Pours ruby/copper with a fading off-white head.
Great aroma of mixed spices (including nutmeg), booze, lovely caramel and dried fruit. Tempting.
More spices as flavours, mixing in with sweet bready malt and a whack of booze. Feels like it should have more golden syrup and brown sugar notes, dubbel style.
Carbonation seems a little excessive.

Tried this many moons ago at GABS in Melbourne where it was released. I also have a bottle stashed away waiting to be sampled again (which I plan to do soon after re-reading my review from GABS). This is the version I tried on-tap at GABS, which was listed at the slightly higher ABV of 9.5%.
Pours a deep copper colour with quite good clarity in the heavy body. Head is yellow forming a full, bubbly ring around the glass. Lace is pretty decent and solid. Carbonation is very fine; when tilted the carbonation forms powder and the body looks sticky. Looks great.
Nose is spicy and pretty much on-target given their description: sticky sweet fruit cake, lots of semi-sweet burnt toffee, raisins with sharper orange peel notes. Dark fruits abound, but with a spiciness and a booze to give it an edge. Good stuff.
Spicy on the front of the palate. Sleek orange comes through before there are spicier notes mid-palate: nutmeg, cinnamon and brandy, giving a heady, spicy heat like Benedictine. Back is quite hot once the brandy character and its intrinsic booziness have had their say: peely aromatic abound from the front, but mostly it has a hot sharpness from the alcohol.
Feel is relatively light, partially because it's spliced that way by heat from the mid palate. It could be richer to mimic the sweetness of the aromas a bit more.
Overall, it's really good stuff though. It has loads of flavour and is always interesting after each sip. What's more it's exceedingly successful at delivering what the name promises.
