A traditionally Spiced ale. Made with fruits and nuts typically found in the German-style yeast risen fruit cake. Red in color, full in body, and exhibits a slightly sweet finish.

Bottle to snifter (shared with the wife; thanks mikem409). Looks good; an almost completely opaque reddish-brown with thin off-white lacing. Smells of malt and fruitcake. Tastes like it smells with a nice, clean finish. Drinks easier than 9% too. My wife and I both enjoyed this one (and I don’t even like fruitcake).

UPDATED: OCT 30, 2014 Bottle from Winter Soltice. Pours a very murky dark ruby color with no head. Aroma is a mix of cherry cough syrup, caramelized sugar, and bread. Taste is big on cherry cough syrup. Sugary sweet and a slightly boozy finish. Medium body, somewhat sticky mouthfeel. Not bad but not exactly good either. Re-rate 10/23/14 - Bottle almost 2 years old now. Thanks Tammy! Taste and smell no longer come off like cough syrup. Still sugary sweet but in a good way. Packed with fruit cake and light booze. Alot better now than fresh. Original rate was 6/3/6/4/12.

A bizarre tasting brew that does indeed bring to mind fruitcake. Not a huge fan of it.

bottle from ’12 winter solstice. The pour is a little strange. A very hazy brownish color. Almost has a blue hue to it. Also has tons of stuff floating in it. The aroma has a bunch of fruit, with a hint of vinegar. The taste is a little thin, but yummy. An unusual beer, but tasty and something very different from a normal christmas beer. I get the punch reference earlier.

Dogbrick (8950) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 22, 2012
Sample at the brewpub. This beer is a hazy brownish-orange color with a medium beige head that recedes steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Spicy aroma of coriander and anise with some malt in the background. Medium body with a sweet spice character and flavors of malt, pine and fruit. The finish is sweet with a lingering spice aftertaste. Above average overall.

On tap at Kuhnhenn Winter Solstice Night Two. Brown and lacey. Citrus and ginger. A big nose of spices. Some sugar. A sipper, yet drinkability assured. Nothing like any xmas beer head before.

deyholla (7449) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 21, 2011
On tap at the 2011 Kuhnhenn’s Winter Solstice. Pours a hazy rusty amber with a light brown head that dissipates quickly and nearly completely. Aroma is full of spice and fruitcake with a strong stollen backing note. Flavor begins with lots of spice and is joined by bread, grains and fruitcake which is a bit odd. Overly spiced.
