JDBaker11058 (2008) - 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 bruleed 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 wont be the last.

Vajaat 4 vuotta ikntynyt Pukin pikku apulainen maistelussa. Tummanruskea olut kohtalaisella vaaleanruskealla, hieman maitokahvin vrisell vaahdolla. Intensiivinen tuoksu hykk esiin jo pulloa avatessa. Tuoksussa marjaista mausteisuutta, salmiakkia, paahteisuutta sek lmmittvn jouluinen ja punaviiniminen tunnelma. Maku tuo vahvasti mieleen punaviinin. Oikein tytelinen, sopivalla sekoituksella makea, jouluisen mausteinen, salmiakkinen, luumuinen sek hieman kuivattavan katkera loppuliuultaan. Kevyt hiilihappoisuus kevent kivasti tytelist, sokerista suutuntumaa. Todella laadukas olut ja kypsytys on ehdottomasti kannattanut.

rosenbergh (11042) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 24, 2014
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...

kermis (12009) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 30, 2014
Bottle shared thanks to Rlgk. Pours dark brown with a small beige head. Aroma of big raisin, prunes, overripe dark fruits, Christmas spices, toffee and a slight dank mold aspect, not in an unpleasant way, from the aging. Flavor is light heavy sweet and light moderate bitter with a real booziness coming out in the palate. Full bodied with soft carbonation.
