Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: tpd975 on 01-03-2009

Cigar City Brewing's official celebration of Christmas. A rich-bodied brown ale forms the stage for holiday flavors which dance a festive ballet highlighted by pirouetting leaps of Christmas inspired spices. Cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, rose hips and chamomile compliment the subtle chocolate and light coffee notes of the malt and the addition of roasted carob and chicory complete the performance. Brewed once a year to celebrate the Christmas season. Pair with fresh cracked nuts, fruit cake and share with friends and family. Merry Christmas from the CCB family!

Pours a nice brown color with off-white head. Sweet dark fruits on the nose, with some subtle spices; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a nice little sweetness.

UPDATE: THIS IS NOW A 8.2% PORTER in 12oz CAN 6pk, as it was a 5% Brown Ale

A: Can is very decorative, beer is darker but light gets through

T: Spicy, carbonated, sweeter and rich once it warms down. drank on 10/28. Bottled on 10/27

M: Medium

O: Get it! Its worth it now in a 6pk and with a new body profile.
