    330 ml bottle, soon available at Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 6.6%. Beautiful clear reddish brown colour, large off-white head. Pleasant aroma of malts, caramel, brown kandij sugar and mild Christmas spices. Relatively light bodied for its strength and style. The flavour is not as sweet as I feared, but has otherwise the same elements as the aroma. Mild spices and very moderate hops in the finish. Please disregard that it is brewed by the biggest brewery corporation in the world - this is a good beer!

    It’s really too long ago since I drank this beer to remember all details. All I know that I drank it eating pizza and the taste was just perfect. However nothing special with this beer.

    750 ml corked and caged bottle, as a 6.6 % ABV. Poured in the original Leffe chalice a clear ruby-brown coloured Belgian Ale with a good one finger beige foamy head that had a very long retention and tons of micro bubbles. Soft carbonation. Good lacing. The aroma is sweety toasted malts, brown sugar, biscuits, spicy, cinnamom, a touch of licorice. The flavour is sweety caramel malts, molasses, notes of honey, spicy, gingerbread, cinnamom and grassy hops. The mouthfeel is sweet-syrupy, a bith oily, quite thin and a bit watery. This medium bodied Bière de Noël has a dry spicy and light bitter finish. Not bad but an averaging Kerstbier.

    Nearly black with a beige head. to level the odor it gives off aromas of spices (gingerbread). one feels in the mouth cramel it is soft and lacks the red (round) that often characterizes Leffe.

    Bottled (thanks fonefan). Reddish deep amber colour with small beige head. Aroma is caramel, slight alcohol, yeast, fruits and mild spices. Flavour is caramel malts, spices, some bread and mild notes of alcohol as well.

    Bottle shared by Robert at the SSSSLT. Pour was amber-ruby colored, small head with weak retention. The aroma was candy sweet darker fruits, some bubblegum type elements maybe too. The flavor followed the aroma, just a nastily sweet beer, although not syrupy thick or anything. Might as well spike a drink box if you want something like this. Mouthfeel was low on carbonation, a little bit of that stickiness. Thanks again Robert, a great SSSSLT! I think we're back to the SSSLT nomenclature after this one!
