doublebock (558) - California, USA - AUG 14, 2007
Cloudy orange appearance, sweet nose. Malty taste with orange peel. Piney blandish aftertaste. 28%??? Naw, the sweet maltiness deserves a better rating though it does not have the spicycomplexity of a xmas ale.

Medium brown color with a small off-white head and no lacing. Malty and fruity aroma. Flavor is sour and malty. Spices/herbs don’t seem to blend well.

CaptainCougar (7634) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 2, 2007
Bottle sampled on 1/21/07: Pours a hazy copper brown with a thin, spotty-lacing off-white head. Sweet honeyed wheat aroma has a hint of cherries and earthy hops. Body starts fairly full with a hint of pale malty sweetnes, some light earthy bitterness and a faint touch of seasonal spice. Overall pretty weak in flavor and bland.

beerbill (3618) - Laurel, New York, USA - APR 19, 2007
12 oz. bottle. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a moderate head that faded away after a few minutes. Very light aroma of malt and caramel. Almost immediately, there is a dry bitterness that kicks in, but the beer itself lacks any flavor. A bit thin. Disappointing.

Surprisingly tasty (not always a big fan of the Christmas Ales) not super strong just a good overall flavor.

smooth offering. Much easier to drink than many christmas ales that I’ve suffered lately. I have to say, they know how to brew beer in Covington, LA

2.8
Braudog (6836) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - FEB 13, 2007
12oz 2006 bottle: A deep amber brewwith a thin but roacky/foamy head. I swear this stuff smells like nacho-cheese Dorritos ... and the flavor isn’t too different. Wow. Very vegetabley, lightly metallic, only a tad bit spicy, but somehow enjoyable. (#2700, 2/13/2007)

Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 29, 2007
Orange-amber color with a long lasting head. Weak spicy hop and malt aromas. Underwhelming flavors with a mild hop presence and some malt. Thin, with a quick, bitter finish. Expected more.

jeffc666 (1984) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - JAN 19, 2007
2006 bottle - clear copper with a dense manila colored head. the aroma is lightly toasted grain very lagerish (vienna). No spice noticeable. The flavor is also lightly nutty malty, hints of caramel, a good bit of hop bite. Sticky medium astringent body. Pretty mediocre.
