[edit] Commercial Examples

Corsendonk Christmas Ale
A Belgian Strong Ale brewed by Du Bocq. Very nice Christmas brew. Aroma is intense with dark fruits, wine and smoked malts along with a heavy dose of salty liquorice. Flavour is strong alcoholic and warming, again with both complex malts and fruits. nice. (anonymous)

[edit] Competition Styles

Neither the BJCP nor the GABF style guidelines recognize a separate style; however, most commercial examples would fall into one or more other styles as well.
