Pours a bright transparent copper with a finger-width high clingy light tan head. Has a sweet sugary caramel and cinnamon aroma. Body starts with some sticky caramel malty sweetness revealing some nice ginger spice and some piney citrusy hops toward the bittersweet finish. A nice and balanced holiday beer. Thanks to bkelley68 and jsquire for the bottles!

What is that flavor? Corriander? I think its that. Very mulchy tasting. Spicy, some cinnamon. Lemon peelish. Thin mouthfeel, very watery which I didnt like so much. Bitter end.

RooftopRogue (423) - Champaign, Illinois, USA - JAN 2, 2006
This beer entices the sense of smell with a fragrance consisting of honey, cinnamon, and nuts. This beer fills the glass with tawny-rose colored solution that resides under thick cream soda colored head. This beer is thick and smooth and flows through the mouth well. The taste is a grainy honey sensation that has hints of clove and all-spice in the background. The sweet taste turns a tad bitter as it tickles the throat on the way to the tummy.

Pours a slightly reddish amber color with a medium sized white head. Aroma is of spicy ginger snaps,nutmeg, cinnamon and honey. Taste is kind of bland with slight hints of ginger,nutmeg and cinnamon. Not a big fan of these types of ales. Good, but not great.

Not a bad brew, but has a strange aftertaste that I cannot place. Goes down ok, has a decent aroma - fair for a Christmas Ale.

Was expecting more from this ale. It is a very expensive beer but does not deliver what you are expecting. Has a nice sweet taste but was not as full as I would have liked.

Bottle. A very nice example of a Christmas ale. Spicy nose was very present. Poured reddish brown with a small beige head. Flavor was a blend of spice and alcohol. I really recommend a nice wide mouth glass to take advantage of the aroma.

Thanks to hopdog. Pours a translucent golden orange with a small off white lacing head. Aroma of honey, ginger, cinnamon, light alcohol and some other spices. Flavor of the same, kind of like the aroma a bit more.
