Bottle courtesy of Greg Engert at Churchkey. Chestnut/amber color with a large white head, long-lasting, with great lacing. Subtle aroma of spice, maybe cinnamon and nutmeg. Flavor begins with light mixed winter spice, then grass, then malt, then pumpernickel bread, and finishes with a faint bitter edge. Nicely complex. Great body. My second favorite Christmas beer of the 2009 season so far, very nice indeed.
