Bottle undated, presumably 2004 vintage Pours syrupy black with virtually zero head retention. Nose is super pine cone hops overpowering virtually all other aromas. Really, this one smells like nothing less than a freshly squeezed Xmas tree. And to my senses thats a good thing. The body has a nice heavy gravity to it, sliding down the throat langorously like carbonated molasses... only a slight exagerration, but the enthusiasm brought about by this beer encouraging a bit of truth stretching. The hops arent nearly as dominant on the tongue as the aroma, but still marginalize the other tastes. The actual taste of the hops used is quite excellent, however. A fine, if nearly exquisite, example of what I look for in a Christmas ale. High marks all around
