Christmas Ale 2009

Purchased form Sam the Beer Man in Binghamton, NY in summer of 2010.
750 mL bottle, $8.99, Corked & Caged.
Murky brown pour with a fair amount of yeasty sediment but a nice presentation in the glass. Good head forms, with a thick, mocha color and some nice lace. Looks good.
Pleasing nose with some gentle fruit and spice, but that doesn’t really manifest itself quite as strongly in the tastes. Perhaps even the few months age on this has not treated it all that well, and it would have been better, fresher. Dubbel like fruit notes and some mild all-spice. Quite rich in the mouth – pleasing.
Certainly a beer that has probably not benefited all that much from a few months in the bottle, but still a beer hat i enjoyed and would re-visit.
