COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This copper-colored ale is crafted with roasted malts, Belgian sugar, and a touch of wheat for a rich caramel flavor and a smooth toffee finish.

Pours a ruby/amber color with a nice fluffy tan head. Aroma is a bit lacking but what you can get is yeasty with faint Christmas spices. Flavor is malty sweet, candied sugar, Christmas spices, maybe raisins. Overall an ok beer for a massed produced beer. Looks like it has bigger flavor than it actually does.

This beer pours a dark amber liquid with a small head. the smell is dried fruits and brown sugar. The tast is malty, with some carmel and fruit in a medium-light body. The finish is a bit of sweetness swirled into toasty coffee and malt. Not long in the aftertaste but a very pleasant beer.

GirlyBeer (190) - Old Orchard Beach, Maine, USA - DEC 28, 2010
Hazy deep copper color with a thin tan head. Almost untraceable grain aroma. Roasty and toasty grains with a sugary taste and a metalic hop finish. Sweet sticky, medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, cloyingly sweet. Some sort of spice that stings the toungue. The fact that they added sugar and say so in the label is a bad sign to me. Theyre not lying, you can taste the sugar... OR you could just make a better beer.

spicy hoppy smell. Nice head that dissipates fairly quickly. dark brown appearance with hardly any carbonation. light body, much lighter than youd expect for a beer this dark and a bit of a sticky stale aftertaste. Pretty boring overall, Id choose it on $0.50-bottle night.

No aroma. Thin, whispy head, little to no flavor. Another. Overrated beer. The color may be the saving grace.

This beer fills me up. I find the sugar note pleasant. It is easy-drinking if not very remarkable. I dont ever pair this with food. I buy a case when it comes out yearly.

Has a reddish amber colour. The aroma is mostly sweet and caramel malty. Its pretty disappointing, even though I only bought a single bottle.

Nice color, malty and sweet. Aftertaste lingers unwelcomely. Sort of disappointed that there are two more in the pack. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 pack from bro earlier this year; finally down to my last one which to rate. Pours a dark bronze with a tan head. Decent aroma and taste; not a bad winter ale but there are better ones.
