This beer's name sums up the idea of bringing the best together to celebrate. It is filled with seasonal flavors from generous amounts of toasted and caramel malts, mixed with equally generous amounts of honey, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg. We feel it is the perfect libation, filled with flavors of the season.

Tough to review this up against Affilgem Noel and other superstar holiday treats. A solid holiday warmer for sure though.

Served in a pint. Pours a deep, clear copper with a short off white head and minimal lacing. Rich, dulcet aroma, smells of honey, malts, brown sugars. Rich, smooth, mellow and sweet. Slight bitterness and warmth on the follow through. Full bodied, medium levels of carbonation, smooth finish. Overall, this is a jolly good beer and I'll probably have a few more this holiday.

I usually do not like Winter Ale's but I received this as a gift and I really liked it. The spices really go well together to make this a great beer.

My fav winter warmer. Would like to try their wee heavy (Wulver). This beer has a great look, nose, mouth feel and taste. Very well balanced without any dominating flavor. The finish is smooth. Everything a winter beer should be.
