Mixture of brown, crimson and burnt copper. Aroma hits you in those Christmas feels. Cinnamon, cranberry, brown malt.

Taste gives all the holiday feels too, even with a little Pumpkin thrown in. Some spice rack. A little sweet. Still lots of brown malt. Tastes somewhat like they took a bunch of holiday food and put it in a juicer. For better or for worse
