adster (804) - HUNGARY - DEC 27, 2015
To Řl-féle ünnepi ital tegnap már tiszteletét tette nálam, ez a második palack tőlük, amely karácsonyi mondandót hordoz. Belgian strong ale-ként hirdeti magát, ami lényegében megfelel annak a típusnak, amit a küllemhez társítanánk, mahagóni színe azonban tiszta, jobban áttetszik, mint egy hagyományos belga főzeté. Nem feltétlenül az élesztőé lesz a színpad az elkövetkezendő percekben - gondolhatnánk, aromái azonban ebből a karakterből is tartogatnak egy adagot, bár való igaz, hogy leginkább mégis komlótól vezérelt illatokkal van dolgunk. Közepes teste csípőskés, gabonásan fűszeres, tartalmas ital képének alakítója, melyben egyaránt jut hely az édes malátanyalábok mazsolás, karamellás színezetének, a fanyar élesztő száraz, enyhén nemespenészes hangulatának, de a kiegyensúlyozott, mégis markáns komló jelenléte az, mely a törzsét adja a főzetnek, így érdemes rá ezen alap mentén gondolni. Nem az a hivalkodóan karácsonyi beltartalom, mint ahogyan az sok esetben lenni is szokott, így meglepődni sem érdemes rajta, viszont azáltal, hogy e meghitt esték valamelyikén fogyasztjuk el az italt, annak lényébe is óhatatlanul beleivódik az ünnep hangulata.

mansquito (6248) - Nueva York, New York, USA - DEC 26, 2015
Owl Farm, Brooklyn bottle pour from 2013 bottle: pours a sediment rixh reddish brown with an off white head. Aroma is toffee, aged beer (think old IPA), yeast. Tase is bitter and feels very aged. The malts have seemingly developed. Pretty thick. Kind of sweet. Not my favorite.

77ships (9350) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - DEC 21, 2015
Thank you! Sampled 750 ml. bottle @ Kerstbierfestival Essen 2015. Near clear dark amber, tanned bubbles. Nose is warming touch oxidized syrupy malt goop with candy, sugar, light vanilla, slightly vinous. Taste is warming Belgian oxidation candy, malts, sugar, lightly vinous, touch oak, light hops, warming licorice, Turkish delight,… Vintage syrupy malts body. Bit of a conflicting, bit akin to an aged Belgian. Lots of things going on but they seem to all cancel out each other. I am used to better from these guys & this is nowhere near on part with the gorgeous Shamelessly Barrel Aged.
