mcberko (14401) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 12, 2014
On tap at the Alibi Room, pours a deep dark mahogany / brown with a small beige head. Aroma brings out various Christmas spices, English malt and subtle toffee notes. Flavour brings out loads of English malts, toffee, dried dark fruits (plum especially), and some spices mixed in thee without being too overburdening. Very well-constructed, though a little light on the palate for being 8.5%. Good stuff.

Ferris (12728) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 10, 2014
Draft - Orange, malts and some spice. Cloudy brown with a nice rich beige head. Orange, Christmas spice, malts and a spice and light peel finish. Too much going on for me.

On tap at Hops in New West. Dark, sweet, fruity and malty. Body is thin. finish is sweet. A bit too sweet for a thin-bodied beer. 3.4.

Draught at Alibi Room, Vancouver
Dark brown color, small creamy head. The aroma is lightly spicy/minty. Caramel flavor, with moderate sweetness, and loads of nutmeg; correct bitterness. Funny beer; the underlying Ale is not bad. At least nutmeg is better than cinnamon. Decent.

JoeMcPhee (9267) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 19, 2004
Cloudy brown beer with a thin white head. Aroma is completely unlike anything Ive ever had. Pine/juniper combined with lemon and grapefruit citrus. Oily and vineous texture. Flavour shows loads of lemon, warm baking spices, yeasty and a spicy citrusy finish. Very tasty... I need more.
