Poured into a snifter glass.
A - Medium carmel color
N - Gingerbread cookie, cinnamon, slight resemblance of clove
T - Gingerbread, cinnamon, nutmeg, spice, and slight vanilla
M - Medium body, smooth
O - I'm not a huge fan of Christmas beers, but this one caught my attention. It smells and tastes like Christmas. I would say it tastes like a gingerbread ale with a cinnamon, nutmeg, and a hint of vanilla. It reminds me of a slightly weaker Christmas version of the Southern Tier Pumking...has a good aroma (albeit slightly more subtle) and has a unique taste (by the way, Pumking is my favorite pumpkin beer).
