Notes

Remember to crush spices. Use my suggestions or add Christmasy spices of your choice (Cardamom, Cinnamon/Cassia, Vanilla, Nutmeg, Ginger, Anis, Cloves etc).

For simplicity add everything with 10 minutes left of boil except the mahlab and the cherries, which are added at the end of boil.

Brewed this before Christmas 2016. People couldn't get enough of it. Lots of Christmas spices in aroma/flavour, but still much more drinkable and less cloying than traditional winter warmers due to fairly light malt bill and relatively high IBU.
