Tan to off white head. Nice head retention and lacing. Aroma is sweet roasted malts and holiday spice. Deep Amber color. Beautiful fluffy head and lacing. Taste of deep roasted malts and sweet complexity. spices of nutmeg and ginger with a bitter hop finish. well balanced for a big beer. I really like it!

Pours bright mahogany into a shaker. Off-white head with excellent retention pancakes leaving spider lacing to coat surface. Toasted nut bread aromas. Earthy bitter leaves and twigs upfront and straight through to the lasting bitter root finish. Quite a change. Itís flavor is more like "bitter" liquor than the typical bitterness of pine and grapefruit beer offerings.

jimhilt (2390) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Pours a four-finger khaki head that fades quickly leaving some lace. Crystal clear, deep amber color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Piney, citrusy nose and flavor is spicy citrus, dry light bitter finish. Unusual winter brew. $2.35 for a 12oz bottle from Bertís Better Beers Hooksett, NH

nuplastikk (4295) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 4, 2014
12oz bottle. Deep red-brown body, looks unfilterd. Lacy off-white/beige head. Spicy ginger cinnamon allspice aroma. While it is spicy, the big malts really reign it in. Hefty, but drinkable full body. Solid offering.

UPDATED: JAN 14, 2014 Bottle- copper/burgundy. Translucent with visible carbonation. Pours to a small, off white head. Its smells piney and hoppy. it reminds me of summer and Christmas. Its a good brew. Easy to drink. Overall I would choose a different winter brew, but it is still a dang good beer.

beerfest5 (1136) - Dublin, IRELAND - DEC 3, 2011
Was really hoping this wouldnt be a winter seasonal like Ciscoís "Santas Beered", cause that tasted like cough syrup. This had the aroma of east coast hop variety ESB, color is ruby red to maroon. Obvious roasted malts with a nice hop kick in the back, a little spice to make it interesting.

blklab2007 (1940) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 31, 2014
Bottle poured a red highlighted brown color with a thin cap of off white head. Aroma has a pleasant hop profile, mild spices, and sweet malts. Mouth feel is medium and the carbonation on the lower side. Flavor again has an interesting hop, sweet malt, spices, and a clean finish.

On tap at the Cisco Brew Pub, Boston Logan Airport. An attractive copper colour with a ring of cream head that laced the glass nicely; spicy malt aroma; smooth with a caramel taste; and a dry finish with a touch of spice. Warming and satisfying.
