    Aroma: 8 | Appearance: 9 | Mouthfeel: 8 | Flavor: 7 | Overall: 8

    Pours translucent sienna with a thick and fairly persistent fawn head. Aroma yields candi, toasted malt, spice, caramel, subtle hoppy and woody tones. Flavor features candi, nutmeg, cinnamon, clove, other spices, toasted malt, dark fruit and woody hop tones. Texture gives good firm body and peppy fizz with a dark and woody finish. Whatever you celebrate in December, may it be fun and joyful!

    Bottle: Poured a deep clear copper color ale with a medium light brown foamy head with good retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of sweet malt with some light dry fruits notes. Taste is dominated by sweet malt and is almost overly sweet with very subtle notes of dry fruits and a unrefined grain finish. Body is quite full with average carbonation and no noticeable alcohol. A bit deceiving overall with lacking complexity and some overly dominant sweetness.
