A rich, hearty ale perfect for the holiday season with a malty sweetness and spicy hop character. The generous use of five different malts is responsible for the full flavor and high alcohol level of this beer Saint Arnold Christmas Ale is best consumed at 45° Fahrenheit.

Bonus from lb4lb. Thanks Deniz. Pours a slightly hazy reddish amber color with a large, foamy, creamy colored head. Random splotches of lacing decorate the glass. The aroma shows toasted caramel malts, lightly toasted grains, mild spices and hints of dark fruits. I also picked up a decent amount of floral hops. The flavor mostly follows suit, though the grains emerge a bit more, and it gets a little sweeter and more caramelized. Smooth and medium bodied, this one finishes with a peppery spice kick. Mouthfeel is pretty fizzy. I enjoyed this one quite a bit. Very easy to drink, and well crafted.

Courtesy of Zinister! Pours a ruby amber colour with a lively active carbonation bubbles. Fizzy off white head that dissapated to slight ring instantly. Nose of sweet syrupy candy malts, dark fruits, caramel and mild spice. Initial taste coats your mouth with a velvety syrupy sweet malt touch. The very malty character displays some caramel and strawberry artificial candy. The fizzy mouthfeel draws the flavor away. Finishing with a tangy spice and whisky warming overlay. Palate duration is average. Medium body. Overall interesting brew.

theisti (3590) - Kansas, USA - DEC 26, 2007
12 oz. bottle (inaugural batch - July 2007) from Zinister, enjoyed on Christmas Day. Pour is clear ruby brown with a smaller tan head. Visible carbonation on the pour, that stops quickly. Aroma of sweet biscuit malt, very deep - reminiscent of a Scotch Ale. Some dried fruit (raisins) in the aroma as well. Taste is full maltiness, sweet from beginning to end. Nice holiday spicy twang to the finish. Towards the end, the body of this flattened out quite a bit. Nice to see a new one from Saint Arnold, thanks Michael!

Pours a clear bronze with a tan head that dies completely. Smells sweet, candies with a little spice. Tastes of sweet malt, a little fruity with a spicy finish. Medium and smooth in the mouth with the perfect amount of carbonation. Very drinkable and delicious.

Delirium (636) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 22, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2007 Draught at the brewery. Pours dark brown with a small brown head. Aroma is sweet malt with caramel and chocolate and maybe a hint of hops. Flavor is also sweet malt with caramel, chocolate, mybe coffee, and hint of alcohol. A strong/sweet winter warmer. Pretty good.

hopdog (10284) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 18, 2007
12oz bottle acquired in trade with lb4lb (thanks!). Poured a medium to deep amber color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of caramel, toasted grains, nutty, and a trade of spiciness. Tastes of caramel, fruity, and light spice. Although I enjoyed this, this one did not strike me as a ’Christmas’ ale.

aenimopiate (176) - The United States of Texas, Texas, USA - DEC 14, 2007
Smells like apple juice(very mouthwatering), has a beautiful dark coppery color, and tastes of dark fruits and spices. Overall a pretty yummy seasonal beer from the people down in Houston.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - DEC 14, 2007
12 oz bottle from ucusty - thanks David! Pours crystal clear copper with a big, fizzy beige head - sounded like soda fizzing when I first poured it. Lots of carbonation bubbles. Somewhat spicy, nutty malt nose, some bread and cinnamon. Surprisingly sweet flavor, lots of bread, caramel and some orange. Some spicy notes - allspice? Lively mouthfeel. Very good!

mmmbeer (1342) - Austin, Texas, USA - DEC 11, 2007
12 oz bottle poured into pint glass- poured transparent light amber color, white ring around the glass for a head. Aroma of malt and yeast. Hits the mouth with a medium body, consisting of malt and some sort of spice (almost a sharp nutmeg), finish with a few mild hops. Decent sipper.
