Sweet aroma. Brown/Copper color. There was actually quite a bit going on with the flavor... Somewhat thick malty sweet... also yeasty with maybe just a hint of something peppery. Good :-)

smooth offering. Much easier to drink than many christmas ales that Iíve suffered lately. I have to say, they know how to brew beer in Covington, LA

Decent beer, pours a dark color. Aroma is flat, beer is okay and hoppy. The flavors dont meld together like they should. This isnít what i would classify as a Christmas ale but, it is no way a bad beer.

2012 A reddish ale white head. Aroma is muted with a bit of hops. The flavor is mild with a bit of bitterness. A very small hint of floral notes in the background.

beerdad (397) - Kansas, USA - MAR 6, 2011
bottled. pours amber with very little white head. aromas of malt and caramel. the flavors do not make it to the palate. taste is earthy, moderately bitter. it does not really meld. it is medium bodied with an odd bitter finish. not good.

mybrainhurts (390) - North Dakota, USA - DEC 3, 2011
Aroma of pine, citrus zest, and candied fruits. Flavors of caramel, pine, citrus, and ginger root. Green tea and ginger finish. A splash of weirdness in the spices thats hard to pinpoint. I like sugared ginger chews so this works for me. Still, a goofy beer that somehow manages to be endearing and festive.

Cajun (388) - Lafayette, Louisiana, USA - JAN 10, 2009
Bottle given to me by Boudreaux. Dark amber color with creamy white head. Notes of malty grain, caramel, fruit, slight hops. Citrus and sour biscuit dough flavors, combined with a bitter hops aftertaste. Spice and light fruit round it out. Not as watery to me, as others have suggested. Not a powerful winter brew, but not drain pour by any means. Decent.

Onionkid (376) - Fayetteville, Arkansas, USA - NOV 8, 2012
Bottle. Hoppy and caramel aroma. Similar taste. Little bit fruity and malty in the flavor as well, but overall it tastes incredibly watered down. Really bland, not a fan whatsoever. 6.1% alcohol.

Christmas 2012. Dark brown/copper color. Medium tan head. Fairly clear. Floral hop aroma. Medium body with high carbonation. Hop bitterness at the start of the flavor finishing with caramel malt. ---Rated via iPhone
