Some might call Saint Arnold's the Dogfish Head of Texas.
I can see that with the marketing but minus the swagger and daring.

Ring in the season with a bang and this beer does just that
mainly with the alcohol punch. You get a warm feeling after about
half a pint.

Even better are the sweet/spice flavors that become more apparent
when the beer warms up. The only downside is the signature Saint Arnold's dirty malt finish but don't let that scare you off.

A fine addition to one’s Saint Nick beer stein.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

12 oz bottle. Pours clear red amber with a small creamy white head that goes to a thin film that leaves some lacing.

The aroma is sweet figgy malts with a little spice.

The flavor is sweet biscuity malts with some dark fruit and light spice. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with prickly carbonation.

Overall, an OK kind of bland Christmas beer.
