A- This beer really pours well for a typical American Christmas brown ale and looks really good. Pours with a 2-3 finger foamy off-white head that fades to one finger that lingers on and on. Plenty of lacing all the way down the glass.
S- Nose is rich and brown. There is a light spiciness to it with nutmeg, brown malt, and a hint of cinnamon.
T- Mild chocolate with nutmeg and cinnamon overtones. A hint of nuttiness in the finish adds a hint of complexity. The finish amplifies the initial flavor.
M- Medium carbonation and a nice full medium weight body. Very smooth with a hint of dry spiciness to it.
O- Overall this is a nice Christmas beer/winter warmer. Overall I really like full pint and their offerings. While the flavor profile of this beer is nothing too exciting the mouthfeel is exceptional, smooth and full pint nailed it.

This is a nice brown ale, but it also is a holiday warmer, because it is spiced.
So, for quality? It's good. The brew opens nice and dark and it yielded a nice head that dissipated pretty quickly. The aroma is faint, and of spice. The taste is brown ale with spice. Nicely balanced but not very hoppy. Not very American (nothing is over the top). But it's a pleasant brew with nothing bad going on, it just is not something I would be looking for more of - it's kind of ordinary.

Pours a medium brown, minimal head. Scent bring notes of caramel, toasted grain, brown sugar, seasonal spice such as cinnamon. Taste dials back the nose a bit, lightly muddy, nutty and sweet malts, spices are moderate but noticeable. Medium bodied, light in carbonation. Solid brown ale all around, maybe a touch less sweetness prefered, but appropriate for the season.

Poured from a 12 FL OZ bottle into a pint glass. BEST BY JUNE2013. LOT 284.
Appearance: Pours a dark brown/burgundy body with a decent toffee colored head.
Smell: Malty alcohol-laced aroma of coffee liquor. Kahlua or Amaretto. Chocolate malts.
Taste: Chocolate malts. Christmas cookie aftertaste. Slight coffee flavor.
Mouthfeel: A little thin. Typical of brown ales in my opinion.
Overall: Similar to my just reviewed All In Amber by the same brewery, the chocolate malts dominate this beer. I am more accustomed to chocolate malts in a stout or porter. Very interesting in a brown or amber ale. A good beer for the holidays.
