Had this on tap poured into a pint glass. Pours a nice off brown color. The aroma of Christmas spices are not overpowering. A great christmas beer!

Muted malt sweet aroma. Taste is copper malt flavored which is not my thing but its not too abrasive. Really like the spices which are pretty gentle. Red copper color with a bit of white head. Clear. Thinnish body.

Dark amber Xmas beer. Light for the style but easy drinking. A touch of sweetness and malt and that is about it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
