From the very old notes, hence this is not a real rating, but more just a mark to myself that I have tried this at one point. Very nice sweet and boozy, roasty, and spicy brew. kevinator (2238) - The Colony, Texas, USA - JUL 21, 2015
Aroma and flavor of biscuit, spice and yeast. Good color and weighty palate. This had some age on it so there was a drop in the carbonation; however, it held up fairly well. radagast83 (8074) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - DEC 29, 2014
Bottle. This one really mellowed out after a few years. Poured a hazy brown color with a small fluffy head. Aroma was sweet malts, some lingering spices still remain. Light roast. Sweetness, like toffee, with a little booze lingering.

A dark belgian xmas ale. Palate like velvet. Aroma is complex, coffee, vineous. Taste is bitter. Interesting beer. Alengrin (5382) - BELGIUM - SEP 2, 2014
Complex ’massive ale’ in Belgian style with a long list of ingredients including four hop varieties, wheat flakes and candi syrup. Off-white, dense head, very dark burgundy colour, hazy. Strong aroma of dried spices and caramel with hints of orange peel, cloves, bayleaf, nutmeg, caramel, passion fruit, port wine, pear and hay. Dry and tingling spiciness in the onset (dried citrus peel), deep caramelly and chocolatey maltiness, candied fruits, yeast bitterness especially in the end, finishing with leafy hops and warming, sherry-like alcohol. Must be a great provisional beer with amazing ageing potential.
