More Yule Tide Libations

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.
6%ABV
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 belgian 
11.2% 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
7.3 Alcohol/Volume
