12 Oz Bottle poured into glass
Look - dark amber red color, decent foam head with tons of lacing
Smell - It's familiar yet unique...sweet malt, tangerine peel, a little pumpkin pie spice, and some chocolate mousse
Taste - Less flavor than the aroma....basically just a malty ale with some background flavors. It's delicious but it's not too complex. Medium body and medium carbonation. It's not super spicy and not super bold even though the label suggests otherwise. The subtle chocolate and fruit gives it the overall pleasant taste.

Overall, my first time trying this, so can't compare to previous years. I think it's a solid beer, very good but not outstanding or anything. I think it's one of the better holiday ales.. Grade is an A-

Mulling spices at the forefront on this one. Maybe it’s too early in the season, but not real impressed. Interesting taste, but I’d prefer something heavier. Cinnamon, nutmeg, etc. maybe with some Christmas fruitcake it would taste great....
