I had this at Global Brew. Pours brown with a tan head. Taste nutmeg, allspice, sweet. I thought this was so so. I could drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Global Brew. Pours a clear thin textured dark brown with a small light tan head. Aroma is nutmeg and clove. Taste is a sweet, yet dry, with roasted malt, cocoa and spices. Very good!

Bottle. Deep brown with overall light spices, especially when compared to many of the winter options. Good flavors, well balanced beer.

RRistow12 (664) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - DEC 9, 2013
Tasted from bottle. Pours very dark brown practically black with a thin tan head. Aroma is not near as robust as some spiced winter earners. Mostly notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves. Taste is more spices dominated than the nose. Moderate to high sweetness with minimal bitterness. Sticky sweet mouthfeel with medium body. Heavy cinnamon and nutmeg taste. If you like winter warmers/Xmas ales on the spicer side which I do, you'll enjoy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

All spice and no beer. Could have been a spiced cider. :-) I like Dark Horse, but this didn’t impress me.

rangerred (989) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - DEC 8, 2013
12oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours pitch black with a one finger darkt tan head that quickly fades away. There is really nothing in the way of lacing and barely any foam remaining on top of the beer. The aroma is quite odd. There is a very musty note too it along with some char and wood ash. Nuts are present along with some cinnamon and nutmeg. Coffee too. There is quite a bit going on but it is different. The flavor continues with the notes put forward by the aroma. Lots of nuts up front along with that same musty char. Some cinnamon and orange peel along with a sweetness that lingers throughout. Somewhat of a slick mouthfeel that is quite sticky and sweet with just a light bitterness. Overall, an ok winter warmer but far from great. The flavors are just too muddled and the sweetness needs to be dialed back a bit. Not one I will be seeking out.

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2013 Not much smell comes off this one. Alot of different flavors go together in this one. A lot of maple syrup and spices. Very different.

boxofrane (2553) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 7, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 8, 2013 Draft at beer fest. Pours hazy mahogany with a medium sized tan head. The aroma has a bunch of spices, cocoa, cinnamon. The taste has tons of bittersweet cocoa, nutmeg, semi. spicy. I liked this one.

Bottle- pours hazy hazelnut brown with minimal light brown head that fades. Nose is tons of spices. Clove, cinnamon, nutmeg and some cocoa. Much of the same on the tongue with some added nutmeg bitterness an roasted malts filling in the flavor profile. I liked this though it's a fair amount of spices that some might find overbearing. No ABV detected ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Wet bread aromas. Dark beer Offwhite head. Nutmeg tastes, breast and cloves on the palate. Creamy and nicely subtle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
