3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a deep amber/brown. Nose was heavy with holiday spicing, lots of clove with a hint of brown sugar and cheer. Really one of the most bad ass can labels I have ever seen. Unfortunately the beer inside isnt up to par with it. There was a weird acrid off flavor I got from it, almost like burnt plastic. the spicing was spot on, and the beer was good, but whatever that chemically tasting flavor I got kind of ruined it for me.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Has a decent deep brown pour w/ a big fluffy head that leaves spotty lacing. The aroma is quite subtle w/ just a bit of dark malt standing out. The taste is a bit bitter but otherwise lacking in explosive flavor. The mouthfeel has a nice & light creamy feel & is smooth for 8%. Overall pretty average & not something Iíd go out of my way to find again!

(Bottle) Very little aroma. Astringent bitterness. A little bit of nice mealtimes. Hmm, this beer does not know what it wants to be. Not very good.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Appearance- semi clear/opaque (dark but let a little light through). Dark Amber, mahogany brown. Big bubbly mocha head that lasted a good bit. Nice lacing.
Smell- clean, malty, spices and clove. Dark chocolate.
Taste- bitter, toasted malt, spicy (and sweet).
Mouthfeel- light body (surprisingly). Smooth and creamy. Very little carbonation.
Overall- so so/ok. After seeing and smelling, the mouthfeel and taste disappointed. Was expecting more. Not a bad beer, but nothing noteworthy.
