A warming St. Bernardus Christmas Ale

A warming St. Bernardus Christmas Ale
St. Bernardus Christmas Ale
Brouwerij St. Bernardus (Watou, Belgium)

☞ BREWERY:
Not Trappist, but derived from that ecclesiastical pedigree (and mycological filigree).

☞ SAMPLE:
On draught, at My Parents' Basement, a pub (and comic book shop) in Avondale Estates, Georgia, 30 November 2018.

☞ BEER:
Dark brown/red, tinged with purple. Scant head, but lasting carbonation. Tasting of (but not derived from) raisins, peaches, apples, anise, cinnamon, circus peanuts, marzipan, malt syrup. At 10% alcohol-by-volume (abv), you know it's strong, but, by Yule, it's smoothly sweet, finishing only just off-dry. Delicious.

☞ CODA:
Fire extinguished; beer not char-boiled; drinker warmed.

Drinking, Again!
A series of occasional reviews of beers (and wine and spirits).
No scores; only descriptions.
