look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Slightly cloudy, reddish brown, auburn color

S: Carmel not very pungent

T: Orange hops to start, slight carmel malt, nice clean end

M: Big bold front front, effervecent crisp finish

O: Although it didnt blow me away as I like Christmas ales to do it is a nice beer. Not super heavy on malt, lighter than most winters out there. Pairs well with winter root veggies, perhaps some meatloaf

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Appearance: 1 inch head, clear, brown in color, with medium carbonation

Smell: toasted malt and nut

Taste: chocolate, nut, big toasted malt towards the middle, and holiday spices at the end

Mouthfeel: medium body, sweet, moderate carbonation

Overall: A super malty English brown ale that throws an interesting twist with holiday spices at the end. Not my favorite from the brewery, but interesting. I am glad I got a six of this beer.
