A nice holiday delight from Sam Adams. Mildly dark/ malty sweet with a nice hops backbone. I wish they would sell this by the 6-pack.......can only get this as a sampler pack as far as I know.

Given to me by a friend who happened to have one left. Drank straight from the bottle. Aroma is bready, sweet, and faintly spiced. Taste follows with a sweet, substantially malty flavor upfront, and spices following: warm cinnamon mostly, with a snap from the ginger and orange peel. Nice winter warmer, but not necessarily worth buying the whole variety pack for just this one. Release the sixers, BBC!

Nice amber color with small head and lacing. Sweet malty taste with slight hoppiness following and nice creamy texture. Reminds me of a honey bock. Another decent seasonal from Sam Adams.
