Complex & Delicious
I brewed the LMM version for a company Christmas party. About 17 days in primary then kegged and forced carbed. My friends and I are all hop heads, but we all preferred this over a Pliny the Elder clone I brewed around the same time. It's very well bodied, the spices aren't over the top, and it offers a very complex flavoring. This will definitely be brewed again next year.

good Xmas beer
This was my first all grain recipe and I doubt that I'll be going back to extracts. Did my mash and boil the last week in October, 1 week in primary, 2 in secondary, then bottled. Tried after 3 weeks in bottle and the spices came through a little more than I liked but by the time Xmas rolled around this beer was awesome. Great, easy to drink holiday recipe. Thanks AHS!!

Yummy spiced ale
Made the DME version. After 3.5 weeks in bottle properly carbed. Just split two bottles with my son now for Christmas dinner. Very subtle spice flavor. Yummy ale flavor. Dark red color. Will do this one again next year.

Classic Review
Tasty. A bit too bitter for me, but this could mellow with time. Nice spice combination which lends that typical Winter Warmer type of flavor.

Classic Review
Not a bad beer, took awhile to condition and carbonate but it was probably my fault. Has aged well and tastes better now (2 months). Spiciness is there but not over the top. Friends seem to like it as well.
