This beer was a clear garnet color with a very small head.

A muted aroma. I think there was some spice and sweet fruit.

Same thing with the taste. Cinnamon and nutmeg. Some raisin. Nothing really stood out.

This was a nice-enough, albeit ordinary, beer. It was not a great winter beer.

A- Pours a reddish brown color with a very thin off white head. Head has pretty solid retention and leaves a bit of layered lacing.

S- Smells a lot like GLBC Christmas Ale with a much stronger in your face type smell. Quite a bit of spice, cinnamon, gingerbread and nutmeg leading the way. A fair amount of yeast here too.

T- Very sweet almost too sweet. Taste has a strong brown sugar taste to it. All the spice is here too along with quite a bit of malts. Finishes with a good amount of yeast too.

M- Medium in body and carbonation.

O- An interesting twist here, but just a bit too sweet for my liking.

Hints of cloves and raisin, framed in light sourness, this Belgian ale tries but fails to play with the big boys. Despite the strength, it tastes watery and surprisingly underwhelming.
Try once, just to say you have.
