Looks pretty substantial, holidng true at brown/deep ruby red, with snowcaps of off-white head marking the top.
Raisins, rum, spices, vanilla - it's like a pint glass of holiday home.
Malty sweetness is decorated with hints of gingerbread, sugars, and boughs of evergreen, with just a hint of alcohol hiding behind the tree. The hoppiness is understated, but seems to come on towards the end.
Sticky and sugary - pretty sure if I stuck my tongue out, sugary crystals would form. A good exhale follows this beer.
Great for winter - warming and satisfying, without being over-bearing.
