A typical winter ale in that it has notes of nutmeg, cinnamon, and pours a deep dark color with a mild head. Not to shabby.

Dark Red Amber Color, Huge Foamy Head, Lots Of Thick Soapy Lacing. Aroma of Spice, Cooked Vegetables, Hops. Sweet Malt, Cooked Vegetables, Spices, Hops.Somewhat Reminds Me of Pumpkin Beers. Hides High ABV Real Well. Very fitting to have it on a last day of inter although we have a long way to go this year, No spring in Sight Yet... While this brew was just OK on First Sips, It Grew on me. It may not be my favorite ,It grew on me and I did enjoy it. I dig it. Worth A Try.

bottle @ Party Town / Florence --- Clear amber brown color, light beige head cover, bands of lace. Taste is Malt with spice, carbonation, and finally, mild hops in the finish. Not very appealing, as the malt takes on a patina of cedar before the finish, diminishing any positive attributes.

A nice winter warmer style beer. On aroma you can pick up malts, spices. On the taste you can pick up some dark fruit, more spices and malts. It has a nice palate also.

Listed as a braggot on Untappd, but no matter its classification, I dig it. Chestnut color with thin head and lacing. Some hop presence, toffee, spices, almost a lighter barley wine flavor.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a hazy amber with half inch light tan head that lasts. Taste is of malt, caramel, nuts, spice, hops, coriander, nutmeg and ginger. Similar aroma. Has a decent body with a boozy finish. Enjoyable seasonal offering.

12oz bottle poured a medium reddish brown that is clear, minimal lacing and minimal head. the aroma is actually better than the flavor...mild to medium spice, some malt and bread and almost an alcohol burn on the end. the flavor is milder than the aroma. mild mild malt base with little to no spice on the tongue..minimal alcohol in the flavor as well...one of the weaker Christmas ales I have tried this month.

I think I didn't behave for Xmas 2014, as the two Xmas biers I drank, were not as expected! Anyhow, smooth Ale, spice traces, not a very happy Xmas for me so far!

Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a hazy burnt orange to ruddy brown color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. There was some light lacing sliding into the beer.
The smell had a decent light winter spices of ginger, allspice and clove.
The taste was mainly spicy with a gentle bready sweetness to balance.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was there and decent for the winter warmer style and for me.
Overall, I say this was a pretty good winter warmer I’d have again.
