4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber. Pours a deep amber color with a solid layer of tan foam and bubbles. Aroma is a blend of caramel, citrus peel, pine resin and toasted malts. The flavor opens up with lots of caramel malt, grapefruit rind and pine along with some brown sugar, tropical fruit and citrusy alcohol notes. The body is mildly creamy with moderate carbonation and more caramel, malt and booze in the finish. Overall, an enjoyably well-rounded Holiday Ale.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
660 ml bottle, brewed on 07/26/2013
Copper-reddish clear beer with big blonde head leaving lacing on the glass. Aroma is heavily sweet with caramelly malts, dark bready malts, piney hops and some spiciness. Flavor has sweet caramel, salty licorice and piney hops plus some wood. Palate is full and soft. Finishes with a smoothly fading bitterness, leaving licoricy aftertaste with heat of alcohol. Maybe this would be better in fresher form, but good for slow sipping.

Despite the promise of the description, it’s quite a forgettable beer. Just a strong red ale, with some artificial fruits. Meh.

Bottle. Unclear copper body, creamy white head. Tropical aroma with vanilla, pine, toffee. Taste adds honey to the toffee and tropical hops, and a slightly spicy twist. Clear presence of bitterness even though it has a thick sweet palate. Sharp hoppy finish with a lasting warm aftertaste. This is a tremendous christmas beer.
