A very smooth Christmas Ale for a higher alcohol brew!

Served on tap into a snifter. The eighth beer of my 2014 twelve beers of Christmas.

A- Poured a dark reddish brown with off-white soapy head that left some light lace.

S- Lots of clove, Belgian yeast, dark fruit, and red apple notes.

T- Lots of clove, Belgian yeast, and bubblegum notes. Pretty big red apple notes, dark fruits, spicy yeast notes, and finishes with a mild bitterness.

M- Medium to fuller bodied, very dry, smooth, and lower carbonation. The alcohol is very well hidden for 10% ABV, it wasn't really noticeable at all.

O- Dark Belgians are usually not a favorite of mine, but this one is really good. Often I find this style to be a little too sweet for me. This beer has lots of rich, sweet, fruity flavors balanced out by spicy yeast notes and hop bitterness.

Pours a plum/dark ruby color with virtually no head. Aroma of caramel, brown sugar, booze and fruit. In the taste, raisin, plum and sugary malts. Light bitter earthy hops but this beer is sweeter. Light spices and a small burn round out a nice flavor profile.

Pimp my Sleigh is a full bodied ale with good carbonation. Drinks smoothly and effortlessly. Overal this is a nice Christmas ale, one worth revisiting when it comes around.

Ouch! 16oz pour? Jeebus! Looks a cloudy dark brown-red. Mega-thick lacing. Intimidating-looking, in a good way.

Smells of candi sugar, sweet dark fruits, cherry, caramel, and cordial. Estery yeast and chiming booze. This is a big one.

Sweet toffee, red fruits, candi sugar, nectarine, cherry, plum, clove, hint of cinnamon, toastiness, and a hell of a lot of booze. Tastes tangy in a great yeasty way. Huge, in a scary way. Wowsers.

Drinks super-duper smooth in the body. Feels like cashmere. Carbonation is appropriately feisty. Booze is on overdrive, however, and murders the drinkability.

One tasty draft beer. Wish I had one of these for Christmas. Great representation.

Had this on 2012-12-21 in Columbia, PA from a 5-hour old growler from the Pittsburgh pub.

A - Cloudy dark amber with a short light tan head and mild lacing. Got less opaque as it warmed.

S - Bubblegum and clove like a weizenback. Fruity Belgian yeast. Caramel candy apple. Touch of alcohol.

T - Pretty sweet, raisins, brown sugar, bubblegum, clove, little bit of fig. Mid tongue is like cinnamon on a tart orange and lots of sweet and dark cherry. A bit of balancing hop bitterness.

M - Medium body and carbonation. Syrupy but with cleansing carbonation.

O - A festive, holiday brew. Better than their Christmas ale.

This poured out as a reddish brown color with a thin cream colored head. The retention was minimal as well as the lacing. The smell of the beer gave off some decent spicy notes and some sweet malts. The taste of the beer was slightly bready with a decent mix of spices, sweet grains and candi sugar. The mouthfeel was medium bodied with a moderate carbonation level. Overall it's not a bad beer, not really too exciting though either.

Pours a deep amber color with an off white head. In the aroma, a small dark fruit and spices. In the taste, lots of spices, dark fruits, and a note of alcohol. A spice bite and a medium bodied mouthfeel, with a semi dry spice and dark fruit in the aftertaste. Quite nice, and it almost feels like a quad.
