Smells like vanilla and bourbon. On pull vanilla, bourbon and malt

A tasty bottle of Christmas Cheer! Flavorful and delicious. Enjoying Logan's Birthday 2014.

Wychwood has for me become a brand to avoid. So far their varieties taste IMHO the same. The packaging is very nice, the label artwork clever, but meh. Bah Humbug typifies this. Thin, watery, and slightly bitter. The spice notes uninspired and cheap tasting like a poorly made Halloween pumpkin beer. Overall this offering lacks depth and complexity. Disappointing and so I really don't see myself experimenting with their product line any further.

Nice, malty beer. Very warming

My rating 4.0 Complex nose with trace of hops. Full flavor with variety of spices and no bitterness.

Thich, smooth, creamy, ever-so-slightly off-white head and a bit of lace. Reddish in colour that is darker than copper, but could hardly be called brown (20 SRM I would estimate). Only faint spice traces in the aroma, with a malty/fruity primacy. Hints of clove, nutmeg, and very slight trace of cinnamon. Taste is initially a bit sweeter/fruitier than through the middle and finish when a mild hops and spicy dryness kicks in that lingers a fair while. Ironically, it tastes/feels quite warming despite lacking the strength of some examples of this style. Medium bodied and lively while fairly dry, as typical of the style, if a bit less spicy and warming.
