A-dark brownish cherry colored with a thin almost non-existent cream colored head
S-actually smells almost like tart dark cherries and cinnamon. i smell ginger and also maybe some....curry...i know it sounds weird, but it's true. smells awesome though. very unique. good strength.
T-comes in with the cinnamon, ginger, and yes...the curry. there is no spicy bite to it though, like other beers I've had with a curry flavor. it is an odd mix that is followed by a short bitterness. the after-taste is like a wintery spiced holiday bread. the more you drink it, the more flavors just start to blend together.
M-sticky medium carbonation with a fairly dry finish
O-I'd call this a winter warmer. it's an okay beer, though I expect more from Southern Tier. I got a bit too excited when I first saw this...I didn't know what to expect, but when ST names a beer 2XMAS....i expect it to taste completely like christmas. I'm not sure what that would be, but it wasn't this beer. definitely a decent drinker though, I'm glad i got this...but I probably won't be getting it again. the nose is where this beer should stay.
