Beer is light amber in color and mostly clear with a thin haloed head that doesn't leave lacing on the glass. Beer has moderate to low carbonation.

Lots of spice in the nose as well as some malty sweetness. Smells about what I expected.

Beer is thin and weakly carbonated on the palate. It's a little over spiced with cloves and cinnamon, maybe some nutmeg. It finishes a little drier than I was expecting as well. Eh...I don't think I'd have it again, although I generally really like Brewer's Art.

On tap at The Brickskeller on December 9, 2010.

Pours a nice ruby-copper color with a bit of haze and a good white head that lingers for a bit before settling to a thin cap and has a bit of very light lacing. The nose brings quite a bit of ginger and cinnamon, making it a tad bit over-spiced. Beyond that, there is a bit of crystal malt, but not really much else to work off of.

The flavor is quite spicy, but somehow works much better than it did in the nose. There are some fairly-strong notes of cinnamon and ginger, though beyond that there are a few notes of pine that take things in a slightly-different direction with a more earthy character. The beer has a medium body and finishes a bit dry. A pretty decent brew that got better as it warmed.

On tap @ the Brewpub 01-02-09

Pours a dark amber with a small head. The smell is of nutmeg, all spice, cinnamon, ginger. The taste is pretty much the same but not overwhelming like many spiced Christmas beers are. A very nice balance. Mouthfeel was so-so, a little on the light side, but this did raise the drinkability of the beer. Overall a nice version of this style really enjoyed it and recommend giving a try if you stop in.
