Thanks Ian! Clear brown with a bubbly tan head. Christmas spiced aroma, light roasted malts and hint and vanilla. Flavor is very light and similar with hints of coffee and vanilla. This is left over sugar plum. Meh, it's alright.

Too much in the spice dept. Tastes like mulled brown ale. Throw a spice bag with all those holiday spices in a base brown ale. Not easy to drink.

hopscotch (9519) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 26, 2013
Bottle... Clear dark-amber pour with no head. Crazy spiciness in the aroma. Spice-rack blend of winter spices, toastiness and deep brown malts. Light to medium-bodied with lively carbonation. The flavor is well-balanced and spicy, like a gingerbread cookie. Short, crisp finish with minerals. Bottle courtesy of biggsbowler!

BVery (6965) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - OCT 25, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bomber. Brown pour with a beige head. Little bit of chili pepper on the nose. Ginger and spice. Pretty tasty! Underrated I think.

phaleslu (6812) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 26, 2013
750 ml bottle from Homer321- thanks again, Sean! Pours a hazy mahogany with a big, rocky beige head. It gushed a bit when opened. Aroma of nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice, toast, dust, nuts, chocolate, and dark fruit. Flavor is exactly the same. Light-bodied, with high carbonation and a dry, spicy mouthfeel. Overcarbonated but not bad.

Light, water profile is a little chemical. Luckily the spices are good. Unfortunately, the spices are weakening the flavor and aroma.

reggiedunlop (3218) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 23, 2013
pours brown with a thin tan head. aroma is very spicy...sprucey...almost antispetic in a faint way. flavor follows suit...spicy and a bit muddled...cant make out much but it seems antiseptic. mouthfeel is light and the finish is dry and spiced.

DaTimBennett (111) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 22, 2013
Tap at CCB. Pours brown with off white head. Smell hop and spice. Taste pepper, hop, bitterness, and a malt was at the end.

Bottle. Pours a dark brown with medium beige head. The aroma is a strong spice and nutmeg. Medium mouthfeel with a strong spice and chocolate flavor with light finish. Decent.

Bottle shared at Olympen Friluft, July 2nd 2013. Clear brown body, small white head. Spicy aroma of cinnamon, cloves, ginger, toasted malt. Taste is sweet, with cinnamon, ginger, brown sugar, red fruits, dark chocolate. I feel this beer should have a christmas theme. Short bitterness, spicy and nutty finish.
