3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma: Fantastically fragrant nice notes of toasty wheat, floral hops, slight under tones of spice, choclate and a sweet soda like flavor.
Appearance: Deep rich amber with a descent pale tan foam
Taste: Deep rich full all with balance of hops and sweet malt notes, it is broken up from being overly heavy with notes sweet caramel.
Overall: Fantastic and with rather local distribution and a seasonal availability I say grab a sixer spark up a nice fire and grab a friend get toasty while getting toasted on a cold day.

There are no faults be n this beer, but there is nothing outstanding that makes truly one of a kind. Instead you get a great beer with a perfect balance of malt and spice that perfect for the holidays season

Aroma, flavor, malt, sweet, alcohol, ummm. I prefer hoppy beers, but this malty Christmas beer is very tasty.

Pours a clear darker copper color with off-white head. Some spice, cereal and bread, and citrus on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with more malt character.

Bottle - Pours a clear amber with a smallish head. Aromas of caramel, malts and a=something astringent. Taste is malt forward with some orange and light spice notes and then some bitterness. Not really a Christmas beer in my book, and so good overall.

Draft at the United Club at IAH. Pours a clear, copper color with a very thin, white head. Sweet aroma with some spice. Hoppiness in the background. Smooth taste. Some spice bite. Little bit of hops mixed with malt Pretty decent beer. Especially for the United Club.

bottle. deep amber with small head. malty with some caramel and toffee. light holiday spice. very smooth with a bit of a dry finish. this is another beer that’s better than the sum of it’s parts. flavors meld very well.

Ah, what to say about this beer... Went well with my Christmas dinner (not just because I had an open mind either). Thinking of brewing up a clone for the holiday season myself

Dark amber color head dissapears fast. Aroma malts fresh and earthy. Faint spices of some kind. Nice hop taste on the tounge bitter finish. Has some balls to it. Chewy mouth feel kind of a cross between anchor steam and bass ale...fairly interesting
