A handful of craft brews for the holiday season.
Samuel Smith's "Winter Welcome Ale"
77% overall user rating at Ratebeer
I would give it a 70% because nothing really stood out about it as a whole, but still a good beer.
English Strong Ale
Stone Brewery "Double Bastard" Ale
100% overall user rating at Ratebeer
I would give it a 90%, lots of flavors going on, and a strong citrus tone to it. Reminded me of a belgian11.2% ABV
Allagash Black Belgian Style Stout
98% overall user rating at Ratebeer
I would agree, roasted flavors, with a hint of alcohol at the finish. Good stuff
