DesertDevil (687) - Arizona, USA - DEC 29, 2012
On draft at Whole Foods Chandlers Watering Hole. Pours a slightly hazy dark burgundy (almost like wine). Sweet aroma of apples, figs, and some licorice. Dark roasted figs, burnt sugar and raisins on the taste. Syrupy palate. Not bad.

TheRealMGD (555) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - DEC 28, 2012
Bottle from Bottlewerks. Dark brown-black, oily pour with a medium, persistent beige head leaving heavy lace. Nose is chocolate covered cherries, chocolate liqueur and a bit of black licorice. Heavy, smooth body with light, very fine carbonation. Chocolate, vanilla, licorice, cherries and a bit of pine hops. While the swallow is sweet, the finish is more balanced, with sweet chocolate and bitter pine hops and some woody umami. A delicious treat for the Holidays.

bnoel09 (586) - Elk Grove, California, USA - DEC 27, 2012
Poured into a tulip glass. Dark cola brown with a thick, dense head of tiny brown bubbles. Aroma is malty and roasty with some chocolate and dark fruit notes as well as some Belgian candi sugar. Flavor is similar to the aroma with a lot of roastiness as well as some dark fruit and some of the Belgian yeast influence, and some piney hops towards the finish. Body is surprisingly light for the bold flavors and alcohol content. Has a slightly sticky mouthfeel and a long roasty/piney finish. This is dangerously drinkable for 11%. Overall this is an awesome beer with an incredible amount of flavor and alcohol that is still fairly light bodied and easy to drink.

RedSox2004 (1816) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - DEC 27, 2012
Black with mahogany highlights, mocha-colored head that retained well and left very nice lace. Aromas of dark fruit , mollasses, caramel and alcohol. Flavors are similar, accentuated the sweetness of the dark fruit and caramel, accompanied by a warming alcohol. Full body, generous carbonation, silky mouthfeel, and a pleasantly warm and sweet finish.

Cirrhosis (1283) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 26, 2012
Very dark brown.....well just call it black, a thin brown crown floats on top. Nose is full of raisins, pine, and hints of coffee. Aroma could be bolder. Couldnt wait needed to drink..... thick..... raisins.... molasses.... coffee finish. I let beer warm for half an hour, so much better now. Heavy almost burnt tasting malt, thick dark fruit that morphs into cheery in the finish. Ash, wood, prunes, coffee. Crap done half the bottle my head is vibrating/spinning. I think Im hitting Belgian yeast but not sure. I swear this is more of a Porter the Belgian strong. So much cheery in the nose now. When I exhale my breath taste like booze and melons. BLETCH!!!!! All my thoughts are fuzzy and confused, Im concentrating as hard as I can but unable to focus on anything. Dam this tasty. Burnt sugar bordering on soya sauce. Starting to notice a ashtray in the lingering aftertaste. A drunk Brad is a happy Brad..... until morning, hungover Brad hates everyone..... hell cut you.

omhper (24539) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 26, 2012
Bottled, from Systembolaget, Stockholm. Hazy dark brown, rich head. Chocolatey spruce aroma. Sweetish with medium-full body and rounded mouthfeel. Fruity with milk chocolate, spruce needles and fudge. Warming finish with sticky caramel. Well hidden alcohol. Lots of flavours, but nothing subtle.

MikeLuke23 (83) - Tampa, Florida, USA - DEC 25, 2012
Pours deep brown & brass. Smells of anise and licorice. Strong licorice flavor, some mild citrus from the hops. Nice Belgian, but not my favorite example of a holiday ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
