12/22/2012. 22 oz. bottle. Deep amber with a white head. Seasonal spicy aromas with malt, caramel and dark fruit. Spicy flavors with light hops and fruits. A bit of alcohol burn on the finish. Not bad.

This is one of my least favorite Hoppin’ Frog beers but its pretty solid nonetheless. The beer is surprisingly dry, but there is a really nice assortment of spices.

Interesting brew. Pours red/brown with a tan head. Aroma is spice and malt. Taste is a mix of cinnamon, nutmeg, and notes of egg nog.

heavy lacing, smelled like chai tea from Starbucks. Surprisingly light on the palate considering the overwhelming spice/cardamon/chai scent that bursts out of the glass. Still, a fun beer to drink. Best after dinner and limited to one or two. Definitely a holiday specialty.

Tap from a 1/6bbl, its a christmas ale, so I’m not very excited initially, coloring is very nice deep and warming taste is a spice lovers heaven with tons of holiday cheer packed in a glass, good malt backbone makes it a beer, and finish lingers with drying spices..

22oz bomber from Spirits Brick. Poured a cloudy orange tea brrown body with slightly more orange outer edges and an average sized foamy off off white head. Aroma and flavor are basically an overly cinnamon spiced gingerbread cookie. Palate is average but a chalky feel with stronger carbonation and a dry slightly warm finish make this one a fireside sipper. Overall I liked it a bunch.

I’m not a Christmas ale fan, however this beer is fabulous. I love the cinnamon flavor and the fact that it goes down very smooth for a darker beer.

Cinnamon, way too much cinnamon. Some medicine notes too, perhaps laqurice. Nice flavor, not so much cinnamon here. Soft sweetness. Creamy, syrupy texture and soft carbonation.
