Sweet, spicy and smooth. Tastes like a Xmas pudding with a slight bitter bite at the end. Figs, cherries and oranges with nutmeg, Cardamom, allspice...

Almost a slight barrel-aged tinge to it. Different and fun!

A. Deep amber mahogany color. Fairly cloudy. Frothy slightly amber head develops. Some laces adhere to the glass.

S. Christmas spice nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice. Cinnamon baked apples, dark malts, yeast rolls,and butter.

T. Dark malts and hop dominant the front. The back is where the spices cone through in a much more subtle form than the nose. Fairly bitter.

M. Fairly smooth, moderate carbonation, full body.

O. A good seasonal Christmas ale. I'm glad the spice profile in the taste is toned down compared to the nose. This is a good beer to get a person in the Christmas spirit.

Had it on tap at Tap House in Plainfield.
Pours a dark amber with small head.
Not very aromatic.
Taste is of a spicy ale.
Mouth feel is typical of an amber ale.
Overall a fine Xmas Ale. Just enough spice to make if different. A solid offering from ST.
