UPDATED: DEC 12, 2014 Aroma disappointing. Appearance red brown nice. Taste hoppy with caramel tones. Palate good Christmas flavour. Warming but given strength a disappointment. Second pint much better. Good on palate. Aroma still weak getting better.

Very enjoyable! Initial aroma is of fruit. The first taste is very complex and gets better as you drink it. Excellent hop/malt balance. Wonderful stuff. Thanks to Joe (user_experience) for hooking me up with this.

Just finished up the 2003 Anchor and moved on to this. Actually I'm going to lower my rating of the Anchor a bit, because at the end, it was too dry, young, bitter and harsh. This one is kind of the same style as Anchor, but more toned down and more balanced. Aroma is more of a sweet malt rather than all spice. Palate might be a little more watery, but is maltier at the same time. Finish is a little spicy, but a little boring. It's easier to drink than the Anchor.

Bottle. Ruby brown with beige head. Aromas of toffee, citrus, spice, pine, leather. Flavors of toffee, nutmeg, citrus, leather, tobacco. Slightly sweet finish. Hop forward. Medium body with slightly foamy mouthfeel and moderate-high, sharp carbonation.

Pours deep brown, almost black, from a bottle; nice aroma of malts and hops together. Nice flavor that is suitable for the season; caramel malts with a hoppy punch. Better than the other 2 I’ve had from Full Sail ,the IPA and the Pale Ale.

dark clear brown with a neat looking khaki head. nice spicy flavor and aroma. finishes piney and surprisingly bitter but not in an ipa way. nutmeg and cinnamon spicy stuff in there to remind you its a christmas beer. id really like to taste it without the holiday spices, but ill take what i can get.

My first beer of the night. Damn this is good. Aroma of bittering hops, chocolate malt, dust. Flavor is roasted barley, peanut shells, some coffee-ish flavors but not too intense, just right. Drying finish, good bittering hops. Really great beer.
