4.39/5 rDev +10.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Appearance is light brown with a medium head that had some staying power and left pretty good lacing.
Odor is sweet. Many holiday notes (of course) with nutmeg, cinnamon and others. Mostly sweet smell with hint of hops/pine in there as well.
Taste is sweet and caramel at first. The spice is prevalent as well, but I really like both of these is a Christmas beer. Some minor notes were gingerbread, toffee, and a touch of hops/ pine coming thorough at certain points(mostly middle end). Ends with cinnamon and spice that lingers for a bit.
Mouth feel is very good. Not too much carbonation and reasonably smooth.
Overall, it is a Christmas beer and brings what might be expected. Plenty of seasonal spice and sweet flavor. Perhaps my favorite Christmas beer!
