A greatly forward winter ale. Nice sweet malty flavor with a hint of spicy hops. Favorite Chris's ale so far this year. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A pretty high ABV, seasonal brew. I actually think it tastes a bit stronger bottled versus tap. Something to look forward to every winter!

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

Brownish-redish color. Nice flavor. Nicely balance. Very malty indeed. A great winter warmer.

Just picked up a sixer from the Christmas in July release. Pours a light head - about 1/2 finger. Smell is subtle - spicy , some clean hops. Taste. nice and slippery in the mouth. I can taste the spice (nutmeg?). Wonderful moutfeel. just the right amount of carbonation. Drinkability. This beer is dangerous. Extremely easy drinking for an 8% abv. Quite an interesting beer to drink in the summertime -- when it’s 105 outside. A nice break from the hop monsters that I usually crave in the summer. Serving type: bottle

Not much on the nose for me, but makes up for it with taste. The rich, golden-brown color somehow enhances the flavor for me. Not bad!

Bought a bottle from Wilburs too. The color is a nice amber. Not much aroma, but what little it has is slightly tart. The flavor is pretty weak too. I dont get anything Christmas here, just another mehtastic ambery beer. Maybe I have a mishandled bottle?

Glad to see a local brew do well. Not too spicy, but not bland or flat. Has a nice sweet hint to it and a nice dark color.

I like this Christmas Ale.. 7% Alc. hidden well. Deep caramel pour with a light head. Smell the cherry, spices, and prunes. Great hearty flavor..Taste the MALTS!!!! Great winter beer for holiday parties.. Leaves almost a tarish feeling on palate. Makes you drink more.. Yes I like it...
