I've had this ale a few times now, both from the bottle and on tap.
Poured with some vigor into a pint glass just a whisper of a head forms atop this slightly hazy, dark honey-colored ale. Only spotty lacing.
I steal a big whiff just after the pour and am greeted by a huge, perfumy, spicy bouquet of hops... dominated by centennial. I think i catch some cinnamon there too. Once the dust settles so to speak, one notices caramel malt, vanilla and more of a piney presence. The bouquet just keeps drawing me in.
Spicy, piney hops dominate the flavor., while there is sufficient malt backbone to keep them from going over the top. Enlivened with a citrusy tinge. Tasty but not as complex as the aroma might lead you belive.
Wreck the Halls is medium-bodied with nice viscosity and complementary carbonation.
A nice change of pace from most winter ales, more akin to Celebration than anything, i suppose. Good beer.
