Default Christmas Beers

What styles of beer would you make for Christmas? By the way, I'm in Florida where it probably wont reach below 50 degrees.

Right now I'm leaning towards a nice Old Ale around 9% abv. Something with a little bit of heat on it to warm you up around a campfire.

Anyone else have any ideas for a Christmas/New Years beer? Thanks in advance!

I did a foreign extra stout three ways: plain, with pb2, and with rum barrel oak. I also picked up NB's Saison de Noel kit.... I will doctor it up a bit, but haven't decided how yet.
