I used this one http://byo.com/recipe/709.html but let it boil an extra 15 mins or so. Came out just a touch sweeter and a lot hoppier. Cracked the first one open yesterday to rave reviews.

Now if my IPA would have turned out as good.

Here's a recipe for a St. Arnold's Christmas Ale clone from my LHBS.

ST. ALMOST XMAS ALE
Purchase Kit: Liquid or Dry yeast

A miraculously restorative strong ale. Malty smooth. After a couple these, you'll see the Star in the East
8 lbs. amber unhopped malt extract
1 1/2 lbs. Munich malt
1 lb. Belgian Cara-Munich malt
1/2 lb. Belgian Special B malt
2 oz. chocolate malt
1 oz. Perle hops (bittering)
1 oz. Liberty hops (flavoring)
1 oz. Liberty hops (finishing)
1/2 tsp. calcium chloride water salts
1 pkg. Safale S-04 (or Wyeast #1968, #1098, #1272, #1056, #1007 or White Labs English, British, or California ale yeast)
1 pkg. Bru-Vigor (yeast food)
3/4 cup corn sugar (for priming)
O.G. - 1.063 -- F.G. - 1.015

Here is one that I used to do, and I am drinking an all-grain version of it as I type this:

8lbs lme
3 lbs dme
.5 lbs victory malt
.5 toasted malt
.5 crystal 200
1 oz Chinook 60 minutes
1 oz Centennial 30 minutes
1 oz Centennial 5 minutes
1 oz Cascade 5 minutes (or dry hop--I have done both and ususally opt to dry hop).
I add irish moss and 1 tsp gypsum
american ale yeast (liquid)

I get an og of about 1.076
