Pours a dark brown with a thin head and no lacing. Aroma is of spice, malt and a little brown sugar. Tastes like gingerbread almost. Very interesting palate. Surprisingly crisp and not as heavy as expected!

JStax (3315) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JAN 11, 2013
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. Dark brown with a thin ring around the edge of the glass. Spicy aroma and fairly malty. Sweet and spicy on the tongue. Musty finish.

12oz bottle poured into glass. Shared at a recent tasting. Well it’s never too late for Christmas beers in my eyes and this one definitely brought the X-mas goods. Smells and taste like a Christmas basket of goodies: spice, earthy notes, slight cinnamon and brown sugar. Probably my new favorite Christmas beer I’ve had this year.

Smells like a bubblegummy and pumpkin pie spiced car wreck. I would take a normal winter warmer.

Theydon_Bois (10351) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2012
Tap at the Cask, Pimlico - 28/12/12. Obscured dark mahogony brown with a thin tan head that clears to the edge and forms a film. Nose is liqourice, aniseed, burnt toffee, dark malt, a touch medicinal. Taste comprises sweet sugars, dark malts, toffee, herbs, spice, liqourice, dark chocolate in the background. Full end of medium bodied with soft carbonation and a touch of booze in the finish. Decent warming stuff for a winters day!

This beer has great spices and wonderful aroma it's make you feel like your drinking a gingerbread house and I personally feel that it ages well also. I pulled one straight from the cellar and put one in fridge to see if there was any difference and the cellar (55f) had more aroma and flavor than the really cold one from the fridge this beer will never leave the cellar unless it goes straight into a glass ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ughsmash (7203) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 29, 2012
Bottled. Poured cola brown with a smoked beige head. The aroma picked up cinnamon, cardamom, and nutmeg over lightly toasted vanilla beans and chocolate.. molasses came through as it warmed.. malty overall, with an interesting spice component. The flavor found molasses, semi-sweet chocolate, and vanilla at the core, with cardamom and cinnamon laced throughout.. a touch sour and warm on the spicy finish. Medium-bodied with moderate carbonation on the palate.. spices grew in intensity as it warmed up.. this was good stuff that I’d drink more of if available.
