X-Mas Zinnebir has a medium, fizzy, cream-colored head, and a cloudy, brown appearance, with lots of bubbles, tan chunks, and lacing left behind. The aroma is of subdued spice, with a preponderance of brown bread and stereotypical strong ale smell. Taste is the same, with overriding brown bread and a strong bitterness, which grows across the sip. Mouthfeel is pretty heavy, and X-Mas Zinnebir finishes semi-dry, rich, hearty, and good. Overall, I liked its focus on beer flavor, instead of spices. I recommend it.
