11.2oz bottle into the snifter glass.

Garnet colored body with a slight haze. Two fingers of off-white head; already starting to lace on the first of the subsiding.

A nutty/soapy yeast smell is in the forefront; booze, sour milk, aromatic bitters, metal, slight coriander, and a tart smack of unripe cherries.

Taste follows the aroma; yeasty, a little metallic, nutty; the cherry and spice come out in the finish, ending in the spiciness.Tastes like a Belgian Imperial Red Ale (sweeter, less hops). It's a little hot, but I don't mind it.

Carbonation is a bit high/scrubby. Still has a nice creamy feel to it. A bit sticky; lip-smacking.

It's a holiday favorite, what can I say? Slightly overrated, but a must have every Christmas season.

Appearance: Pours a clear, reddish-brown body with a thinnish, wispy, off-white head.

Smell: A chiefly fruity nose, smelling of brandy-soaked dried fruits supported by secondary notes of light brown sugar, caramel, and dull, earthy spices.

Taste: Dark maltiness with flavors of nutty caramel and cocoa. Brief burst of sweetness from a handful of candi sugar. Concentrated fruitiness tasting of stewed plums garnished with golden raisins. Splash of brandy. Hint of gingerbread cookies. Touch of warming alcohol in the dry finish. Very slight lingering of spices in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium, though somewhat lively carbonation.

Drinkability: By no means my favorite, but it's still a fitting, well-balanced choice for your holiday drinking. I'll give it that much. It is, after all, the holiday season!
