Merry Christmas indeed! Dark amber with a small tan head. Smells and tastes like Christmas with cinnamon and other spices complimenting caramel malt and maybe even a touch of pine. Or maybe that was just the Christmas tree.

Bottle sampled at a beer share -- A very nice spiced beer. Great Aromatics, the spices don’t overpower the beer.

Bottle thanks to Kevin. Pours a dark amber with small beige head that diminishes quickly. The aroma is spice, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Medium mouthfeel with light spice and cinnamon, hides alcohol well, good.

Dark brown pour with an off-white head. The aroma has some big cinnamon notes as well as some nutmeg and toffee. The flavor is similar. I get some caramel and cocoa notes as well as some cinnamon. There is also a bit of vanilla in the aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Another very interesting beer from 5 Stones. So happy to have these guys in the Texas brewing scene.
