Draft at Khyber Pass. Dark, but mostly clear, ruby pour. Decent tan head that left a lasting foam ring. Heady spicy nose. Medium red fruits. Cardamom. Nutmeg. Cinnamon. Candied ginger. Cloves. Blood oranges. Thyme. Pink peppercorns. Licorice. Vegemite. Pecans. Lavender. Barley sugar. Red beets. Celery root. Molasses. Red plums. Parsley. Lots going on. The dry spice stops it from being another sweet Christmas brew.

Pours a deep amber/ruby with a medium off white head. Aroma is spicy...cinnamon and clove...christmasy...maybe some sage? Flavor follows suit...a bit of a chocolate note...spot on for christmas beer. Mouthfeel is full and the finish is roasty and spicy. Nice.
