This beer was a clear garnet color with a very small head.

A muted aroma. I think there was some spice and sweet fruit.

Same thing with the taste. Cinnamon and nutmeg. Some raisin. Nothing really stood out.

This was a nice-enough, albeit ordinary, beer. It was not a great winter beer.

A- Pours a reddish brown color with a very thin off white head. Head has pretty solid retention and leaves a bit of layered lacing.

S- Smells a lot like GLBC Christmas Ale with a much stronger in your face type smell. Quite a bit of spice, cinnamon, gingerbread and nutmeg leading the way. A fair amount of yeast here too.

T- Very sweet almost too sweet. Taste has a strong brown sugar taste to it. All the spice is here too along with quite a bit of malts. Finishes with a good amount of yeast too.

M- Medium in body and carbonation.

O- An interesting twist here, but just a bit too sweet for my liking.
