I had the privilege of drinking this AMAZING beer last night at a friends going away party. To make a long story short, this beer IS CHRISTMAS in a bottle. Smells of eggnog, gingerbread, cinnamon, and a touch of nutmeg. The taste is rich, thick, and tastes of the previously stated scents. TL;DR I would buy this beer if I come across it again.

Haven gastropub in pasadena. This beer pours from a cask pitch black with a pinky-finger of beige head that sticks around for a few minutes until disappearing into a thin ring. Swirl the beer and you rebuild a thin cap.

Smells like spices like clove and cinnamon. I think I detect some rosemary and other spices I cannot pin point.

This beer TASTES LIKE CHRISTMAS!!! Just like the smell, but stronger and sweeter, maybe brown sugar. Fantastic! I'm going out to try and find a few bottles tomorrow. I want to have this every Christmas

Feels very thick, and slick.

I can't find any fault with this one. It's FUCKING delicious
