Bottle from A Tutta Birra, Milanosaxo (18291) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - JUN 23, 2012
Hazy dark amber color, with giant head, and too much yeast in the bottle and under the cap. Some aroma of medium roasted malts and mild spices. Good body, dark caramel flavor; dusty chocolate, maybe with a nutty and spicy edge; there is also some yeast astringency. Quite good, but rough.
Bottle @ fonefan tasting. Nice head with good duration. Color is brown. Aroma and taste are rich malt, caramel, nuts, fruits and hops. Nice dry finish. chrisv10 (17417) - DENMARK - JUN 22, 2012
Bottle, 7%. Deep amber/brown with small beige head. Aroma is malt, fruit, yeast, caramel and dark fruits. Flavour is malt, yeast, dried fruits, caramel, little chocolate, medium sweet and hop. yngwie (17049) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 22, 2012
Bottle. A clear, amber colored beer topped by a dense, light beige head of moderate size. The aroma gives a dryish impression, with some caramel, nuts and dried fruits. Lightly earthy both in aroma and flavor. Else the flavor has nuts and caramel, some bitterness and prunes in the back. Dry, medium bodied and a bit hard on the carbonation. Not my favorite Belgian Christmas beer, but a decent one anyway. 120622

Bottle 330ml @ fonefansebletitje (10080) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUN 22, 2012
Pours clear deep amber with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, yeast and dried fruits. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.
33cl bottle. Comparée en verticale avec la version ’Douce Vertus’ avec un léger changement dans le malt sans pour cela nuire au profile habituel de la version normale. L’ajout du Otter est bien placé sans pour autant offrir une variation profonde de la version habituelle.
Au final, cette version mérite presque d’être combinée avec la normale.
