An interesting beer. A sipper, couldn't drink a whole lot. Lots of cherry and chocolate, some ginger. Not much hopping. A tad sweet for me . But interesting.

From a bottle thanks to Brent. Pours a very dark ruby amber to brown. Thin tan head that persists. Aroma is nutmeg and cinnamon and spices. Place is all of the nice with sweet malt and dark fruits. Slightly bitter. As holiday ales go this one is drinkable. But I hate holiday ales almost without exception. Yuck.

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2013 Smells a bit off but the flavor is pretty solid. Sweet, fruity, spices with a subtle and slightly tart finish. I can dig it.

12oz bottle from Sean who sent me a HUGE box of crazy beer for nothing. Dude is nutz! Pours a deep brown to black with thin tan head. Aroma is fruit, spice and some roasted malt. Cherry really. Taste is again more of a light brown ale with some fruit. Cherry, cinnamon, liquor, candy. The fruit on this is really big and comes through more than the spices for sure. Nice Christmas ale I could drink next to the fire.

Decent beer. Had it in The Tasting Room on tap. Poured a dark dark brown color. Not much of a smell. Tastes of cinnamon and spice, a little ginger. It’s a good beer for the winter time. You can def get the Christmas taste from it.

Bottle. Light brown, cloudy color with minimal head. Aroma is muted spice, sweetness, and mild fruit. Taste is subtle mix of spice and malt, with no hop character to mention. Mouthfeel is smooth. Not to bad for a mild drinkable holiday beer.
