Abbaye Des Rocks Speciale Noel
That's what happened to me with this bottle. It seems a lot of Belgian bottled beers I store for a while turn lively (probably due to the use of brewing sugars adding fermentables). Though once it's in the glass it doesn't disappoint. Aromas are of up-front clove, orange peel and nutmeg spice combined with peachy fruity alcohols. The palate opens with a dominant, rich, candy-sugar sweetness that's nuanced with more nutmeg spice. Candy, yeast, peachy fruit and caramelised malt. It sure is on the sweet side, and rather drinkable for its 9% abv. Nice on its own, or as I found out, with cheesecake.
