Christmas/Winter Specialty Spiced Beer
About Christmas/Winter Specialty Spiced Beer
Christmas and Winter Specialty Spiced Beers tend to be amber to very dark brown in color. Beers of this style should simply smell like Christmas. Their aromas may hint of gingerbread, pine, winter spices and dried fruit. The body of these beers will be richly malty, with dark flavors of caramel, nuts and chocolate. Spices and fruit flavors should act to play off this malt backbone and generate a full and warming flavor in the body. Beers of this kind will be strong, full in body, and solid in finish.
