At the French Market. Lovely stuff. Rich fruity ale, slightly spiced but not overly so, like a brown ale but with more boozeiness. Serving: Tap

Bottle. A- Malty, alcohol, subtle spice, caramel. A- Deep mahogany color, clear liquid, tan head. T- Malty, slight citrus, slight spice, subtle caramel, toasty, floral, slightly bitter, alcohol. P- Medium body, thin texture, average carbonation, malty finish. O- Was a little disappointed with this one. Didn’t get really anything I was expecting from it or at least it was all very subtle. Mostly malty and a little underwhelming, but the color was gorgeous.

An ok winter ale. Not balanced very well. Pours a beautiful deep red with a super thick tan head. Smells of cherries and caramel. Taste however is quite hoppy, with a bit of Malts in the finish. Tasted at the BevMo Holiday Beer Fest.

Draught. Smells sweet and malty, with hint of hops. Color is reddish brown. Taste is a balance of sweet and bitter, but sweet soon fades and leaves hop bitterness to linger.

loubar (50) - Los Gatos, California, USA - NOV 11, 2014
12 oz. bottle from Whole Foods. The nose hints of floral hops and malt. The taste is hoppy with a distinct citrus bitterness on a rich malt base that makes for a bold flavor. There’s a subtle spiciness amid the richness with a hint of cloves just to remind that it is, after all, a holiday ale. Not skunky. Fairly dry, with the grapefruit bitterness lingering after the finish. Overall, a surprise I must say, a good surprise...

Malty. Mildly sweet. Hints of holiday spices. Mild tartness. Not bad. Some hop present too.
