nick76 (4322) - Tampa, Florida, USA - DEC 19, 2012
The aroma is sweet, yeasty, and fruity with caramel malt and spices. The appearance is cloudy dark amber with a large head. The taste is bitter and soapy with some fruit and spice but not what I expected from the aroma. The palate is average and the finish somewhat dry. Overall a beer that had promise in the aroma but disappoints in the flavor arena.

Huhzubendah (3098) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 12, 2012
The beer is chestnut brown with a thin beige cap. The aroma offers malt, holiday spices, brown sugar, brown bread, light sweetness. Light malty sweetness, with brown bread and perhaps a touch of cinnamon. Pretty tasty. Medium bodied with adequate carbonation. Alcohol presence is minimal. Pretty smooth feel. Overall, this was solid, but not exceptional.

Considerando la gradazione alcolica, bisogna fare i complimenti perchè ha davvero una facile beva, però non mi convince completamente, forse un pò troppo furbetta...

zaf (291) - ITALY - DEC 9, 2012
aroma: caramel, toast, licorice, alcohol, apparenza: brown, hazy, minimal head, gusto: medium sweetness, lightly bitter, palato: medium body, creamy, soft carbonation, long finish, è da tempo che volevo assaggiarla e non sono rimasto deluso assolutamente..aroma deciso, classico di questo stile di birra (frutta secca,malto tostato,sentori speziati),gusto altrettanto speziato e piacevole,ma poco corposa e con poca schiuma..finale lungo e caldo bevuta all’elfo alla spina!

Christian (11983) - Odense, DENMARK - NOV 30, 2012
Hazy brown with a lasting off-white head. Aroma of orange peel, and bready malt. Sweetish flavour with some orange peel and a heavy, almost doppelbock-like malt profile, along with a touch of alcohol

DuffMan (8318) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 14, 2012
On tap @ Purple Pig in Chicago. Medium brown, frothy tan head. Initially the aroma had a yeasty cidery aroma, but with some air time the spices came forward and the dark fruits became apparent. Figs and brown sugar and Christmas spice and candied oranges. Sweet but not overly so, quite enjoyable.

Tap. Creamy light tan head, dark murky ruby brown. Lots of zesty citrus, toffee, sourish dark fruits, and a slight sweetness in the aroma. Sweet raisins, citrus, spicy, dark fruits and some sour citrus in the finish. Medium to lighter body.
