look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

It really does smell like Christmas spices used in pies and gingerbread cookies. Taste like it smells but with rich sweet chocolate malts with some cinnamon flavor and the ginger taste. The orange peel ginger and dry cinnamon taste comes together at the end. As it starts to warms the spices really come out more and it creates a warm sensation. Has a good mouthfeel its thick and rich.

This is like Winter Lager but better. Its a special one to get from Samuel Adams. A lot of taste for not that high of an alcohol content. I know its cliche but they should really release this beer as their winter seasonal beer. The winter lager is good but that is almost like the lighter safer version of this. Its easy to drink plus has a full flavor taste that you would expect out of a high end craft beer.

look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Appearance: Fabulous deep reddish brown color with a good sized head and retention.
Smell: Aromas of nutmeg, cinnamon, and other spices balanced with the scent of the malt.
Taste: Very complex but very balanced as well. I felt like i was eating a nice doughy Christmas cookie. You get a really great combination of spices and the malt flavor that really makes it feel like a cookie. Great to drink with dessert.
Drinkability/mouthfeel: Great winter warmer, easy to drink but carries some weight to it. I wish Sam Adams would sell this in 6 packs. It's not that i don't enjoy the mix pack, I just don't want to buy 12 beers to get 2 that I really enjoy. Overall, in my opinion, this is the best beer the Sam Adams brewery produces.
