Prufrockstar (1860) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 27, 2012
Bomber, 2010 vintage. Pours dark amber, small off white head. Aroma is crystallized caramel. Toffee, honey, a hint of citrus. Taste: muted sweetness, crisp and hop bitterness (but not overpowering). Caramel and alcohol. Palate: lively carbonation, full-bodied. Overall: this comes together nicely, though I think I prefer my Christmas sipping beer to have more sweetness and a less assertive hop bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle from Tavour. Maritime Pacific Jolly Roger Christmas Ale is cloudy red brown beer with a thin head of white bubbles. Nose is sweet molasses just a touch of hops and cereal.

Poured from a bottle. Pours a cloudy brown with an orange hue. Smell starts with dark fruits, maybe some fig or dates, followed by a bit of vanilla and some smokiness. Flavors start with sweet malts, some honey, then drift in a smokier direction with nuttiness and some spice on the end. Feel is medium with a little carbonation. Overall a nice winter warmer, would be nice to have sitting next to a fire.

DYCSoccer17 (3603) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 22, 2015
14 ounce on tap at Sharps Roasthouse near Seatac. The aroma is a little metallic with light caramel and toffee hints. Mildly hazy amber body with a strong yellowish head present. Starts with just a sweet barrage of malts. I get a lot of caramel malts primarily with a little nuttiness behind. Fairly sweet throughout. Easy drinking, and alcohol is well hidden.

WABeerFiend (380) - - JAN 20, 2015
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a beer can glass on 12.02.14. A: Dark fruit, raisin, and cherry. Itís sweet smelling. A: Some fizz for a head. Opaque purple/dark red body. T: Raisin and fig newton dominate. Cherry, allspice, a tiny bitter sting on the back end, and a slight woodiness are subtle. P: Crisp with a bubbly finish. Itís refreshing and surprisingly lighter than other winter warmers. O: This has a mulled cider quality. The spices take the edge off the sweetness, so itís balanced. This is a favorite.
