A nice Christmas beer., Not a huge fan of this genre to begin with, but it did get me in the holiday spirit (even though it’s still a week away from Thanksgiving). Aroma and taste were the same. All spices. Cinnamon, allspice, ginger and pine. Not sure if pine is in there or not, but tasted/smelled like it. Nice carbonation. Decent beer that I could drink one of during the holidays but that’s it.

From a 12 oz bottle. Pours a fairly clear cola with an off white head. Aroma of cloves, cinnamon and orange. Hints of toffee and raisin. Warming and slightly bitter finish.

tgncc (2664) - Bellmore, New York, USA - NOV 17, 2013
The aroma is spices, caramel backbone. The appearance is clear deep ruby, white head. The flavor is spices, like nutmeg, cinnamon, orange peel, mint, clove, kitchen sink, etc, some caramel. The finish is purely spices, slight burn Interesting, if a bit of a "done before" feel Medium in body, slightly thick. Good overall. Definitely Christmas-y in spirit.

Christmas spices waif from the glass. The pour is clear ruby red like a Christmas ball. The flavor has a nice warmth for Christmas eve. Perfect for Santa would be a pint and some hot wings, that is what I will tell my kids anyway.

Another surprise here. On draft at the Thirsty Monk in Asheville. Pours light ruby with a beige head. Nose is spice of Christmas cookies: cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, clove, perhaps cardamom and coriander. Usually this is not a good mix for me, but this one works. Tastes like a Christmas cooking, replete with icing. Who knew?
