From a microbrewery. Oak-aged. It has a funny label of a drunk looking guy wearing a Santa hat with stars. I wonder what it means. It pours into a chalice with a nice creamy head. It looks dark brown, blurry. It smells like plums, licorice, brown sugar, some liquid bread, dark cherries. Medium body, medium to low carbonation, fruity in the middle and an explosion of flavors that hides the alcohol. This is pretty amazing.

Poured from 330mL bottle into a tulip.

Appearance: medium amber hue with lots of haze, crowned by a thick finger of creamy tan foam with great head retention. Not particularly pale, but definitely not dark; whatever it is, it's attractive.

Smell: very sweet and malty with a pretty decent dark-fruit character; there is plenty of date character in the mix. It really does straddle the line between a pear & apple Belgian pale and a raisin & date Belgian dark; frankly, I like it.

Taste: sweet malt with a little dankness and more of that middle-of-the-road fruitiness; there's pear, date and maybe even a little tobacco. It's a little on the sweet side for my taste, but that can be overlooked.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a big carbonation and concomitant creaminess. Ba-dow!

Overall: what a lovely beer. It is a bit too sweet for me, on balance, but there are too many good elements here to outweigh that factor. I think this is a great stab at a Christmas beer; big ABV and plenty of character, but not a big spice bomb. Dig it!
