December 26th, 2014 - I don’t know who Arthur is, and I am going to keep the topic unresearched for the sake of mystery, but he makes a sessionable Christmas Ale, which while not my favorite beer, allows those fans of dark beer to be able to find something to while away evenings full of visits with family and friends. The nose begins with a distinct tang on an otherwise malty aroma, deviating from the cookie cutter winter warmer style of brew without being too eccentric. There’s some blueberry sweetness in the nose too, though definitely overshadowed by the distinctive tang pang. The flavor is light, which I should expect from Guinness, and indeed, the palate and mouthfeel are similar to Guinness, with that nice, cleansing, coating feeling. The flavor profile, like the nose, features a bit of blueberry (blueberry skin in particular) with a light malt tone. AnokaBrewer (223) - Anoka, Minnesota, USA - MAR 17, 2016
14.9 ounce can. Pours a clear brown with a tan foamy head that holds throughout the beer. Not a lot of aroma. Roasted malt flavor and sweet. Just enough hops to balance it, but nothing discernible. crossovert (14038) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 28, 2015

Can. Dark amber pour with a creamy off white head. Roasted malt, spice and a bit of vanilla in the aroma and taste. Koskela (505) - Marysville, California, USA - MAY 22, 2015
A malty sweetness with an underlying bitter aroma come from this clear deep red brew with an offwhite head. The taste is sweet with a slight bitterness and the taste of tin (probably from can). The aftertaste is sweet fading into a dry and bitter typical of this style. It's medium bodied and smooth.
