A Christmas beer in August??? Well I know it’s not freshly brewed. No date on it. 12% abv so I think it is good to go. I don’t usually report on smell but wow it smells really malty. Pungently. This is fairly sweet. Fruit wise leans towards raisin, fig, cherry. Other wise leans towards toffee, molasses, brown sugar. Just a tad spicy. A little boozy as you finish. Overall not bad and I enjoyed. I’m just not crazy about the super sweet beers.

There's a sweet spiciness in the aroma. Some fruitiness as well. Taste has banana, slight cloves, caramel and raisins. Definitely Belgian yeast used in this one. Medium+ carbonation and a medium-ish body. The 12% abv is not super apparent, but it's a tad bit boozy. Glad I tried it. Not really what I'm looking for in a Christmas beer, but still a good beer. 3.5/5
