Massachusetts

3.4/5  rDev +3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Appearance: dark reddish-brown in color, 1/4 inch head, clear, medium carbonation

Smell: toasted malt, dark berries, and clove

Taste: toasted malt, light berries, sweet chocolate, clove and light roasted malt towards the end

Mouthfeel: medium bodied, medium carbonation, sweet with a slightly bitter finish

Overall: Holiday ale in every sense of the word. Solid but a six pack is enough. After that I will not seek this out. I seem to remember enjoying previous Christmas Ales more. This will not stop me though from looking forward to next year's release.

Serving type: bottle
