I’m Dreaming of a Weiss Christmas

Behind door number four…

 

We have Soft Xmas aka Pretty Please with a Cherry on Top from Evil Twin Brewing. A imperial stout from the denizens of doing things a little differently.

According to the brewers, “If Christmas is a tough one for you, Soft Xmas will definitely sweeten dark times of endless caroling, abundance of food and difficult domestic obligations”.

 

The tradition of putting tangerines in stockings comes from 12th-century French nuns who left socks full of fruit, nuts and tangerines at the houses of the poor.

Evil Twin Soft Xmas

 

Soft Xmas pours a deep black brown with lots of thick mocha coloured head. There is vanilla, malt and heavy liqour note on the nose. This one is medium bodied with a smooth mouth feel that makes this beer deceptively drinkable for a 10.9% beer. The flavours are big rich malt and winter spices. The spiciness continued through to the finish. As it warms to room temperature Soft Xmas opens up a lot bringing more of the liqour character to the forefront. An excellent winter warmer and a beer that really says Christmas through and through.

 

Soft Xmas is setting the candy cane bar high with nine out of a possible ten.
