Bottle from forever ago. Reddish brown colored pour; sweet, hoppy smell and taste. Alcohol is really strong. Not really my cup of tea - too much here for me to really enjoy. Definitely a winter warmer, haha.

Gift from Maxbier. 12oz bottle. Appearance is a reddish hue with good clarity. The aroma is cherry, citrus, dark fruit, and boozy. The taste is similar with an added amount of spice and hops. The palate is a little thin. Overall pretty good beer I'm definitely looking forward to the next holiday season!

This is Christmas in your mouth. It has lots of spice, a nice kick of alcohol, and it's got a nice smell. It's a fun holiday beer, definitely one of the best Christmas ones.

@ Birdsall house . Pours clear , very dark amber . Small white head . Smell is sweet , unintense . Taste is bitter , herbal , sweet amber malts . Sharp , bit metallic . Very boozy for its ABV and a bit of a letdown after hearing raves over this ...

Nice color, very sweet and kind of alcohol forward, but it all works somehow.
