UPDATED: MAR 15, 2011 Sampled on draft at Smokin Joe’s in Pittsburgh PA this beer poured a dark brown color with a small beige head that produced great lacing. The aroma was sweet fruit cocktail with a hint of vague spice. The flavor was sweet fruit cocktail, sugar, pear, cherry, grapefruit and pineapple The finish was long, sweet and full of fruit cocktail. Fairly full bodied. Excellent.

(12oz can thanks to ericandersnavy) clear medium amber-orange with few tan bubbles. Nose of sweaty citrus, a bit creamy and some holiday spices (cinnamon and allspice). Taste is vinous, cinnamon, pumpkin mash, oranges. Thin under-carbonated body.

12oz. can, originally sampled thanks to Dansting, and another as a bonus from alexsdad06, thanks guys. Pours a cola-ish caramel brown with a moderate fizzy tan head. Aroma is spice, toffee, caramel, and some general toasted malts. Flavor is a bit watery, with more general spice, toasted malts, toffee and caramel. Drinkable, just not too exciting.

pours a copper/brown color. I am getting pumpkin spice in the aroma. First flavor that I detect is raisin. There is some sweetness which mitigates the spice that remains with each sip. I would say this is medium heavy. Another interesting beer from 21st.

Pours hazy reddish brown with off white head. Aroma has notes of spice, caramel, touch of vanilla. Taste is some slight notes of spice, caramel, and a weird metallic taste, finishing slightly bitter. Not bad, but the tastes are pretty weak.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz can. Deep brown with a small dense light tan head. Aroma of pumpkin pie spice, toasty malt and some sourdough. The flavor is lightly sweet malt, holiday spices and a light sour taste that hits you in the back of the throat. Medium body with a mild carbonation. I’m not the biggest fan of spice dominant beers, but this is still pretty good.

12 oz can into Sam Adams lager glass. Pours a deep brown murky hue with a medium head with nice retention and nice lacework. Aroma is packed: clove, cinnamon, nutmeg...metal (knowing this brewery, this will go away shortly......it does). Taste starts out sweet and then turns sour; a slight bitterness comes out as it warms. Carbonation is medium; body is medium-full; chewy. Definitely the best "winter warmer" I’ve ever had.
