Kerstmutske Christmas Nightcap

ABV: 7.4%
Style: Belgian Strong Dark Ale


Reactions and Insights
Yup, a holiday beer, with molasses and coffee the way they do it. I was apparently supposed to drink it at the end of the evening, based on its name, but I instead made it a starter.

Would I drink a case of it? 
No, and I can’t imagine who would, really. It’s only available during the holiday season so you’d need to be committed to this particular flavor.

OK, but would I drink a six-pack of it?
No, but it’s not bad. I drank it fast, partly because it was fun and partly because I wanted to move on to something else.

Did it contribute to my holiday spirit?
Yes! I drank it while celebrating Hanukkah with Andy’s family. Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas, good night!

Label Notes
It’s charming, with its moon sliver in a Santa cap and casual handwritten fonts. It feels like the sign on a local hardware store or some other mom and pop place you’re afraid is going to close. 7/10
