A: Pours a dark brown/ruby with small head retention. Small bubbles of carbonation present with chunky bits of yeast.
S: Smells sweet, almost fruity, with spicy hops left on the nose. Reminds me of figs, plums, and cherries. Intriguing!!
T: Good, sweet malt is off-set by the hops and alcohol. I noticed another review disappointed by the lack of harmony among the flavors. I couldn't disagree more, respectfully. Each flavor is bold and pronounced yet the overall experience comes together beautifully. Personally, I think this is one of the better 'winter warmer' ale's I've had this 2006 season; better than Anchor Steam's Merry XMas/Happy New Year Ale!!
M: Great mouthfeel - the bold flavors are washed cleanly down by the bottle conditioning and the alcohol. The only thing left on the palette is the bitterness from the hops.
D: Great ale for the holiday season. I'm still partial this year to Sierra Nevada's Celebration Ale, but this is very merry indeed!!!

On tap at the Local Taphouse.
Pours a red colour, bit of haze. Head is off-white, webbed lace but sticks to the glass. Looks nice.
Smells like banana esters, with some dry sweet spice, nutmeg and vanilla. Touch of raisin. Could have more richness and more robustness, but decent.
Taste is chocolatey. Dry cocoa with some toffee, sultanas and some dried orange peel. Not much spice; more fruit and lots of chocolate. Not bad.
Full body, nicely textured. Slightly dry on the back.
Nice beer; have had better spiced Winter seasonals though, generally better because of more spice.
Serving type: on-tap
