look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4
Pours a nice, mostly transparent medium brown, with a light colored finger of head. Aroma is pleasant, with a pretty nice floral hoppy note, nutty, chocolate malts with some slight roasty notes. Roasted malts taste, with light chocolate and nuttiness, caramel and a nice spicy, floral, light citrus hop finish. Medium body, but the lighter side. Average, not bad.
As usual, Abita's Christmas remains one of the few seasonal's that I enjoy thoroughly.

on tap into a long trail pint glass.
A - reddish brown, 1/2 inch head, clearish.
S - earthy and dull, lacks the spicy or sweet smell expected from most xmas beers.
T - it would be a stretch to go with earthy hops up front. overwhelming wood notes. unlike anything i've ever tasted. in a bad way...
M - Carbonation was a bit light for me in this style. Watery.
O - I got halfway through it. I enjoyed nothing about this beer.
Serving type: on-tap
