Good beer but watch the alcohol content

High alcohol content: this will fuck you up fast LOL. The taste is very complex but overpowering in my opinion, and the aftertaste is this weird cherry flavor that brings back bad memories of children's cough syrup :/ probably would not drink it casually or more than once in one sitting

Christmas seasonal that only comes out for a limited time.

I have no idea why this beer is even compared to Merry Monks. The aroma was not the greatest. Soon as I poured it into my pint glass I knew I was in for a rude awakening. I love strong flavorful beers but the first taste was hard to swallow and the after taste wasn't pleasant at all. After the first two beers it was bearable, more than likely because it gave a good buzz but the next day I had the worst hangover of my life having drank 4 bottles. Having my morning coffee and cigarette the next morning I had a staring contest with that stupid little image of the elf on the label and bluntly stated "I hate you." The bottle sits proudly on my beer shelf with a side note I carved into the back of the glass with my dremel engraver "Santa's little gremlin"

Had the 2014 vintage. Sweet and delicious. Christmas-y. Sour cherry softened with tones of honey sweetness

Slightly spicy, tastes like dark fruits and honey undertones; deep red color; taste the alcohol, boozy but good
