look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
P: One of my all time favorite bottles, festive, colorful, reflective snow, puts you in the mood of the season. 8.5oz
A: Reddish-orange, nice dense head, not too thick
S: Nice, candied fruit, apricot and pear, yeast
T: Sweet up front, the candied fruit comes through again, big alcohol aftertaste, not much hop to speak of.
M: Good, not great. Maybe a touch on the light side.
D: Again, good, not great. Probably a good thing given the high alcohol.
Notes: A really nice but not over the top/great beer. I will say that I try to get at least one or two bottles every Christmas for the bottle alone, it just makes it feel like Christmas.

Poured from a bottle into a snifter, the beer is a dark, rich, ruby-caramel coloring that is slightly murky, and starts with a frothy, bubbly, off-white head that quickly disappears. Slow trails of carbonation bubbles throughout the body of the beer. Aromas of grape, fig, raisin, and date on the forward bouquet, with earthy notes, cherry highlights, hints of booze, and a very subtle spice blend. Very rich and robust nose. Flavors are very rich and chewy forward, with lots of old world fruit and a heavy helping of warmth flourishing the taste buds. The rich and sweet notes blend terrifically, with heavy cherry and fig notes in the forefront. Very rich, robust, and heavy bodied beer, with a building warmth at the end of the palate. There is a sharpness that cuts through the end of the beer, likely a combination of the increased ABV and the carbonation. It truly helps to keep the drinkability up. Sweet candied notes in the aftertaste combine with the old world fruit characteristics, lightening them up a bit right before the slick, clean finish. It's really impressive how a beer this big clears the palate so quickly at the tail-end. Great beer!
