I could of sworn there was a touch of cherry, or raisin, or something in there...guess it's coming from the Perle?

Dave, the brewer, said the same thing before he brewed it. he swore they put spices in it, but they don't.

from St. Arnold's web page

Ingredients

Malted Barley: We use five different types of malted barley in the Christmas Ale, no other grains or cereals such as corn or rice. The large quantity of malts is responsible for the sweetness and high alcohol content.

Hops: We use two different Pacific Northwest hop varieties in the Christmas Ale. The resulting hop character is a spicy bitterness and a flowery hop bouquet.

Specifications

Original Gravity: 1.067 (17.0° Plato)

Color: Copper

Bitterness: 35 IBU

Alcohol Content
By Weight: 5.6%
By Volume: 7.0%

That's a whole lot of special b. I've read elswhere that 4 oz is the max for a 5 gal batch.

Sounds pretty darn good though. Maybe I'll give it a go next summer, it should be ready by Christmas.

the amount of special b is probably responsible for the raisin flavor. sounds good. i might have to try a clone and bring it down to austin for this christmas and see how similar they are. hopefully it wont be sold out by then.
