I liked this, but I don't see why people love GL Christmas Ale so much more than it. 12 Dogs of Christmas is almost the same beer in terms of flavor, as far as I am concerned. Pours a mahogany red with little off-white head. Nose is of spices with some sweet malt thrown in. Taste follows with spices, sweet malt bill, and more spices. Maybe a bit of herbal hops on the finish. Tastes like GL Christmas, but maybe a bit more refined. Decent mouthfeel, medium, ample carbonation. Decent drink overall, not a bad beer by any means, but I am a bit tired of all the Christmas beers by now.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Receive as a trade from a non BA member. Sampled on July 24, 2014.
It pours a medium amber-copper color with a long lasting off-white head and great clarity. It looms like it should and nothing more.
It is the aroma that really jumps out at me with a wide variety of pungent herbs such as Ginger and Rosemary. Some toasted malts and mild earth.
The taste has many of the same herbal characteristics with the added touch of nutmeg, which I did not get in the aroma. Thin hop finish. Overall, not a bad beer.

Got this a couple months ago. Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a snifter.
a - Pours a murky, mahogany brown color with one to two inches of light tan head and moderate carbonation evident.
s - Smells of spices, honey, dark fruits, wheat, bready malts, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
t - Tastes of spices , pepper, coriander, bready malts, wheat, fruits, dough , gingerbread, and light cinnamon. Too much spice for me, a step down from the nose for me.
m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Pretty easy to drink.
o - Overall a decent nose but way too much spice going on in the taste for me. Not my favorite holiday beer.
