which is a bit odd. Overly spiced.

Beerman6686 (6607) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 16, 2013
This one poured a murky brown color with a beige head. Aroma was of caramel, dark fruits, and spices, similar to a fruitcake. Flavor was more of the fruity side, very sweet, a lot like medicinal cherry cough syrup. Not too good.

A bizarre tasting brew that does indeed bring to mind fruitcake. Not a huge fan of it.
