The chill of a Colorado high-country winter calls for a beer with extra flavor and strength. Here it is. At over 7% alcohol, with a sturdy texture and rich flavors of caramel and chocolate, our holiday seasonal is the fermented equivalent of a good fire.
The ultimate winter warmer.
Available: November-December

Ruby brown pour, small off white head. Aroma is very bready, very malty, soft caramels, subtle cherry, and dark fruit notes. Soft carb, soft mouthfeel. Soft grassy hops, more bready malts, reminds me alot of an english strong ale.

Fell a little flat on the finish, and the spice notes are definitely more subtle than other cams ales. Good overall ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a three-finger khaki head that fades quickly to a thin layer leaving some lace. Chrystal clear amber color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Very light caramel and malty nose and flavor is toasted malt, light spices. Slight drying finish. The 12oz bottle was a gift.

Had this on tap poured into a pint glass. Pours a nice off brown color. The aroma of Christmas spices are not overpowering. A great christmas beer!

lownote (528) - Austin, Alabama, USA - NOV 20, 2015
Muted malt sweet aroma. Taste is copper malt flavored which is not my thing but it’s not too abrasive. Really like the spices which are pretty gentle. Red copper color with a bit of white head. Clear. Thinnish body.

Bottle. Caramel malt, hay, and alcohol aroma. Dark amber with light tan head. Sweet caramel malt, moderate herbal hay, and alcohol flavor. Nice body. Bonus points for no spices.
