Wasn't sure what to think of this beer. Here goes:

A: Just OK. Cloudy, opaque brown with a small brown head. Lots of lacing, though.

S: Funky, but not in a good way. Onions, herbal smell, some burnt malt. Not very good.

T: Bleh, drain-pour. Rancid, oniony hops on a caramel malt backbone. Just bad.

F: OK, not very thick, some carbonation.

O: Keep away from this one.

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.
