A few months after Christmas now, which isn't ideal:
A: Clear bright walnut colored with a modest, but fading head.
S: Very spicy still, with nutmeg and cinnamon notes.
T: Sweet malt taste, with very low hop bitterness, relying mainly spices to cut the sweetness. Strong cinnamon flavor (I don't pick up the nutmeg of the aroma). Malt gives a nice bready flavor as well.
M: Nice creamy texture, full-bodied but not heavy.

Nice holiday beer!
