COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This festive ale calls to mind the holiday season with scents of spruce and ginger mingling with the flavors of orange-spiced break and is the perfect complement to a frosty evening.

Local Belmont bottle. This was pretty nice overall. Maybe a little heavy and darker than expected. The ginger really added some spice to it as well. Fine.

Enjoyed this although it is on the light side for an ale. Nice combination of spices.

Bottle. Gifted. Malt and light hop presence. A little bitter, pretty sweet. Spice and cinnamon/sugar. Pine, ginger definitely. Not bad. Good winter ale, could be a session beer, but the sweetness is too much for me

Bottle thanks to DrSilverworm. Murky dark brown pour with a small head that fades to a ring and leaves some lacing. Aroma is mostly winter spices with some caramel and red fruit mixed in. Tastes like ginger, cinnamon, allspice, caramel, apples, and dark fruit. Not as overly spiced as some winter ales but it’s still a little more than I’d like. Medium body. Decent winter ale.

Pours reddish brown with a tan head. Smells of caramel, roses. Tastes of sweet malt, some spicy hints, nutty. Not much going on.

12 oz bottle from Belmont Party Supply, Dayton, OH. Poured a nice amber/red color. Nice flavor for a seasonal beer. I probably should have had it a bit colder then what I did. Good herb flavors. Nice winter beer. Mt. Carmel has a few good offerings out there.
