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

Beer is a dark amber color. The top is thin with some carbonation busting through the foam at the top/.
The smell of the beer is of dark wood and slight spice. The smell reflects the taste of the beer
Mouthful is thin with a deep taste of bitter hops. The bitterness covers much of the spice which is able to be smelled.
In my opinion the taste is not the greatest. It taste bitter and of alcohol with not much flavor besides these two. The alcoholic taste lingers and does not escape very easily
overall an average tasting beer
