JDBaker11058 (2252) - Maryland, USA - DEC 24, 2010
Appearance: very dark brown, almost like a porter; thick, creamy off-white head that lingered in the trappist goblet throughout; rich, thick lacing. Aroma: warm, dark malts, chocolate, dark fruits (cherries?) in syrup, raisins, molasses, hint of cinnamon and clove. Taste: rich dark toasty malts, bittersweet chocolate, bit of brulee’d sugar, anise, ginger, hint of cloves, molasses, brown sugar, and a nice dosage of sprucy, resinous hops. Finish: lingering sense of warm dark bread just eaten, with a yeasty spiciness mixing with the hops to freshen the palate. Notes: A superlatively enjoyable holiday beer. This was my first beer from Mikkeller. Judging by this one, it certainly won’t be the last.

Vajaat 4 vuotta ikääntynyt Pukin pikku apulainen maistelussa. Tummanruskea olut kohtalaisella vaaleanruskealla, hieman maitokahvin värisellä vaahdolla. Intensiivinen tuoksu hyökkää esiin jo pulloa avatessa. Tuoksussa marjaista mausteisuutta, salmiakkia, paahteisuutta sekä lämmittävän jouluinen ja punaviinimäinen tunnelma. Maku tuo vahvasti mieleen punaviinin. Oikein täyteläinen, sopivalla sekoituksella makea, jouluisen mausteinen, salmiakkinen, luumuinen sekä hieman kuivattavan katkera loppuliu’ultaan. Kevyt hiilihappoisuus keventää kivasti täyteläistä, sokerista suutuntumaa. Todella laadukas olut ja kypsytys on ehdottomasti kannattanut.

750 ml bottle. BB 15/09/16. Bought some years ago... Dark reddish brown colour with a small tan head. Spices, sweetness, malt, liquorice, chocolate and some alcohol notes in the aroma. The flavour is chocolate, spices, sweet malt, toffee and alcohol. This has aged quite nicely. Strong and Christmas spicy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

more ripe fruit and booze in here than past years, but still a very nice Belgian dark ale. Getting up there in price, though...

Bottle courtesy of rlgk. The aroma is rich sweet red-berry fruit. The flavour is strong sweet with a big rich spicy fruit palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation.
