This beer is sublime perfection. Starting with it's ruby and caramel color, that is a little deceptive in it's lightness, and ending with a burning boozy bite. I get the aroma of vanilla, nutmeg, and fresh cut douglas fir, that brings up a snow covered field peppered with small, fully decorated x-mas trees. The taste is gentle and sweet with various spicy notes (like ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon) popping up here and there. Each sip varies from the other, but none are disappointing. Scaldis Noel finishes in the throat with a light burning bitterness.

The beer pours an almost clear mahogany, with a very large head. The aroma features brown sugar, fig, cherry, raisin, plum, caramel, banana and clove. The flavor has lots of raisin and fig, with bubblegum, clove, booze, and chocolate. The mouthfeel is rich and full, but not sticky, with foamy carbonation. Overall this is an enormously flavorful beer with rich fruit and spice, a perfect Christmas Ale, with a solid core of booziness that I really enjoy.
