Bottle from Chevy Chase Wine and Liquors. Sure, a bit late for Christmas beer. But enjoyable nonetheless. Copper body with large head. Nose is floral, malty. Taste fruits, spices. Creamy texture. Good finish.

Bottle to tulip glass. Alcohol and grainy malt. Moderate floral aroma. Clear honeycomb and full white head that leaves quickly. Taste us a little oxidized.

katrinaez (1185) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 11, 2015
Raisin sweet aroma with some musk and wood scents. Ale is standard but had the very light spice of a Xmas style. Not bad, not amazing. Good and in bottle.

Bottle from Total Wine bought during the holidays. finally got to it. Pours a golden amber with a small head. Aroma is malty caramel and breads. A hint of apples and pears. Slight spice. Finishes matly and a hint of bitterness. Medium mouth, weird aftertaste. It is OK.

Not a bad beer but perhaps too light for an strong ale, similar to a malty beer with some hops and perhaps orange or spices notes.

tnkw01 (1707) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 26, 2014
Bottle. Very over priced for such a bad beer. Color was copper in color with a nice head. Aroma was pickled barley. Taste, straw, very bitter but the nasty kind of bitter.

onceblind (6915) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 24, 2014
Slightly hazy dark copper with a big sticky sweet nose, toffee and fig pudding. Nice earthy and mellow sweet flavor with toffee and dry biscuit. Finished a bit watery with English toffee malt. Decent and sweet but not memorable.
