Hoppin Frog Frosted Frog Christmas (beer review)

8.6% ABV. Picked up a 750ml bottle from the Hoppin’ Frog Brewery in Akron, Ohio after Christmas weekend by chance at a local wine/beer store. This winter warmer is among one of my favorite “festive” beer where the essence of Christmas is captured in this very bottle – perfectly blended spices compliment Frosted Frog’s rich malt flavors, creating the ultimate Christmas experience. There is plenty of cinnamon with hints of cloves and nutmeg, as well as subtle malty and woody undertones. It comes out of the bottle a dark, mostly transparent reddish mahogany with a decent light tan head. Flavor is malty with a firm overtone of cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg – and maybe some horehound as well. There is a bit of sharp candy sweetness and just a whisper of raw wood. Texture is sharp, crisp and fizzy, leaving behind a tingly, spicy finish. Beeradvocate: B+, Ratebeer: 89/100. Moneybeer: B+.
