Clear copper-colored brew in the Ciney snifter with plenty of suds in the mouth, but short-lived head in the glass. Aroma of herbal hops. Rich, rather sweet concoction with a spicy edge and an insistent malted milk taste. The flavor of slightly burnt raisin toast comes to mind.

This stuff just stays sweet from start to finish. It's a pleasant grainy, malty brew with an over-abundance of caramel. Some bitterish hops emerge for the finish. Rather leafy and a little dank for a winter brew. I had a Sierra Nevada Celebration on tap yesterday, which sets a better standard with more aromatic hops and less sugar.

From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Wine World and Spirits in north Seattle.

A - Pours a dark cloudy amber - not quite brown - with a disappointingly thin, almost-white head.

S - Sweet malts, a little caramel and chocolate, booze. A little dark fruitiness. Simple but pleasant.

T - Very sweet up front and on the way down. Caramel, brown sugar, toffee and a little chocolate, much like the nose. A small hop bite comes through towards the end. The aftertaste starts out fairly malty and slightly metallic, almost like a lager, eventually leaving a little bitterness.

M - A little too flat and syrupy for my liking.

O - A very sweet, pleasant enough Christmas ale. A little one dimensional. Nice, but nothing special.

12oz into my trusty tulip. Pours a clear amber w/ a frothy beige head some decent lacing.

Aroma is caramel and toffee, brown sugar and some floral hops in the back. Barleywine-ish.

Taste is nicely warm and round. Plenty of malt with some bright spiciness and a clean bitter finish. Falls somewhere between a session barleywine and an imperial amber ale. Drinkable.

Mouthfeel is medium-bodied and balanced. Good carbonation.

Overall a decent winter warmer, perhaps lacking in the complexity department but enjoyable enough for a cold November evening.
