Soda like carbonation, root beer like smell and flavor. Roasty notes, maybe some rum, thin but somewhat grainy mouthfeel. Nothing like eggnog anywhere, which I suppose might have been a good call. This beer is good, just not really what you'd expect from the description on the label.

Appearance - The color of the beer is brownish black with a mocha colored head. There is variation in the color.

Smell - This beer smells like Vanilla Coke with Christmas trees.

Taste - Right of the bat, I notice the carbonation is huge. The carbonations just reinforces the fact that I am drinking Vanilla Coke. Toward the back, I note an aftertaste of Peppermint Schnapps. I can't get over the Vanilla Coke taste here.

Mouthfeel - The carbonation is just to big for a milk stout. Did they have to force more carbonation to make up for all the stuff they added?

Overall - I like unique beers, so I kind of like this one.

Nailed it on the aroma. Smells exactly like eggnog. The flavor came across a little too minty/mouthwashy to be worthy of more than 8 oz at a time though. Also a bit on the boozy side. Glad I got to try it though.
