Ohio, United States

Style: Winter Warmer

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.30%

Notes / Commercial Description:
This beer's name sums up the idea of bringing the best together to celebrate. It is filled with seasonal flavors from generous amounts of toasted and caramel malts, mixed with equally generous amounts of honey, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg. We feel it is the perfect libation, filled with flavors of the season.

Tough to review this up against Affilgem Noel and other superstar holiday treats. A solid holiday warmer for sure though.
