Red-amber pour with a nice beige head. Aroma is spice and some fruit and caramel. Sweet, with enough bitterness to balance. Flavors follow through the aroma.

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2008 What an excellent beer. A lovely dark reddish-amber color. Very spicy hop aroma and taste, with a malty and sweet flavor underneath, and a very nice hop finish. It has the aroma of a very hoppy beer, the finish of a medium hoppy beer, and a flavor excellently balance between malt and hops.

thefederalist (307) - Jonesboro, Arkansas, USA - MAR 3, 2007
Pours redish brown and slightly opaque. Aroma is spicy and malty. Flavor is of cinnamon, brown sugar, nutmeg, peraps ginger. The body is fine, but, IMO, not enough hops to balance it. Lingering alcohol in the finish.

dalepryor (305) - Paducah, Kentucky, USA - DEC 1, 2012
pours a murky orange brown color with minimal head, aromas of floral hops, dark fruit, and a fruity alcohol like aroma. the taste is pretty dry, im picking up some dark fruit mostly raisins, it has a mild sweetness to it and a bitter finish. This was my first boulevard, Its not bad.

A lot of apples and cinnamon. Definitely a Christmas beer. Not quite as good as the Rogue Chamomile, but a heckuva lot easier to come by.

Newk (299) - - DEC 26, 2011
poured from bottle into a pint glass. Pours a nice medium amber color very good aromas of christmas spices, malts and some roasted nuts along with some resiny hop aromas as well. medium bodied with a good attack, but lacking on the mid and back palate. Good flavors of spices, caramel, and malts a very good christmas ale. Straight forward, but lacking a slight bit of the taste and feel.

bender (293) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - JAN 2, 2004
Hazy, red-brown body with a tan head. No lacing.
Malt and sweetness dominate the aroma. Fruity. Some alcohol.
Carmelized malt with some cinnamon dominate the flavor. Some plum/raisin hints.
Rich and full mouthfeel but with a stripping finish of alcohol.

lumpsowers (287) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - APR 19, 2009
Copper pour, medium head, heavy lace. Acrid pine aroma. Piney, hoppy brew. Nicely carbed. With a fruity apple flavor. Weird sweet after taste, some floral or strawberry?
