Had this the day after Christmas at Cooper's in Scranton. What a treat and you even get to keep the Christmas glass that they served it in.

The beer is a nice thick dark brown color with a nice lacey white head. The smell is of holiday spices (nutmeg, brown sugar) and nutty. The roasted nutty flavor of this beer is really enjoyable and easy to drink. The mouthful that you get and the aftertaste are definitely a pleasure. I would have had a few more if I didn't have a few other Christmas beers on the list to try.

Presentation: purchased a 6 pack as part of a seasonal promotion, complete with commemorative glass
A: dark brown, significant off white frothy head, with almost soapy appearance
s: strong citrus, chocolate, allspice, cinnamon, herbal to include cardamom and anise
t: whoo! A dark explosion of malty and citrus and non specific fruit esters, spicy and acrid alcohol taste, chocolaty malts, very mild hop without sig bitterness
m: effervescent, good full mouthfeel, almost silky with the carbonated twing and palate cleaning acidity.
o: Toasty! An excellent winter beer, malty and warming, a sipper that best enjoyed with mild cheeses on a cold day by the fire. My new go to winter beer.
