A little stronger then the regular Scaldis, at 12.5% abv, and a bit darker too. Not a bad Christmas ale, but I've had quite a few better, including Corsendonk and of course Gouden Carolus. It was a nice Christmas night treat, right before bed, relaxing and looking at the lights on the tree, contemplating the ungodly amount of money we just spent on two kids, and the ungodly destruction they created in our house with their new loot. But it was all worth it. And so was the price for this Scaldis, even if it wasn't the best. It certainly has the nicest label.
