Ahh, childhood memories of stop animation Christmas classics. Is it just me or is there any other non-Burton stop animation movies that feature other holidays?
Rumor has it, this beer used to be called Rudolph's Reserve but a brewery by the name of Rudolph already had a reserve. So they changed the name and I, for one, am glad they did. I love the play on words.
This is a strong dark Belgian ale that tops the scales at 10.5%. I am actually going to suggest that this be a pre-movie pairing because it will help dull your senses, just a bit. I just watched the first 10 minutes and I forgot how annoying Rudolph's nose is when it glows. Why does it have to have that high pitched whistle sound? If I had been drinking a 10.5% beer earlier, I may have made it 15 minutes into the movie!-)
