look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

Date Rated: April 13, 2013...
Glassware: Corsendonk snifter...
Occasion: Les Mis and a Creole brewery--straining thematic proximity...
Appearance: dark ruby velvet body with clinging off-white head--could be imposing with solid tracing as thee glass drains...
Aroma: pricks of spruce and citrus make this festive indeed; otherwise noteworthy for a brown ale...
Palate: full-bodied but oily, swiftly slickening the throat; flattened as soda--skunked?...
Taste: softened, mellow hops with enough malt to balance its flavor; not robust enough to garner interest in this genre ...
Overall: Okay, admittedly late for the Christmas beer seasonals, but they must be consumed sooner than later...this one is curious--alcohol strength is undetectable, but thee thinness of the beer ill-suits the style--this particular bottle may have been aged (a month after its best-by date) and thus could be adversely affected....
