X35 - Dieu Du Ciel Solstice D´Hiver (Canada)

A very deep, creamy, almost port like nose with notes of black, sugared coffee, smoke, tar/asphalt and some black cherrys. Deep and withdrawn, it doesn´t show off, but I like that. Very good.
The taste is big and creamy with lots of dark fruit and chocolate with a nice bitterness. You can´t feel the 10,5% alcohol, which its nice. Long and warm. Very good but it lacks somewhat in the complexity department. A solid, very good beer but a touch foursquare.

89p   (tasted from bottle - 2011/01)
