Poured into a snifter. Thanks for this one darthvohn.

The ecru-colored, creamy foam of this holiday offering almost builds to a finger in width, receding less than thirty seconds later to barely covering the cap. An almond-hued body is streaked with ruddy highlights.

The orange peel, cinnamon, and nutmeg-like aromas all jump out of the glass first, spiced-smelling like a crafts store on December 21st. The malt slowly bubbles to the surface with impressions of graham, vanilla, a little bit of honey, Christmas in a glass.

First impressions recall mulled wine with a big punch of orange and cinnamon swelling on the back end of the palate. Clove, nutmeg, cinnamon grab the attention of the palate at first, with a smokey fig, orange-y bite, and graham-like malt near the finish. A slight bitterness, feeling like pine, surprises on the finish.

2XMAS sits on the tongue with a medium heft and velvety, creamy smoothness, with the bitterness drying up the finish.

2XMAS, packed to the brim with spice like Santa's gift bag on Christmas Eve, smells and tastes like Christmas. Not wanting to "Bah Humbug" this beer, the sweet and decadent malt could be more forward, for an even more delectable holiday drinking experience. Great job Southern Tier!
