pours a murky orange brown color with minimal head, aromas of floral hops, dark fruit, and a fruity alcohol like aroma. the taste is pretty dry, iím picking up some dark fruit mostly raisins, it has a mild sweetness to it and a bitter finish. This was my first boulevard, Itís not bad.

Pours a cloudy amber with tan one finger head. Spiciness up front which leads to a nice malty, hoppy finish. Hats off to Boulevard for another high quality brew. Try it!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a somewhat hazy darker amber with a medium sized beige head. Aroma is mostly spicy with some fruity impressions, being apple, orange, and berries. Some caramel notes as well. The taste is a very nice combination of the fruits and caramel malt. It isnít to fruity as to render this undrinkable, but an almost perfect balance. I get a taste almost like a caramel apple. I also get a touch of sweet toffee underneath. Medium bodied with some softer carbonation. There is a bit of tartness at the end here as well. I donít really get the impression that this is a Christmas beer, but thats ok. I enjoyed this.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tastes and smells spicy, fruity, woody. Maybe a little "boozy" -- at least more than I would have expected for a 6% beer. A lot of spice at first, with malt and hop flavor really coming through in the finish. Thereís a lot going on here; but itís all fairly well-balanced. One of those beers in which the first sip is quite a bit different from the last.
