(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.

12 oz. can- Pours dark deep brown with a nice tan head, aroma is spices like cinnamon, nutmeg and probably alot more. The flavor is caramel and spices with a warming alcoholic bite, I don’t think the flavors blend very well, it needs a little more of something else or a little less of something. Its a good but not great winter warmer.

Dark mahogany brown color with a thin head. Aroma is caramel, co2, and cinnamon. Flavor is a bit thin and a bit too sweet, but I enjoy the rich roasty flavor, so that’s all right. Thin mouthfeel. This beer wants to be served with a turkey dinner.
