Dogbrick (8660) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 14, 2011
This beer is a dark ruby-brown color with a medium light beige head that recedes steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of sweet spices and caramel malt. Light body with flavors of bready malt, cinnamon, ginger and caramel. The finish is sweet and malty with a mildly sweet spice aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

Finhead (1215) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - NOV 29, 2011
A rich amber pour with a creamy, tan head. The aroma has a lot of cinnamon along with some caramel and toast. The light body has a watery texture with lively carbonation. It has a mildly sweet taste with the spices appearing in the finish.

unclemattie (4262) - Georgia, USA - NOV 27, 2011

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 22, 2011
Bottle at GABF. Pours a nice enough amber with a frothy head. Nose is not over the top, which is good. Light cinnamon notes on the nose with some soft maltiness. On taste, pretty dry with light cinnamon on the palate and a bready wheat cracker thing that works. Not too bad.

PorterPounder (5704) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 21, 2011
Tallahassee, Fl - Publix Supermarket - 12 oz bottle. Pours a very dark amber - slightly sparkling with a very thin off-white head. Aroma is fragrant and fresh and reminds me of walking by a Cinnabon at an airport. Flavor is spicy-sweet with some cinnamon roll sweetness, bready doughiness, some cinnamon flavored powdered doughnuts. Nutty back end. Mouthfeel leans to the thick side. Surprisingly enjoyable.

drowland (6156) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - NOV 21, 2011
11/21/11. 12oz bottle from the winter mix 12 pack. Barely hazed amber pour with a small khaki head that cuts, but lasts, and laces just a bit. Sweet, sugary, spiced aroma that reminds of caramel apples or spiced cider. Sweet, spiced (lots of cinnamon) flavor that again reminds a ton of spiced apple cider. This is actually quite pleasant - it reminds of the fall - but I can’t imagine drinking a ton of this stuff.

Dark mahogany brown-red. Beige cover. Aroma is lots of spicing, cinnamon, apple pie. Taste is pretty much apple pie, cinnamon, caramelized apples. Sweet.

Tmoney99 (11075) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 14, 2011
Bottle. Poured clear brown with an average frothy brown head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate sweet malt and spice aroma. Medium with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium spice and dark sweet malt flavor with a medium spice sweet finish of moderated duration. Soft drinkable session seasonal.

Westmeister (1830) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 12, 2011
Pours a ruby/ brown with tan head. The cinnamon jumps right out on the nose With other holiday spices. Taste is is like apple pie minus the apples. Sweet with cinnamon, sugar nutmeg with the caramel malts. I thought this was ok, but actually gave the other half to my wife as she really liked it. Just too much simplicity of sweet and spice.
