Our Special Ale 2004 (Anchor Christmas Ale)

Updated Review 01/08

Bottled. Part of a recent 03-07 vertical. This was the sweetest of the vertical with the usual notes but oxidation being prevelant. Enjoyable at four years old.

Taco Mac, Marietta, GA, $4.25.
Very nice. Beautiful, deep, dark brown, almost black, with a lovely dark tan head.
Very, very smooth drinking with just the right amount of carbonation. The bartender seemed to think there was a lot of gingerbread in the beer, but I didn’t pick that up. I got a smoky, sweet vanilla, with of course, all the mixed spices associated with a quality seasonal brew.
Went down really, well, with a deicious sweet finish, some light coating on the tongue. Reminded me a lot of the local Sweetwater Festive Ale brew in the same mould.
Highly recommend a couple of these if you get the chance.
