This is a great winter seasonal. Pleasantly spicy, and very drinkable.

Easily the most overrated craft beer in my opinion, While its not bad. I am totally at a loss as to why the hype machine gets fired up the way it does over this beer. It doesn't seem to have any one thing that stands out as a beer worth seeking out. I suppose its less about how bad this beer is, and more about how many other amazing Christmas Ales and craft beers are out there~

Bought some of this at local Kroger store, yes, grocery store to try... not bad, basic winter style beer... tastes good, great ruby red/rust color... but surprisingly no aroma... but again, good drinking beer and seasonal.
