On tap at Lost Abbey. Pours brown-black with thick off white head that leaves plenty of lace. Root beer and licorice on the nose. Root beer! Thick full-bodied palate. Well balanced sweetness with a spicy undertone. They say there are raisins in there and I can believe it but it is subtle. Awesome Belgian-Style dark farmhouse beer.

alteregoo (1235) - POLAND - MAR 16, 2017
Piana obfita, nieco mydlana, szybko opada do firanki. Barwa rubinowa, delikatnie opalizująca. W aromacie faktycznie da się rozpoznać rozmaryn, ciemny mid, i rodzynki, do tego ciemne winogrona, melasa, dojrzałe czereśnie, karmel, zioła... W smaku słodkie, lekko szczypiące od wysokiego nagazowania i pikantnych przypraw, znw na pierwszym planie rozmaryn, kandyzowany cukier, ciemne owoce, figi i rodzynki. Goryczka całkiem solidna, migdałowa, w posmaku cała masa ził, cierpkich jagd, miodu spadziowego. Alkohol wyraźnie rozgrzewający, ale przyjemny. W odbiorze nie jest gęste czy oleiste, ale przypomina troszkę słodką nalewkę na ziołach.
To samo piwo w wersji bez rozmarynu skradło by moje serce. Nadal jest super, ale ziołowość pokroju piw świątecznych budzi skojarzenia raczej z czymś pomiędzy Gouden Carolus Christmas a St. Bernardus Christmas Ale i sprawia, że piwo staje się wymagające w degustacji.

Turtles (2402) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 3, 2017
750ml bottle from Systembolaget, vintage 2016. Dark brown with a dense tanned head, some lacing. Toasted malty aroma, sticky dried dark fruit, sherry, raisins and spices. Full-bodied, medium carbonated with small sharp bubbles that works well against the sweet and creamy mouthfeel. Spicy and herbal taste, sweet dried fruit, roasted malt, caramel, sherry, port, raisins, prunes, honey, peppery yeast, chocolate and licorice. Dry and warming finish. Several dimensions and very enjoyable.

ctipping (1715) - Florida, USA - FEB 28, 2017
750 mL bottle. Originally reviewed 7/4/2013. Deep ruby brown body with a big khaki head. Thin surface foam. Nose is very spicy. Rosemary is evident. Dark fruit. A little cinnamon. Brown sugar. Flavor has lots of caramel and brown sugar right up front, but it drops off quickly. Raisins and dark fruits. Spicy and dry. Rosemary is strong again. Cinnamon spice in the finish. Medium body, nicely dried out. Highly carbonated. Like a Christmas ale in its spice component. Kinda overpowers the beer.

Hopmaestro (1539) - rebro, SWEDEN - FEB 16, 2017
Aroma is sweet with sugar and fudge taking the lead. Theres quite a lot of spice action going on as well. Taste is is darker sweeter malts, christmas beer tones, winter spices and dark fruits. I catch a dry wooden note as well. Light alcohol in the end. Finely crafted, but it really doesnt do it for me - at least not to that extent that I go crazy, strip down naked and run into the woods. I enjoyed it though.

pjotrapostou (104) - POLAND - FEB 13, 2017
Piękna, ciemna piana, szybko opada. W zapachu przyprawy, bardzo delikatnie wyczuwalne suszone owoce, anyż. W smaku więcej typowo quadruplowych przypraw i sporo słodkiego karmelu. Spore wysycenie, alkohol wyczuwalny. Dobre.

Classic ale aroma, nothing special. Dark color with low carrbonation. Alcohol present in the taste. Dark quadrupel with a caramel hint. Nice.
