3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear dark copper with a sticky earthy dark nose of molasses and peat wood. Flavor is initially a bit sweet and cinnamony with a fast-fading flavor. Kinda medium-light all around. Just a generic sweetness with a dry finish and very light holiday spices.

Sampled on tap at Crazy Mountain on 12/27/12. Pours a copper color with white head. Spice, cinnamon, nutmeg flavors. This holiday beer was medium bodied, but it would have been nice if it had a bigger body to it.
