I got a 6 pack of this for 7.99 what a steal!!

A: Brown but still slightly see through nice lacing and a thin head
S: Malt, slight spices, brown sugar
T: Smooth malts, spices, brown sugar, high% alcohol but still is easy to drink
M: Smooth not too heavy not too light with a good amount of carbonation
O: Very solid Christmas Ale especially for the price, definitely give this a try if you appreciate Breckenridge's other offerings such as Vanilla Porter.

From bottle, no date. Pours a dark, though very clear, copper with a white head. Aroma is very mild, some raisin-like aromas, rich malt. Taste is all malt, not picking up much in the way of Christmas spices, mostly a rich roasted caramel malt backbone balanced well with mild bitterness. Mouthfeel is rich and slightly sticky. I wish it was colder outside, maybe I would have enjoyed this more in New Hampshire, but in Texas, I am less impressed.
