COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A strong ale with festive spices, this deep chestnut colored brew carries a hearty 8% abv. During the boil, the wort is infused with cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and other secret spices...resulting in a concoction that will warm the toes and invigorate the spirit. Pleasantly spicy when fresh, this ale will become more complex and mellow with age.

Christmas spiciness at the nose. Deep garnet/amber color. Quickly dissipating head. Honey sweetness with tastes of gingerbread and cinnamon. Usually I am not a fan of spice beers, but this is nice.

Beer has a nice dark red/amber color. The smell is sweet and some fruit I cannot identify. The taste is strongly malty, sweet, not really hoppy. The aftertaste is sweet as well. Alcohol is not overwhelming. Overall, a bit odd for my taste.

Amber in colour with strong ruby highlights and a dense tan head. Very nice appearance! Strong candy sweet aroma of cherries, grapes, pears, caster sugar and spices. Heavy-bodied; Coats the mouth; Great malty flavour with lots of the sugar and a bit of the bitterness showing through. Aftertaste shows bitter nuttiness, spice and a slight fruity quality. Overall, really good and definately worth trying! I had this pint on draught at MacGregor's in Rochester, New York on 13-November-2003.
