It does actually taste like Christmas! A lot of spices and junk in this one. But they’re not fake tasting and distracting like they are in most beers. This is my favorite Christmas beer

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Extra in a trade, vintage 2013 Murky fig juice, almost totally black in the glass. Very little head was formed. Truthfully, this smells like a peppery nutmeg dish-soap. Taste is pretty rough. Has an eggnog viscosity including eggnog like flavors of cinnamon, nutmeg, clove and yes, brandy. Sweet at the start, malty finish. Couldn’t drink more than a bottle.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at The Blue Monk. Pours a dark caramel with a thin, off white head. Aroma has some subtle notes of caramel, dark fruits, and some slight fruit and spice. Taste is slightly sweet with caramel, dark fruits, holiday spices, and a warm alcohol feeling. Medium body and carbonation. Light in the mouth with a set finish. Overall very tasty. Subtle barrel flavours with caramel, dark fruits, spices, and an easier drinking texture.

So I found this paper from a bottle share night with the pimp, DrSilverworm, and realized that I have a bunch of ratings written, but not logged. I also have some somewhere from DLD 2013 & Natifest 2013. So...maybe those will show up soon? Who really knows with me? The answer, not even me. BTW, the beer cinnamon, spice, nutmeg, and everything nice.
