Had this on 2014-12-15 in Columbia, PA from a bottle

A - Fairly clear ruby with a 2-finger light tan head that sticks around and leaves great lace. A beautiful brew.

S - Red licorice, cherries, candied orange, hint of dark bread.

T - More porter/stout-like than I expected from the aroma. Plenty of medium roasted grain and some char and semi-sweet chocolate. The sweet fruit aspects evident in the smell are not a major component of the taste but instead, add a festive touch to the malt base; along with some cinnamon and vanilla. There's also a woody/oak flavor, which adds to the balance; keeping the sweetness well-in-check. There's a good amount of roast and hop bitterness in the finish; appropriate to the style.

M - Medium body and carbonation. Substantial with creamy and prickly aspects competing-and-yet-balancing each other.

O - I use the word "balanced" a lot in this review but don't take this as meaning bland. There are bold but balanced flavors. Basically, if you are in the mood for something like Stone's Oaked Arrogant Bastard but favor a bit of holiday cheer stirred in; this is the beer for you. I'll have this again; and it doesn't have to be just at the Winter holidays.

Good winter/holiday beer that doesn't teeter to the bad or the great.
