Ruby/mahogany colored with a fizzy head that dissipates quickly to just a small ring around the glass. It does leave some lace though.
Cola, fig, plum, prune, nutmeg and cinnamon.
Matches up well with the nose here. Very deep complexity. Sweet, malty, fruity and full of holiday spices. Significant hoppy bitterness and spice at the end.
Medium feel and mostly smooth. A bit slick, but dries out towards the end.
Definitely fits the bill as a holiday beer. This may very well be the best holiday ale I've had. It's big and bold with sweet and spice and everything nice. Very warming and just really hits the mark for being a Xmas brew.
