They make very good beers. They are expensive and not a good value, but when you drink it, swill is the last word that comes to mind.

They make a Winter holiday ale with Jolly Pumpkin and Stone that is almost worth $10 a pint unless you can make your own.

Actually i think i looked at one (i think)on sale for 4.99 but skipped it and got the imperial brown.I should have known better and just got them both anyways.A winter ale didnt sound appealing at the time i guess,ill have to pick that one up while its still 5 bucks,i bet its aged a few yrs also.
Yeah with the camels on it? I just looked it up.Thats the one,guess i may pick a few up.

Buy at least two @ $5 each. It's a unique brew, but you have to be a malt/spice/herb beer drinker to enjoy it. It's not a hoppy beer.

Save it until it gets chilly outside. I recall Jolly provides the chestnuts, Stone provides the white sage and I can't remember what Nogne contributed. Stone brewed it last year, but they rotate every year.

I remember the flavor of cardamom too with notes of roasty cola. I've only tasted one beer similar to it, but they don't make it anymore.

Retired like the Shati (juniper) which was great. Ill buy em up.I think a good rainy day is a good excuse for a winter ale, Im pretty confident nobody around here has bought them even on sale.

I hope you like it.

I looked at my notes and the beer that is most similar to the Nogne/Jolly/Stone beer that I've tried is Santas Little Helper by Mikkeller which has a stronger cardamom / roasty cola note. Mikkeller makes it every year, but the recipe is different every year. I think it was a 2010 Santas Little Helper.

The juniper in the Nogne/Stone/Jolly beer wasn't obvious.

I remember buying one pint, drinking it and wishing I had bought more.
