Is this the standard bottle? If so, how does it compare versus previous bottlings.

Picked this beauty up from Hi Time for holiday enjoyment.

Fresh barley, Parma violets, very waxy, fine cigar smoke subtly intense finish. Goes on and on. Very nice.

Local brew Tuesday. Another Bell's in the line up. I swear eventually I will run out of ones to try, and become less fond of the ones I enjoy.

Bells Christmas Ale. A Scotch style ale.
