• Samuel Smith Winter Welcome (England)

    See the Full BevX Featured Review

    Deep amber color. The aroma is very complex offering scents of toasted malt, sweet caramel, dried fruits (like a great fruit cake), and a balancing earthy bitterness. The palate echoes the nose delivering a rich caramel and grain-driven core with a generous dose of baking spices and dry grains with earthy hops. Full-bodied with a lush texture ideally balancing power with delicacy. 4.5 Stars

  • Great Lakes Christmas Ale (USA)

    See the Full BevX Featured Review & Beverage of the Week

    Deep amber, reddish color with a thick and persistent head. The nose is dense with rich, sweet malt with accents of brown baking spices, ginger, cardamom, and pine cone. The palate is in full agreement being rich while never cloying. A harmonious brew with great length and balance. Rich and mildly spicy with warming malt notes and just enough hops to add a crisp edge. 4.5 Stars

  • La Trappe Tripel (Netherlands)

    Bright copper hue with brilliant clarity. Moderately full-bodied. Notes of bananas, white pepper, marzipan. Rich and weighty with a seamless mouthfeel, this is a very elegant beer. It is extremely well balanced and features a lengthy sweet, malty, and warming finish. 4 Stars

  • Lindemans Cuvée René Guezue (Belgium)

    Deep orange-gold hue and quite hazy. Extraordinarily intense gueuze aromas with typical earth and leather character. The nose is reminiscent of a dry white wine and cider hybrid with amazing ester notes. Tart and crisp with a Fino Sherry like flavors. Incredibly refreshing with zesty citrus notes. It’s a classic beer, but not for the timid. It will certainly benefit from a few years in the cellar. 5 Stars

  • Xingu Black Beer (Brazil)

    Opaque black-brown. Moderately full-bodied with mild hop bitterness. Extravagant treacle and anise aromas. Rich, creamy mouthfeel with good carbonation and dark roasted notes well balanced by sweet notes and hints of tartness. Wonderfully textured and pleasingly complex. 4 Stars

  • Orval Trappist (Belgium)

    Unlike the other Trappist breweries, Orval makes just one style of beer. Their ale is orange to brown in color with a wildly aromatic nose offering scents of grain, citrus, and coriander. The palate is medium to full filled with fruity notes accented by spice, dried hops, and wild flowers. Incredibly complex begging the next sip. This is a classic! 5 Stars

  • Young & Co. Old Nick (England)

    Tawny with amber highlights. Full body. Wonderfully rich aromas show a bananas and sweet caramel malt that follows through on the palate with rich malt sweetness and a warming bitter hop kick on the finish. A vinous, succulent style. 4 Stars

  • New Glarus Wisconsin Belgian Red (USA)

    Dark tan with a reddish tint. Medium bodied. Exotic brown spice and cooked cherry aromas. This has clearly seen good oak aging. Carries a fine note of soured cherry, matched with some sweetness and a rich, woody character that lingers on the finish. Very harmonious and quite unique. 5 Stars

  • Ommegang Hennepin (USA)

    This fresh and hoppy, farmhouse style ale has a champagne like effervescence with a crisp but light on the tongue finish. Very true to the classic Belgian style offering both rusticity with the bright flavors of spring. A wonderful brew offered at a bargain price. 4 Stars

  • Young & Co. Oatmeal Stout (England)

    Deep blackish-brown appearance. Medium-bodied. Lovely sweet malt aromas are inviting. Rich sweet caramel malt entry has a nice roasted accent that lingers through the finish. Smooth, rounded and very drinkable. Fruity hop flavors show through, especially on the finish. Complex yet wonderfully balanced. 5 Stars
