Pours murky copper with a huge thick off white sticky head. Initial burst of sweet malt that fades quickly. A hint of bread at the finish.

Bottle, as pictured. Bottled October 2015. Not a bad beer, wasn’t sure what style this was going to be. Reddish-brown pour, sweet, a little roastiness, light spice. Nothing wild.

Bottle. Pours a dark copper with a fluffy white head. Aromas of sweet malt, dark fruit and hops. Flavors of caramel, dark fruit, berries, cut grass, and bready tones. Finishes with earthy hops. Clean mouthfeel. Really a very nice Christmas ale. No cinnamon. No spices. Well done.

Not bad but not great either. Doesn’t have any traits of a Christmas ale, such as spices. Meh.

12oz bottle, poured into a stout glass. Appearance is amber, light brown and clear, with a thick khaki foam head and nice lacing. Aroma is caramel malt, touch of citrusy hops. Taste is toasty, slightly nutty malt flavor, and a moderately strong bitterness. Palate is medium body with high carbonation. Overall easy to drink, i liked it for the style. Not sure why others rate so poorly considering the brewery, but it does not rate that highly for the style.

Pours murky copper with a foamy light brown head. nose is quite gentle with just a few hints of sweetness and subdued hops. Flavor is similarly week and someone sweet without a whole lot of character in any direction. overall quite disappointing.

Beer was very neutral. Seemed more like a brown than a scotch ale. Not much to say here.

Bottle. Rather disappointed. Slightly explosive when opened, overflowed and made a mess. Copper-amber in color with a nice off-white head. Aroma is notes of caramel and roasted grains. The taste however was like roasted corn. Strange is would taste that way.
