2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice copper and bronzed coloured body with a two centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of spice, light malt, caramel and some syrup or other sweetness. Light to Medium-bodied; Assertive caramel and strong sweetness with a little bit of spice and herbs coupled with a touch of grain on the end. Aftertaste is mainly sweet with a little malt, but I donít notice any wheat at all. Overall, a decent spicey beer with a good sweetness profile and not much complexity. Still, nice to sample given that itís not a typical style that youíd find around and not one that I can find at all back home on the East Coast. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Total Beverage in Thornton, Colorado yesterday on 15-March-2016 for US$1,89 sampled in my hotel room here in Cheyenne, Wyoming on 16-March-2016.

Plechovka. Tmava mutna farba. Bublinkova hneda pena. Vo voni vyrazne skorica a klinceky a to iste aj v chuti. Toto pivo nie je pre mna na bezne pitie.

Can from head brewer, thanks! Aroma is nicely spicy, cinnamon and clove. Brown colour. Taste is really spicy too, cinnamon, clove, really reminiscent of christmas. Mostly sweet, but the body comes across a bit thin. Nevertheless a worthy christmas beer.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Head is initially small, fizzy/frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing.
Body is medium brown.
Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (caramel, toasted grain), with notes of brown sugar, cinnamon/allspice, ginger, clove, orange peel, etc.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, slightly unclean.
Medium body, syrupy/watery texture, lively/fizzy carbonation, lightly alcoholic.
Well, itís pretty much a mix of sugars and a ton of spices (which sadly ainít so nice)...whatever style it was attempting to be underneath is completely lost. The aroma isnít unpleasant, really, but itís just so overboard with spices that it becomes a novelty beer. Itís worse in the mouth, where the sticky, syrupy sugars wonít go away in the finish, nor will some minor dirty flavors. Almost impossible to enjoy in any way. The fourth (out of four) drain pour from Bonfire and thus the last thing I plan to ever try from this place.

12 oz can from Evergreen Discount into my NBB globe glass. Brown and hazy with an off-white head and light lacing. Aroma is full of spices (nutmeg, pumpkin, cinnamon) and bready malts. Similar flavor with an average body and a lingering finish. Not too shabby.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
12 oz can (excellent) pours opaque brown with a small white head. Definitely some cinnamon on the nose, with an added perk of diacetyl. Holy shit. Butter overpowers all of the special spices they threw in this beer. Leaves a gross, slick feeling in the mouth. Drain.
