Southern Tier Brewing Company, Lakewood, NY, 2X Christmas Ale 8%abv. is billed by the brewery as double spiced ale. The brewer reflects on the many Nordic folk who populate the area of New York where the brewery is located as an inspiration for this beer. The Nordic drink Glogg is cited for the recipe. Glogg, a traditional warm drink of red wine spiced with cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, clove an even dried fruit to take the chill off the bones from winter days. Southern Tier takes that recipe and adds it to a rich brown ale.
The 2X Christmas Ale is dark amber red with a nice tan head. Roasted malt is the first to hit the nose before the baking spices and molasses take over. The palate has all of the baking spices up from followed by peppermint and roasted malt. The more I tasted the brew it reminded me of cold New York nights and candy canes. This makes a great after dinner beer sitting next to a fireplace. And unlike glogg, drink this chilled.
