Just getting around to rating this one. Sweet and malty, caramel, spice. I thought this beer was a little heavy on the flavor. Seemed to have a lot going on.

Similar to the Winter Abbey Ale that I really enjoy. This one is inferior as the taste is a little thinner and the aroma isnít as pleasant. Might be more enjoyable during wintertime, rather than mid-spring.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle - Pours clear amber with a small tan head. It has a mild spicy aroma. The flavor is sweet with caramel, minimal hops, and plenty of cinnamon spice. It has a bubbly palate and actually works pretty well.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep amber color with thick slightly off white foam cap. Aroma is strong cinnamon and brown sugar. Taste deep caramel malt at first, with cinnamon on the back side. Cinnamon gradually fades on the finish without being unpleasant. Interesting style, yet very sessionable on a cold day.

Bottled. Poured clear, medium amber with a creamy beige head. The aroma picked up lots of cinnamon and nutmeg over toasted bread and molasses notes.. some orange peel toward the back of the nose.. wintery and welcoming. The flavor found soft bread and caramel at the core, with tangy wheat, orange peel, cinnamon, and nutmeg around.. finished spicy and warm. Medium-bodied with creamy carbonation on the palate.. well-balanced and tasty.

Bottle from a seasonal 12 pack left at my house during a holiday party. Served tonight in a snifter because thatís what was close. Beautiful reddish amber pour with a short lived khaki head. Fruitcake aroma...and thatís a good thing. Yeasty, doughy, and candied fruit like raisins, currants, and dried cinnamon apples. Taste is like apple pie in a glass. I can taste all of the components from cinnamon apple glaze, crust, and fresh apples. This is a pleasant surprise. What doesnít surprise me is the lower ratings because of the label. Put a New Glarus sticker on this bottle and watch the ratings soar!

You can really taste the cinnamon, and it gives a lovely after taste. Perfect on a frosty day

Excellent. Pours nice. Low amount of head. Added an orange in the glass, went well with the floral aroma.

From memory, I am trying to catch up the last couple of months. Bought this in a Holiday Sampler Pack. They went a little overboard with the spices on this one. I like the taste of beer, additives should not be overwhelming for me.
