Shared a bottle with friends at the Ginger Man in NYC. Pours a dark, ruby-brown with puffy off-white head. Aroma of spices with notes of sweet malts. Flavor is a rich complexity of sweet, dark fruits and spiciness, along with a thick, sugary palatte. Body is almost syrupy. Finish is sweet and mildly warming. Overall quite delicious. mcberko (18422) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 12, 2011
750mL bottle, pours a cloudy amber / maroon with a small beige head. Aroma of vanilla, cinnamon, cardamon, caramel and dark fruits - like a Belgian winter ale. Flavour of vanilla, cinnamon cardamom, some caramel and candied fruits. Excellent incorporation of the spices. Great blend of the winter ale character into a Belgian Strong. Very enjoyable. Oakes (18199) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 5, 2012
Draught. Murky brown. Thin head. Has a Christmas cake aroma with the candied fruit, ginger and whatnot. Liquorice character is strong. The malts have a nice caramel note. Cinnamon and some other spices dominate, with a little bit of alcohol coming in late. Kind of harsh and unbalanced. jtclockwork (16857) - , New Jersey, USA - JAN 4, 2016
