Doesn’t live up to the quality of some other boulevard brews. Didn’t get the molasses. I did taste some sweetness that I atribute to apricot or pear, maybe. I’ll admit I’m a hard sell on some of the seasonal ales!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draft. It’s got a fruity-sweet aroma that was pretty unexpected, along with some hop. Thin head with a dark brownish-red color. It’s got a bit of the alcohol flavor you’d expect from a winter warmer, as well as some piney hop flavors that linger nicely. Overall a very nice, slightly more hop-forward winter warmer.

Pours dark amber with beige creamy head, decent lacing. Aroma is mostly roast malt with a touch of winter spice, taste is more of the malt, some sharp hops and a little spice to provide some bite. Nice winter ale.

Rated on 12-08-2009. When poured, this beer forms a medium sized frothy, fizzy ivory head with a short retention, hazy amber body, fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and virtually no lacing. The Aroma is spicy, pine citrus, and grapefruit hops. The Taste is bitter, citrus hops and mildly spicy. This beer is light-medium bodied. Overall, this beer is quaffable, not overly spicy or hoppy tasting and is worth trying.

On tap @ Provisions Market. Dark amber/brown pour with a khaki head. Aromas of caramel, toast, and cinnamon. Some nutmeg, a touch of booze, and spicy hops. Flavor is on the sweet side. Lots of caramel and toast and brown sugar. Nutmeg, cinnamon, and maybe ginger(bread). Kind of bitter, surprisingly. Floral and spicy hops. Just okay.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Solid cloudy amber/brown pour with a thin layer of offwhite head. Strong aroma of carmel and spruce pitch, some floral hops too, very smooth smelling. Average carbonation, tingly mouthfeel, finish a bit dry. Flavor of big malt, mostly carmel, pine and floral hops and a hint of cranberry or something. Good IPA that’s a bit in your face, hefty on both hops and malt, carmel and christmas-y holly flavors are unique and blend to smell and taste similar ot a fresh christmas tree.
