Pours reddish brown with a tan head. Nice spicy aroma. Taste is full of spice with a quick finish. Nothing special.

Dark brown with ruby tint and tan head. Malty aroma with cloves and cinnamon. Sweet malty taste some raisins. Kind of tart for my liking and then cinnamon and cloves in finish.

Disappointed with this one, looks and smells great, tastes totally boring and average. Drinkable, but not something Iíd recommend.

Can. Pours clear dark brown to black with an average, frothy light tan head, medium retention with fair lacing. Aroma is cookie, caramel, nutty, and toast malt, light perfume alcohol, spicy and earthy hops, dark fruity esters of dates and plums with light spices (cinnamon, nutmeg). Flavor is toasted malt with caramel and nutty notes, cinnamon, nutmeg, dates and plums, spicy alcohol, light hops and bitterness with a sweet mouthfeel yet dry finish. Full body, medium-high warmth, and medium carbonation.

Disappointed with this one. These winter warmer brews are starting to piss me off. Smelled of clove, raisin, booze, and ginger. Taste was ALL over the place. I feel like they had no direction with this ale and just kind of threw ingredients in at random. Blah. Iíll stick to the hop crisis.

Can. Pours clear dark copper with a thick and rocky tan lacy head that fades without much ado. Aroma is dominated by spice with a little brown sugar behind it. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Spicy sweet taste with subtle bits of roasty malt and a dry, spice-laden finish.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz can served in HFB stemware. Pours a clear copper with a billowing tan head. Nose includes lots of spices(nutmeg, clove, cinnamon) and some sweet malts. Spices dominate the taste as well, maybe a bit of fruity ale yeast. Way too much carbonation and quite dry in the finish. I just donít know.
