Can. Looks like we have some haters for this brew - I actually kind of like this one. Very dark pour with a really nice clingy brown head. Aroma of chocolate and Christmas spices. Taste is about the same as the nose. Nice smooth semi-heavy palate. Good stuff.

12oz can poured deep reddish brown with tan head. Aroma was a strong sour apple with other spices like nutmeg and corriander present. Taste was also sour and body was medium thin. Not bad but

Tap at the pit, Raleigh, nc. Black with small light head, I donít remember what it smelled like, but it tasted like a decent stout with a bunch of spices added. The mouthfeel was a little rougher than I like in a dark beer, but the spicy flavors were well balanced and complemented the malts nicely. Not too heavy and pretty easy to drink.

Poured from a 12 ounce can canned on 10-26-2011 into a pint glass.
A: Deep garnet clear body with a beautiful creamy 1 finger tan head.
S: Lots of spices, cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice with hints of dark fruits. Very inviting on Christmas Eve.
T: Too heavy on the spices here, I canít taste much but the melody of spices and it took away from the overall flavor.
M: Medium to heavy body with light fizzy carbonation.
O: Decent for the winter time, but Iíd like to see this toned down on the spices. Not very drinkable after the first one.

Decent winter warmer and definitely a winter flavor. Roasty with a shitload of dark spices...complex on the palate. Not my favorite style, but within itís category Ithought it was good/

A winter warmer. Brown that is malty and spices are mostly nutmeg and cinnamon. Pleasant and drinkable. Medium mouthfeel, above average carbonation. brown with a minimal head.Malty aroma, surprisingly little spices in nose.

From the can purchased at The BeerHive in Pittsburgh. Iím having trouble understanding the low opinions on what I thought was a relatively fantastic beer. There are a million mystery tastes to explore here, and a smoothness on the swallow that has few rivals. Knowing that FDR enjoyed his alcoholic beverages to a large degree is a good pairing to this not to be missed ale. Eagerly looking forward to 21st Amendmentís other offerings.

12oz can. Dark brown with a slight ruby hue, creamy mocha head. Sweet malt with some vegetables and slight sourness present, nutmeg, cinnamon, and vanilla - not necessarily a pleasant combination. Carbonation seems slightly high, still smooth, slightly sweet, spice is overdone, become dry and slightly cloying in terms of sweetness. Not a huge fan.

Beautiful appearance. Dark dark color. Aroma is not good. Aroma is not bad either. Tastes of alcohol on the palate, along with vanilla. Overall above average.
