Massively fruity berry aroma, some christmassy spice. Sweet cakey taste, spice, berries. Soft and well-balanced - not caricatured, but definitely strongly themed.

Bottle. Pours an almost clear brown with a small head. Smell dark malts, raisins and a little spicy. Nice bitter finish, medium to full body. bhensonb (15187) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 14, 2007
Dark malt aroma; not much, if any, fruit or juniper. Dark brown color with a deep ruby that comes out under halogen. A beige/tan head that was reluctant to stay. A little berry fruit as the glass approaches the nose. Ok. The flavor starts with some pretty decent berry fruit - not tracing that to the juniper, which is leaving an evergreen note. The body is near full, and the carbonation is creamy. The malt is heavy caramel. The hop is not present? The juniper is low key, but ever present. This is an especially pleasant ale. The finish is sugary, but when that washes away, there is mild, persistent bitter. A really well done ale.

Bottle from Belmont Party.

Good complex warming brew.
