Probably the most readily available take on the style, but it doesn't disappoint. I've had it several times before, but always served too cold and in the wrong glassware. It's a much different--and much better--experience when slightly chilled and poured in a proper chalice. This beer has fantastic flavor--notes of fruit and caramel, but enough spice that it's not cloyingly sweet. The taste belies the high alcohol content, but the booze gives off a nice warming feeling. An excellent choice for a cool night.
