A dark brown beer with a fine light brown head. It has a very powerful sweet fruity aroma. The flavor is also powerful, a little sour, but with a nice sweet malt taste. A really good beer - that I definatly want to try again. The one I had tonight I had bought at the brewery and imported myself. joergen (28108) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 13, 2006

UPDATED: JUL 14, 2005 (Bottle 75 cl) Quite dark, almost chestnut color, with a light brown head. Pretty full-bodied and heavy beer that lacks some finesse. Doesn’t taste heavily like alcohol, but has an unpleasant bitterness. 050599 and 051103 madmitch76 (24807) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2011

Warning! Early amateur rating! A Christmas beer with curacao and thyme. Dark and dry and a little sacharrine, The curucao and thyme are subtle. Odd beer! Not really joined up. Interesting though. Original rating 2.7

Draft! Clear dark brown beer, rich but a little dry. Porty tones with dark fruits. Very faintly spicy. A rich brew.
Limited Edition 2007. Dark red ruby brown with a scant white head. Candy aroma with faint caramel. Medium effervescent mouth. Malty flavor with spices. Very complex, my favorite Christmas ale during a 9-beer tasting of various Belgian Christmas ales.
