4.8/5 rDev +29.4%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 5
Appearance: beautiful ruby red. 5/5, it looks amazing
smell: spice, spice, spice! Nutmeg, all-spice, cinnamon (a lot of cinnamon), fruit (orange peel, apricot, etc). It smells like Christmas (that is, if I knew what Christmas smelled like) 4.5/5
taste: Dark caramel, heavy spice, light fruit sweetness, and lighter hops. Almost no trace of its alcohol (which at 8%, is a good advantage)
The taste is dominated by the malt, fruit, and spice, with the hops only coming through in the after taste, leaving you with the pure sweet holiday goodness
as a malthead, its my kind of beer
mouthfeel: for a beer its size feels a bit too light. Still it dwells nicely and is fairly nice
I might be a little bit biased here, but I see this as the finest holiday beer Ive ever had. It does what it says, and and says what it does (that is, it is a malty, fruity, spiced up delicious brew)
perfect with some good holiday treats. Ill be saving some bottles for drinking when I make ladkas.
I love southern tier, and this make me like them even more.
Here is hoping for more 2X brews to come.
they've all been spectacular
