A nice mahoganny brown ale with a thin off white head. A nice aroma of cinamon, cloves and sweet candy sugar, intense. Light cinnamon and caramel malt, not too cloying, sustained nuttyness. Medium bodied. On tap at brewpub, Jan. 2009.

<b>In short: </b>A spicy and sweet amber ale. Well done but just not my thing.
<b>How: </b>Tap at brewpub. First batch ever (winter 2008)
<b>The look: </b>Clear amber body topped by a very small beige head
<b>In long: </b>Rather spicy nose with notes of cinnamon, gingerbread man and such. Taste is mostly sweet and spicy. Graham cookies dipped in fresh honey, some caramel, sugar cane and a whole lot of spices. The leafy hops provide a much welcomed distraction. Overall it is what it claims to be, a spicy honeyed Christmas beer. I think it is very well made but that of beer turns me one like my grandma cleavage.

Tap at the Brewpub: (Labeled as Brassin de Noel - 6% ABV) Pours a deep rusty copper with a thick tan head that laces. Lots of chai-like character in the aroma- cinnamon, toffeee, perhaps a touch of diacetyl, but it worked here. Dense creamy carbonation-medium bodied. Candied malts come through in the taste with notes of honey and lots of spice, chai-like chracter with some spicy cinnamon at the back. Some ginger becomes detectable as it warms. A pretty nice spice beer. (This is listed as a Brown Ale now, but I believe it was a spice beer)
