Decent head but it leaves a minimum of lace. Deep brown but light does shine through.
Relatively mild aroma for this annual Xmas ale. Some biscuit and pine to the nose.
Darker malts and slightly sweet. Typical evergreen in the background. For the first, I think I detect a bit of hop in the swallow. Rich body with ample carbonation.
Overall, this not as nice as their typical offerings. It seems weaker than past years.
