Loved
Southern Tier Pumpking

Liked
Fort Collins Big Shot Hazelnut Brown Ale
Corsendonk Christmas Ale

Finished it but won't order again
Winters Bourbon Cask Ale

Did not finish
Tommyknocker Cocoa Winter Porter (there may have been a contamination issue or something, downright nasty imo).

I love Bourbon beers, but Bourbon Cask Ale is just a poor excuse for a beer.

I should have known it would suck being a product of Anheuser-Busch.

Anchors Christmas Ale - Best one they have ever done
Full Sail Wreck the Halls - First beer I ever had from Full Sail. Great choice
