I can't believe I'm actually doing an update today!
The other day I decided to finally try this after having it tease and taunt me for nearly a month.
Rogue Santa's Private Reserve
Although it really seemed like a real interesting brew, I was a little disappointed at first but then some of its underlying beauty started to bloom towards the end.
Nice and hoppy with a nice toasty malt, but what threw me off for a spin was this overbearing flavor of spruce, almost like a perfume really. Honestly not a bad brew, but I think it's certainly a once a year beer.
Try it out some time especially it your house is lacking a tree and you absolutely need to huff some Xmas tree.
