COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is the second release of Special Holiday Ale, which was first brewed in San Diego in 2008. Each brew is following the same recipe, including Michigan chestnuts, white sage from southern California and Norwegian juniper berries, but differences in brewing and aging practices produce different beers. Cheers to being different! Skål!

Eructoblaster (4526) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 16, 2018
Bottle - 500ml. Cloudy, dark copper body with a thin, lasting, off-white creamy head. Good malty/hoppy aroma with barley sugar, oaky, and spicy hints. Its well balanced malty/hoppy taste carries woody, barley sugar, and yeasty notes. Ends with a long, moderately warming, bittersweet finish.
