jmgreenuk (3587) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 7, 2014
Tap at the Beer Temple, Amsterdam. Poured a clear dark brown with a frothy light tan head. The aroma is rich red berry fruit, yeast and dark chocolate. The flavour is medium bitter light sweet with a spicy fruit malt chocolate palate and a short bitter sweet finish. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Lots going on here. Liked it a lot.

caesar (4721) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - APR 4, 2014
Tap @ BeerTemple, small sample. Dark color, medium off-white head. Aroma is quite spicy, caramel, hint of chocolate, toffee. The spices overpower, but never get too much as they are backed up by quite some malt. In flavor it has some sweetness and a soft bitterness. Again the spices power up the beer, but I could easily drink a small sampler and maybe even another glass. But I had more to try on the tap list :P

AWISLguy (1051) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 5, 2014
Bottle from Breeze Thru. Pours cola colored with an off-tan spongey head. Many spots of lace. Aroma has spices (certainly nutmeg and cinnamon), caramel with some roast. Taste is hugely spices - especially cardamon/cinnamon, with some ginger - some caramel and some fruit. Light to medium bodied. Finishes spiced. Quite holiday-ish, but light and without much body.

Strong spice aroma-nutmeg, ground cinnamon, clove. Taste is similar. Very rich, smooth, spices like a strong egg nog or pie. Slight roasty finish.

beerbaaron (933) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 29, 2014
Pours dark brown with some reddish highlights. Small beige head. Aroma features spices, along with some roast and chocolate, molasses, light fruitiness. Medium body. Flavor is very spiced. I’m reminded of gingersnaps. Spot on. Finish is all holiday spices, fair bitterness and dryness. Yep. Gingersnaps.
