Very good seasonal ale. With a nice aroma that bounces out the bottel neck as soon as its open. Appearance is light brown with a hint of yellow. Flavor is very smooth and ritch with a hint of spiciness to it. Too bad its only around for the holidays. Farily hard to find, and when found, only a few 6 packs are in stock.

Brown color with fizzy tan head. Aroma of fruity malt with some spiciness. Medium bodied, flavor is slightly toasty, fruity with a bitter spicy somewhat dry finish.

UPDATED: JAN 6, 2008 Thanks to Matt for sharing my first beer from Texas. This beer pours to a glowing orange copper body. Thin white head. I like the color... The aroma is spicy like a Christmas wreath, holiday spice, and light vegetables. Spicy holiday potpourri (or what I imagine it might taste like) flavor. The palate is smooth, lightly spicy.

Pours coppery with no head. Aroma is raisiny fruit and fruitcake spices. Sweet and mild spices for flavor. Cold, its a bit watery, but warmed up slightly (per recommendation), it starts to bloom. From Specs in Conroe, TX.

UPDATED: MAR 12, 2007 Courtesy of Fly just because! Translucent and a light copper color. Aroma is fruity, like raspberries or cranberries and maybe a little caramel from the malts. Flavor is sweet in a fruity way, with a peppery spice in the background. Finsih is dominated by the sweetness, but I think I pick up some sulfur(like a fullers ale) too. Thanks and have a happy holiday Alan!

Sices standout for the aroma along with some sweet malts. Body color amber/orange with small tan head. Had a cranbeery flavor to it but spicy hop control theflavor witich was quite good. A somewhat sweet and spicy palate was left after beer was gone. Glad Santa gave me two.

I like this Christmas Ale.. 7% Alc. hidden well. Deep caramel pour with a light head. Smell the cherry, spices, and prunes. Great hearty flavor..Taste the MALTS!!!! Great winter beer for holiday parties.. Leaves almost a tarish feeling on palate. Makes you drink more.. Yes I like it...

Courtesy of kaggie97. Pours deep copper with wispy film for head. Fruit up front, prune/plum with cherry, some background spice, subdued. Flavor starts with all dark fruit, fades to peachy/apricot, and finishes with a slightly spicey malt sweetness. Oily/sticky mouthfeel. Very good beer, I wish I could score it higher.
