Well, I always like some ass... and have fun with the gimmicky labels... but hey, this really did wind up being a surprisingly nice one! When I heard the name, I said I had to have a case of it, just to say I've had Santa's ass, and well, now I have.
So dark and chocolately you cannot see through it, except for a bit of amber/rootbeer at the bottom. Bit of a thin ring of khaki only at the edge of the glass. Great porty/stout scents, dark chocolate yumminess, very good. Light to medium body, the carbination is there, but not too much, not too overwhelming. It does fizz up a bit for a second, but not foamy, you just feel it. Very nice dark tastes, black coffee and chocolate, black licorice, anise. the anise really seems to make it's presence known in the aftertaste. Very easy drinker, good flavors and feel.
This turned out to be not only a fun beer to share with my friends and family for the holidays, but a nice drinker!

Poured a dark mahogany semi-clear color with one finger of khaki tan head. Minimal lacing along the sides of the glass. Below average retention.
Smelled sugary malts, roasty malts, toast, nutty, caramel, toffee, cough syrup and faint coffee.
Tasted quite bland. Nutty, toffee, caramel, roasty, toasty and slightly more bitter than the nose.
Medium-to-full body. Oily-to-creamy texture. Soft carbonation. Bitter finish.
Nothing special about this beer. I probably even overrated it a bit. Won’t try it again on purpose.
