3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
On draft at the brewery: pours a dark reddish brown with a bit of a spicy aroma but I didn’t pick up much more than that, taste was nutmeg with a cinnamon lingering aftertaste - but not very strong. I actually thought this was pretty good.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft before Christmas: Poured a reddish amber with a nice head. The aroma was Christmas in a bottle, lots of spices. The flavor was nutmeg, cinnamon, clove, and sweet malts. Overall, it was a just that, a holiday cheer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Spices galore in this one. Unlike many spiced holiday brews that taste like a lager with pumpkin spice thrown in, this beer all the spices compliment and blend perfectly.
Nice light malt, and the cinnamon finish lingers well after the glass is empty.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pretty color in the glass with a decent head. Aroma was nondescript. On the palate the beer was fruity and hppy but nothing more.
