A decent beer, but in my opinion, the spices are all over the place and overpower the beer.

Enjoyed this one thanks to a friend from work---Thanks Kevin!
Poured in a pint glass, this interesting Christmas spiced Scottish ale. Nose of rich caramel malts, cinnamon, and a hint of chocolate. Flavors are quite interesting. Caramel malts, toasted bread, and cinnamon assault up front, with nutmeg and ginger coming through on the aftertaste. Solid malt backbone with a heavy dose of cinnamon and nutmeg, with warming alcohol coming through after each sip, especially as it warms. Coating spice aftertaste with decent carbonation. Brewers recipe shows vanilla, although I can not detect it. Viewable online from the MadTree website. Solid offering.

Pours a deep brown with ruby highlights. Centimeter of tan head. Nice lacing forms as this drinks down.

Rich bready nose. Vanilla and nutmeg come through as well.

Medium body. This needs to warm a bit because I feel like it is masking quite an bit of the flavors. Some tobacco notes go along with the rich caramel flavors. Little hops to speak of. Big bready malt characters come through. Nothing really overwhelming or more specifically not one element of this beer truly dominates. The malt character really sits well with the spices and there is just a touch of residual sweetness leftover.

Some alcohol notes b come evident as this warms up a bit. More tobacco and leathery characters but this doesn't take away anything from the beer. There is a bit of roasted malt but again this just adds to the overall complexity.

Very nice beer. Big but that is to be expected from a winter warmer. Darker and a bit more roasted character than some but a very solid beer.
