looks like unfinished walnut lumber, itís a bit dull. pretty thin head Alcohol is not all that well disguised... Thereís not enough malt to mask the alcohol, and this isnít high in alcohol. Very thin brew. Hop spice is all over; pine blah blah blah... Not as warm as it is hot. Winter warmer my butt. Just another over-hopped interpretation.

Tap at Zeitgeist. This one did not impress me a ll that much. I am not sure I could tell the difference between the regular Full sail Amber and this one. It pours somewhat darker, I could not discern much of an aroma. tastes somewhat malty, hints of sugar and chocolate, but nopsices for example. Not that full bodied, all in all ok.

marcus (7452) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 3, 2006
This brown ale poured with a slight tan head, eliciting a malty aroma. The initial flavor is spicy, almost medicine-tasting, with a bitter hoppy finish. A very unique, but slightly unpleasant brew.

Bottle. Dark red brown colour with a small beige head. Light roasted malty, grassy hoppy, fruity aroma and taste. Medium body with a dusty finish.

Ungstrup (30234) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 22, 2006
A hazy nut-brown beer with a brown head. The aroma is sweet malty with a very light note of hops. The flavor is sweet with notes of caramel and quite a lot of hops, combined with light notes of licorice root, leading to a dry slightly spicy hoppy end.

Bottle. Dark reddish brown pour, with an off white head. Malty, fruit, caramel, and some bitter metallic hops in this finish. Pretty dull.

Brown with a tan head. Roasted grain and caramel aroma. Malty-nutty flavor with plenty of hop bitterness. It is like an imperial american brown ale. Festive but not very complex. A bit more residual sweetness would make this much more interesting.

Aroma is pretty sweet. Taste is on the lighter side, but has a blend of spices and malts. Overall pretty solid.

UPDATED: NOV 11, 2014 Nose is subtle so the toasty, nutty flavor surprises to the upside. Not overly complex. What there is the toastiness on a malt and subtle hops base in a pleasingly balanced offering. Assertive without being excessive. The only thing I donít like is the high ABV.

I wasnít as big a fan of this as other Christmas ales Iíve had. Thick, malty mouthfeel that constrasts with the spicy hops. Clean finish. Not too interesting.
