jb (2204) - Rochester, New York, USA - SEP 12, 2008
Nutmeg aroma, cola look, thin head. Heavy cinammon taste. Real spicy, Christmas spicy, not chipotle. This is a one beer type beer, maybe better near the holidays.

1010 (309) - Midlothian, Virginia, USA - AUG 8, 2008
Appearance: Pours dark cloudy amber. Smell: smells of nutmeg and other spices. Taste: Taste carmel with a sweet nutmeg aftertaste. Drinkability: I couldn’t imagine having a few of these because of the sweetness. One beer is probably enough before you move on to something else. Note: I did try this one in the summer and its a winter beer. Maybe trying it in the right season would help things out a bit. Serving type: bottle

ChainGangGuy (4386) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUL 12, 2008
Appearance: Pours a clear, dark amber body with a small, wispy, white head. Smell: English-minded malts laid against a backdrop of strong notes of ginger, various spices, and tart-smelling fruits. Taste: Sweet caramel maltiness is somewhat obscured but a jolt of tart fruitiness. Then the ginger, then the spices. Even a dash of table sugar. Not much in the way of hops beyond a very light bitterness. Tart finish with a lingering taste of sliced ginger. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: Lose that questionable tartness and you just may have something here.

12oz bonus. Bonus via trade. Pours orange with a big fluffy tan head. Spiced nose, and a sugary semi putrid taste. Its ok but really not my thing.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 10, 2008
Pours a transparent copper amber with a stringy-lacing off-white head. Aroma of sweet caramel malt and cinnamon sugar. Body starts with lots of lemon citrusy acidity and some holiday spice and pine before a thinner, fizzy finish. The tartness seems out of place, but might otherwise be a decent spice beer.

unclemattie (4200) - Georgia, USA - MAY 10, 2008
12oz bottle. Pours medium brown. Aroma of cinnamon. Flavor is a touch tart. Finishes like a cola. Not very pleasant.

ATLBeerDog (280) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 10, 2008
Pours a beautiful rust color that is extremely clear – not much head with extremely light lacing and below average carbonation. The dominate smell is a sweet cake like spice. First taste is light, sweet, with a cake like spice of ginger and cinnamon that dominates. It is followed by a light bitterness.

kyzr (1152) - Belgrade, Montana, USA - APR 4, 2008
Bottle thanks to ogglethorp. Pours amber with small white head. Ginger and cinnamon with a touch of sweet malt on the nose. Flavor has more ginger, very stong that really dominates the taste. Hint of roast, with a touch of mulled spice finish.
