22 oz bottle. Clear amber brown with a spongy beige head. Nose is quite spicy with cinnamon stick, nutmeg, clove and brown sugar. Creamy medium body with brisk carb. Taste is toasted grains and coconut, caramel and same spices. Tasty and easy drinking with just enough spice.

Pours redish to light brown color with smells of sweet candi malts and tastes of caramel. very sweet. Lightly carbonated and drinks very easily. We mixed this with an Imperial Black Mocha Stout and that was an experience! If you have never do it and can get the beers, do it.

09 batch. Deep rich ruby amber color, frothy beige head. Aroma of toffee, creamy marshmallow, nut. Taste is sweet caramel with some hint of dark chocolate, not getting too much spice. Rich creamy texture, medium carbonation. Lingering roast and hop spice finish.

my nose is a little stuffed up. dark reddish pour with a small head that dissipates quickly leaving fhead clumps on the side of the glass. Tastes of strong vanilla, some cinnamon, and a few other holiday type spices.. and kind of tastes like bubble gum. very drinkable. a good winter seasonal thats refreshing in the hot florida weather.

redlight (2317) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 13, 2010
cask @ redlight redlight. Malty caramel nose with hints of vanilla, with hints of a spice in the aroma as well. Pours a hazy caramel amber with a thick white head. Smooth vanilla and caramel malts, with hints of nutmeg and maybe traces of something like cardamom, not sure i can’t place it. Its very smooth with a creamy flavor. Very nice!

Teege (375) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 12, 2010
Draft at redlight redlight. Pours a dark amber with an off-white head. Lots of nutmeg in the nose. Hints of cinnamon. Nice warm, wintry, coffee-cake aroma. The flavor exhibits these notes fairly well although a lot of malt comes through and covers some of the subtler layers. All said and done, it hits the spot on a cold winter night.

Impressed, the best thing I have had from Highland. A little different for a winter ale. Medium bodied. Mostly malt with light cinnamon spiciness. Few hops. Not bitter, but not too sweet. Low carbonation, highly drinkable.

on tap at redlight redlight, pours hazy light brown with a medium off white head. Oaky aroma with some biscuit and bready notes. Flavor is nice and malty with some light cocoa and vanilla. Very nice Chirstmas beer.
