Winter Beervana #2
Shiner Holiday Cheer - 5.4% abv. This is your beer if you like slightly sweet pecan and peach flavors. Pecan is subtle, peach not so much. Touch sweet to drink more than one, but fits well into a long night of holiday brews.
Mikkeller Santa's Little Helper - 10.9% abv. Deliciously spiced Belgian dark ale. Not too sweet, or syrupy, with the alcohol well hidden behind a complex grain bill that lends this beer subtle bread, caramel, and dark fruit flavors under a cardamom and mace led assortment of spices.
