Dark brown pour with an off-white head. The aroma has nutmeg, ginger, and a hint of chocolate. It reminds me of a Christmas cookie. It has a medium body with sticky texture and average carbonation. The taste is sweet, but with just enough spice to keep it under control.

12ozz bottle. Temp on the back porch reads -5f, so a winter warmer is very much needed. Dark brown with a thin tan head. Nice aroma of spice. Reminds me of pumpkin, nutmeg, gingerbread. Sticky molasses taste. Spices really linger in the finish.

Dark brown with a tan head. The aroma is of chocolate malt, nutmeg, clove, with slight alcohol and a touch of roast. The flavor has less of the spice, with some chocolate and toasted malt flavors dominating. Full, almost creamy body with excellent balance. Tasty stuff.

12 oz bottle. 2013 vintage. The pour is a deep brown, almost black with a lot of sediment and a thin tan head that offers no lace as it falls to a ring. The aroma is just what it's advertised. It's a lot of spices and a little boozy. An alcoholic gingerbread cookie with a bit of allspice. Not too bad. There is just so much nutmeg and spice that it's a little intense. The flavor is much spicier. There is a lot of gingerbread happening here with a lot of nutmeg. It is winter outside and this beer is doing some warming. Not bad. The mouth feel is a little thin, but well carbonated. It doesn't hang around too long. The aftertaste is gingerbread and a little boozy. Not too bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This beer is exactly as advertised, it definitely has a warming effect. Good alcohol content, good mix of winter spices, and a good time was had by all!

Looking at it and smelling it, this seemed like a great idea...then I drank it. This tastes like oversteeped herbal tea mixed with cough syrup and a good IPA. Given that I’m not an IPA person, not my thing.

Dark brown pour, smells of boozy gingerbread. Tastes follow right along in the spice/molasses arena, but with a little hop bite at the back. Well balanced, a very good holiday beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 ounce bottle. Barely translucent dark brown color. Moderate creamy beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, molasses and nutmeg. Interesting roasted malt flavor has notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, clove and tart yeastiness. Rather sweet in the mid taste where the spices really come forward. Soapy hop finish. Overall, different, but good.
