St. Bernuardus Christmas Ale: 5 Star Beer

The brown sugar sweetness, the chewy body, the notes of ginger snap cookies, the lack of an aftertaste. The smoothness of low carbonation. The cloudy crayon brown color coupled with an everpresent white head. The nose that matches the flavor perfectly. The oh so slight touch of sourness just to letyou know it's belgian. 5 Stars all the way.

I didn't even plan on writing about this one, let alone blogging about it. St. Bernardus out of West Flanders, Belgium hits the mark and hits it hard for what I envision a Christmas Ale would taste like.

That is all.
