Snagged a bottle of this at the Vintage Estate for 2 bucks. Haven't heard much about these guys but love Christmas beers.

A - A deep dark amber red almost black with a 1/4 inch of off white head. Tons of carbonation bubbles and decent lacing.

S - Well I am getting a lot of cinnamon also nutmeg. It's pretty spice forward but smells like it could have a sweet honey/caramel malt thing going on.

T - So much cinnamon it reminds me of Great Lakes Christmas ale. I really enjoy how quickly the spices fade each sip with the balance of honey and caramel malts. Not bad.

M - Drinks with a medium fizzy body. Hides the ABV well.

Overall a very nicely crafted imperial red with tons of spices and honey. As advertised.

So this is another review I need to do over because of a technical fubar. I blame it mostly on the site and I am pissed.

This is a brown ale, not amber, and it is like many other holiday brews, nothing special, just good and well made.

It's deep reddish brown with a very thin head. The aroma is of spiced brown ale.

The taste similarly is all cinnamon and other spices, Nothing new or exciting but still nice,

I recommend this beer if you are offered some, but don't go out of your way to get some.
