This beer poured with a small, darker tan colored head. Beer color is a dark reddish brown. The aroma is spices and fruit/berry. The taste has a much more pronounced berry note. Spices, roasted malt. Some hops that don't quite get to the level of citrus or pine, but give a little bitterness. A little thin on the finish. The aftertaste leaves you with some spices and a grassy/metallic note. A definite "holiday" taste to this one.
