My review at AHS: Comment by John M. P on Sunday 24 October, 2010
Subtle chocolate, subtler spice. If I rebrew, then I might add 1 oz. of chocolate and an AHS Holiday Chocolate Stout Pack.
IOW, it was drinkable and a very good stout, but didn't have enough chocolate and spice for SWMBO.
I'm a fan of AHS kits. They've always been good beer. OTOH, they tend to be a bit light on the spicing.
