Im rating this expecting a Christmas beer. It looks like a Christmas cookie and smells like Christmas. Huge smells of clove with hints of orange cinnamon and malts. It 's got a nice spice kick with the clove up front followed by the orange, cinnamon and the ginger that rounds out the spices. It has a slight bitterness as well from some hop usage.

Very malty on top of all the spices. This is an excellent, excellent Christmas beer. I'm very impressed with everything they listed on the label is actually is in the taste as well. This at the Christmas dinner table would be a great addition. Good job Southern Tier.

Ruby colored beer with a billowing head khaki tan head leaves fine lacing. Aroma is full of nutmeg, cinnamon, clover and other Christmas ales, Meant to attract some of the Great Lakes Christmas ale following, but in a higher alcohol format. An ale brewed with figs, orange peels, and spices look I'm getting super malts and spice additions. Overall a super sweet cloying mess that should be drank in moderation I'm willing to vogue for this spiced beer but at the alcohol level and spice discomforts I would wait until this is your last option to drink an Xmas ale. Overall look forward to other highly spice and highly drinkable offerings.
