Our Holiday Ale that combines different spices with complex malt flavors and medium hop bitterness. Medium bodied. The spices can vary from year to year. Deep red in color. This is also a strong ale that’s referred to as a “Winter Warmer”.
The 2010 version is dry spiced with vanilla and cinnamon.

brokensail (16057) - Dublin, California, USA - DEC 28, 2012
Hazy brown pour with a khaki head. Nice spice note of all spice, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Hints of vanilla, caramel, some banana, dark fruit, and a very mild roasted malt aroma. The flavor is nicely spicy with nutmeg and cinnamon notes. A bit of banana, dark fruit sweetness, caramel, toffee, and a mild roasted malt character.

BMan1113VR (7917) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JAN 22, 2011
On tap at the Calabasas location. Pours with a deep and hazed garnet/brown body with a minimal off-white head. Aromas of vanilla, buttered toast, cinnamon, caramel and marzipan. Flavors of gingerbread, molasses, cinnamon, sticky, vanilla, and a bitter/burnt toast note. Some biscuity flavors accompanied by diacetyl (light). Light bubbles and a bit of a syrupy mouthfeel. On the sweet side of things.

emagana (38) - Fillmore, California, USA - MAR 23, 2010
Pours a brown dark color. Aromas of spices and earth. Smoke malts? Starts of smooth and the flavors begin to burst. Hints of cinnamon and nutmeg. A lingering after taste that compliments the beer. Again smooth. Great beer

beerbill (3605) - Laurel, New York, USA - DEC 14, 2009
Growler courtesy of a trade with paiste2002. Pours dark brown that allows no light to pass with a reddish tint along the edges. Thin tan head that lasted through the first two sips and left bits of lace. Pleasant aroma of vanilla and some mild spice. The flavor is vanilla again with some mild spice. There is some very mild roasted malt in the flavor as well. The flavors marry well together and no single trait dominates. Mild-moderate bitterness at the finish.

paiste2002 (186) - Saugus, California, USA - JAN 27, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 21, 2009 Tap at the pub. Pours dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma is vanilla and spice, cinnamon, all spice maybe even some star anise. Flavor is vanilla, spices, cinnamon, allspice star anise some spruce in the finish. Overall this is a very nice winter offering, but for the most part it’s the same beer every year. I’d like to see it changed up from year to year. Being the only brewpub worth mentioning in our community it would be nice to see the brewer take a few chances.

homeslice (36) - , California, USA - JAN 7, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2009 Tap At Brewery. Heavy Dark brown w/ slight red highlight. Grey small top. Smells of cherries, wood, and caramel, cinnamon, nutmeg, like spicey winter potpourri. Quick bite of pine and spices, not sweet and fruity like other winter brews. Unique.

omhper (23711) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - DEC 18, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 23, 2008 Draught at the brewpub. Mahogany colour, minimal head. Aroma of nutmeg and ginger. Sweet, medium-full bodied with caramelly malt and clean mouthfeel. Woody and piney with salty finish. Solid.

Charlzm (246) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 10, 2007
Consumed on tap at brewery 12/10/07. Very dark brown, no lacing, minimal head. No active carbonation. No aroma to speak of. Nutmeg and cinnamon mix mildly with yeast flavors. No bitterness, no aftertase. Unremarkable.
