Winter Solstice brew recipes?
 
What recipes do people like for winter solstice festivities? I've just started a basic mead (my first). Maybe a little late, but I'm hoping it will be enjoyable nonetheless. I've seen a bunch of pumpkin ale threads lately too, so I'm considering it.

What else do folks like?

I am planning on brewing a holiday chocolate stout from AHS to be ready for the month of December.

Ive got a Pumpkin Ale, a Stout and a Chocolate stout conditioning, and Im thinking about making AHS's Holiday Ale, as well as dip my toes into some mead (for late winter).

I brewed a Honey Holiday Ale this past weekend and I plan on brewing some sort of spiced winter ale soon.

I just bottled that last night. 10 days in the primary and I left it in the secondary for 3 weeks. My last taste of the sample was very smooth and wonderful. I'm excited. I just have to keep my hands off it till the holidays.

I brewed a Belgian Tripel at sunrise on the Summer Solstice and bottled two cases to be opened on the Winter Solstice. On the Winter Solstice I plan on brewing a Belgian Dubbel for the Summer Solstice.
My thinking was I wanted the Tripel (light color) for when the days start getting longer and the Dubbel (dark color) for when the days start getting shorter.
That and I like the Belgian ales.

Here are my recipies.

I am planning on brewing it the first week of October, fermenting it for 3 weeks, and aging it until December. I am glad to hear it turned out great.

I brewed a RIS on the Summer Solstice that should be ready to start tasting by the Winter Solstice. Haven't figured out what I'll brew for the winter yet.
