3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours muddy and murky brown with an overactive head. A very subtle pour resulted in a 5 finger rocky head that took way to long to calm down. Once it did the nose was ripe dark fruits and rich spices along with a bit of wood. Flavor is a bit of a let down after such a rich nose. It's sweet with a bitter finished but just doesn't excite like the nose did. Mouthfeel is crisp and oily. Long aftertaste.

This beer has some intense aromas. You can taste a strong chocolate flavour, a little roasty. It gives you some sort of warm mouthfeeling. It also has a nice dark brown color and it has a nice light brown/beige head. It has an amazing taste, a light sweet and bitter taste. Very balanced. A medium carbonization, a full body and a rather thick texture. It is overall one of the best christmas beers i’ve ever tasted.

Earlier Rating: 1/5/2010 Total Score: 2.9
Dark brown color with a small tan head that settles quickly and leaves minimal lacing.
Aroma of cinnamon and malt.
Flavor of dark roasted malt and caramel, pretty simple and straightforward.
Body is on the thin side, unexpected for the style.
Average sort of beer, nothing special. There are definitely better Christmas beers than this.
