Currently I am updating my ratebeer with al the beers I drank but was too lazy to rate at the time. I give the scores I gave back than. If I drink the beers again I might re-rate them.

2014 holiday version. Plenty of spice worked well into the maltly (caramel and biscuit) ale. Itís easy to get this wrong - particularly when not done in a barley wine. But they donít. Well balanced against the sweet malt I get cinnamon and nutmeg. Evokes those holiday images a la Proust.
