Poured into Sam Adams Sensory Glass.
Color is a light brown on the bottom of the glass and it has a really neat fade into a dark brown with a hint of dark plum. The head is thin, but leaves good lacing. There is some kind of sediment floating around in this beer.
The smell is very similar to a porter. Many sweet malty notes including carmel and honey. There is also a slight floral scent. The taste is of strong carmel honey malts with the similar side of floral hops.
Mouthfeel starts out very smooth and creamy and then becomes just a tad bitter.
Overall, this is a very easy to drink beer and it reminds me a lot of Sam Adams Honey Porter. It is a great beer and a must try for the winter months.

Spicy, shy cinnamon aroma, also some cloves, yeasty, honey cake, even some banana. Clear dark ruby color with small white head. Taste is cinnamon, banana and spices, moderately sweet with long spicy sweet finish. Thin body, watery, flat carbonation. Not exactly a winter warmer but quite nice. azzurro (214) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 12, 2017

Usually not a fan, but this one was quite nice. Mostly because I am really thirsty X) Some decent malty background, caramel, some bread, and
that cinnamon that you love in one sip and hate in another. Otherwise decent brew with moderate sweetness and moderate to light bitterness
with some herbal hops in finish. HopsSensei51 (1) - SWANSEA, WALES - FEB 27, 2017 does not count

Bottle from Aldi. A slightly bland Christmas ale compared to others but after a while, one gets some lively Christmas flavours coming through. stringtiff (1) - Rotherham, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2017 does not count
Bah Humbug 5% abv brew, has a toffee like flavour, deep rich red colour with the taste of Christmas cake and other tastes of Christmas. A most enjoyable ALE Marduk (7599) - Reval, ESTONIA - FEB 4, 2017
500ml bottle. Clear dark copper color. Small size, beige head, stays. Sweet, caramel, shy hops, malty in aroma. Sweet, lollipop, caramel, icing, bit of strawberries in taste. Sweet, strawberry-pear lollipop caramel in aftertaste. Beer is hidden. In some ways it feels like pear lemonade is mixed with beer and strawberry lollipop is the cherry on top. Weird stuff.
