I'm leaning more toward the malty and stout like flavors of Breckenridge Brewery Christmas ale over the Sierra Nevada.
I would drink that celebration ale over the Sierra Nevada Pale any day though....wish it wasn't just the Holiday release.

I have only tried two seasonal beers so far and both have been great.

Descheutes Jubelale
Widmer Brrr

Both excellent.

Ahhh, I forgot about that. In that case, Flying Fish's Grand Cru. I am sure that there is another that I am forgetting but...

Can't pick a favorite, but I had Southern Tier Old Man Winter Ale last night, very good IMHO.

Sam Winter is ok, better on tap.

Harpoon Winter Warmer is not great in my opinion.

Not really a "Winter Warmer" guy so to speak, so instead I'll break the mold and say:

Either (North Coast) Old Rasputin RIS or (Flying Dog) Gonzo Imperial Porter. (North Coast) PranQster is a close 3rd, but isn't as "warming".

Got the SA Holiday mixer last year... HATED. HAAAAATED. the Old Fezziwig, the Holiday Porter, and the Winter Lager. Seriously, I liked the Cranberry Lambic better than those three. The Cream Stout is the only thing that "made up for" that gift pack.

Speaking of Southern Tier have you tried their Creme Brulee stout? I had this last July while I was in the Buffalo area, all I can say is damn it is good. That being said my personal fav for a winter beer is Rahr's Winter Warmer and their Whisky Warmer. The Whisky Warmer is the same as the Winter Warmer but it has be cask aged in Makers Mark barrels for 2 months.
