Once upon a frozen evening way up north, a sweet local honey named Holly inspired our Jolly Fat Man (as only Holly can) to create this festive spiced holiday ale. We think you will enjoy his holiday creation with itís aromas and flavors of Christmas day. Sweet malt, ginger, honey and cinnamon spice. Sip this by the fire with your significant other. Who knows, maybe it will lead to a little inspiration of your own. From our Jolly Fat Man to yours, Happy Holidays.

Honey and soft ginger aroma. Pretty amber color, thick beige head. Sugary maltiness at first with plenty of honey sweetness. Ginger follows and there is some lingering, tingling cinammon on the tongue. Medium-full body, smooth and creamy. Very good.

Pours a clear dark brown/copper with a medium off white head. Somewhat earthy fall aroma with some sweet notes from the honey and a slight nutty hints. This beer really tastes like christmas. It has just the right sweet and bitter. You can feel the spices in the medium body and clean texture. Very clean finish that is almost cinnomon with a hint of sweetness. This is a very good Christmas ale. I hope they donít change a thing.
