beerbrat99 (132) - Shanghai, CHINA - DEC 6, 2007
On tap. Deep rich brown hue. Nice tan head with some lacing. Aroma of red fruit, leather and roasted malts. Toffee flavor with mild bitterness and a bit of a harsh alcohol note in the finish.

highlandlad (1480) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - DEC 6, 2007
The third and best of a flight of three US Xmas ales generously supplied to Eczes Sydney RB bash 2007 by the esteemed Linc, who has access to beers well beyond the average schmo (ie, me). This was my pick of the bunch by a whisker - the others were Bridgeports Ebenezer Ale and Sam Adams Holiday Porter. It was the best-looking, ruby with a short head that lasted til Christmas. Nice aroma of treacle scones and sherry - clean. Thinner bodied than the others but not to the extent that it felt like a flaw. Very fruity aroma - cranberries, I wrote, but that may just be the suggestibility power of an Xmas ale. Strong crystal malt toffee notes and a resinous US hop finish. Quite astringent. Sweet and sticky.

ZiggyG (131) - Gladstone, Oregon, USA - DEC 5, 2007
Bottle. Pours dark brown, almost black. Nice 2 inch tan head that leaves lots of lacing. Smell is strong roast coffee malts and chocolate. Taste is mellow coffee with a nice integrated hops bitterness at the end. A hint of skunkiness spoiled the flavor a bit. Mouthfeel is full with medium-low carbonation. Leaves the mouth feeling coated with a nice tingle in the throat.

Interesting beer. Sweet nose, mildly fruity and floral. Dry finish, with a full mouthfeel. Lightly fruity and rich caramel malt flavor, some hop bitterness. Low carbonation.

darbish (115) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 28, 2007
Smells a little like coffee, and sweetness. Fairly dark (opaque), brownish-orange color and pours with a thin head. Tastes fairly sweet but the flavor is not overpowering. Also it is malty and woody or piny tasting. The finish is somewhat overpowering, and I cant tell if the finish is from hops or if they added pine needles to the recipe. Overall, quite delicious.

CasperQuaffer (142) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - NOV 23, 2007
Pours dark but translucent. Medium head. Taste chocolate, slight coffee, and a bit of citrus rind hops. Well rounded malty mouth feel. Too bad this very good beer is not an "all-weather" type ale.

07 Bottle: Amber in color with little to no head. Sweet fruit, apple, light malt and floral hops on the nose. Refreshing malty apple flavor with a dry hop finish. Good stuff

I look forward to this beer all year long, and when the holidays come around I do my part to keep the brewer in business. That said, it seems like every year its less robust than I remember the year before. Maybe Im projecting memories of holiday cheer into the beer, but it never seems to live up to what I remember. Nonetheless, its a wonderful quaff that fills my whole mouth with flavor.

trokini (1025) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 21, 2007
Pours deep mahogany with brown hioghlights and a thin tan head. Nutty, roasted malt aroma, with a bit of spice (nutmeg? cinnamon?). Flat mouthfeel. A truckload of caramel malt lingers throughout, which the hops have the fight through. Some coffee and roasted malt. It really keeps true to a English Strong Ale without falling into the ESB category.
