Thanks to Argo I believe for this one. 2003 vintage as well. Bit on the sweet and malty side of the fence. Decent

i was glad to come across this one, as i have wanted to try it for a while. sweet malty and rich, this one is really pretty good. pours out a dark brown color that seems to be a traditional color from the beers in the spice category. something i would recommend, a pretty nice brew all in all.

Pours a dark orange with a nice white head. Aroma is sweet and the flavor is very holiday. A nice sample indeed.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a burnt orange. A fluffy white head lingers in the glass. Reminds me of the aromas in rogue hazelnut nectar brown from many years ago. Noted nuttiness to it. Smooth as silk. Malty finish lines you up for a second one. Quite nice.

Dreft. Nice amber color with thin white head. Sweet and spicy with lots of fruit. Flavor galore. Feels really good on the tongue and smooth going down. Last drop as good as the first drop. Even with the other flavors, the hops show through. I really like this.

certainly warms the body on cold winter days. a nice dark amber color with a thin of white head. Sweet aroma with caramel and spice notes. Taste was sweet with caramel, cinnamon nutmeg and some corrainder. Seemed to have a nice alcohol presence for 6.9%. Reall smooth.

Tap. Deep copper color. Whiteish head. Decent lacing. Nice sweet and somewhat spicey aroma. Malty, spices and for some strange reason chocolate flavors mix well. Medium bodied with a smooth palate. Nice.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Orangeish mahogney color with a small light brown head. Aroma is fairly sweet with lots of fruit notes, mainly cherries and hints of nutmeg. Moderate sweetness initially that leads to an earthy bitterness. Nutmeg, clove and cinnamon are all detected in the finish. Worth a try

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Deep orange and clear in color with a nice tan head. Aroma is malty and hoppy. Gentle spice with some fruityness. Malty flavor is big but well balanced with spices. Not bad. Decent.
